Happiness

Me once commented on this post, and she mentioned a quote that I really liked:

“Action seems to follow feeling, but really action and feeling go together; and by regulating the action, which is under the more direct control of the will, we can indirectly regulate the feeling, which is not. Thus the sovereign voluntary path to cheerfulness, if our spontaneous cheerfulness be lost, is to sit up cheerfully and to act and speak as if cheerfulness were already there. If such a conduct does not make you feel cheerful, nothing else on that occasion can.”Professor William James, a famous American psychologist.

“A child can teach an adult three things: to be happy for no reason, to always be busy with something, and to know how to demand with all his might that which he desires” yes again…Coehlo’s quote….it is just very true.
