Thoughts for the Day

Hello 2014!

I hope you had a wonderful New Year’s celebration and are ready for a fresh start this year.

I still can’t believe how quickly 2013 went – every year goes by a little faster, it’s starting to get spooky.

“The days are long, but the years are short.”  Ohhhh my, yes.

Here!  Some wisdom to kick off 2014 from The Happiness Project Journal….I am excited and hopeful for what’s to come!

“Indolence is a delightful but distressing state:  We must be doing something to be happy.” – William Hazlitt

“In order that people may be happy in their work, these three things are needed:  They must be fit for it.  They must not do too much of it.  And they must have a sense of success in it.” – John Ruskin

“The supreme accomplishment is to blur the line between work and play.” – Arnold Toynbee

“A man does not work only for the sake of producing, but to set a value on his time.  We feel more satisfied with ourselves and with our day if we have stirred up our minds and made a good start, or have finished a piece of work.” – Eugene Delacroix

“Novelty is stimulating and valuable.  However, the pleasure of doing a thing in the same way, at the same time, every day, and savoring it, is worth noting.”
