Seeking the saught after

is to be/to have/to gain happiness?

I think a lot of things.
Waking up to a seventy degree sunshine day after 10 hours of sleep.

Getting pretty daisies and exotic japanese plants from people who love you makes me happy. Giving pretty things to people I love makes me happy also.

I want to be this woman:
 “The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever seen before.” –Albert Einstein

“when i was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. when I went to school, they asked me what i wanted to be when i grew up. i wrote down ‘happy’. they told me i didn’t understand the assignment, and i told them they didn’t understand life.”
– john lennon
 The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance, the wise grows it under his feet.
 I think reading books about happiness is funny.  I loved trying out these books..... but 

it is this one that makes me most happy! (its a little tarnished)

“To be nobody but
yourself in a world
which is doing its best day and night to make you like
everybody else means to fight the hardest battle
which any human being can fight and never stop fighting.”
ee cummings


  1. John Lennon quote...So nice.

    I love Betsy Flood!

  2. I love all these awesome quotes and insights!

  3. There is sadness in that light, though the child reading did not realize it, could not have thought it. I realize now, with muscles and heart beating.
    The sadness had no reason, and no expression, but that familiar hatching of light on the wall reminds me life is not, cannot be, all happiness. There is sadness even in the light here.
