Happiness … keeps you Sweet!
Trials … keep you Strong!
Sorrows … keeps you Human!
Failure … keeps you Humble!
Success … keeps you Glowing!
But only, Faith … keeps you Going!

A child on a farm sees a plane fly overhead dreams of flying, while a pilot on the plane sees the farmhouse and dreams of returning home. That’s Life! Enjoy yours … If wealth is the secret to happiness, then the rich should be dancing on the streets. But only poor kids do that! If power ensures security, then VIP’s should walk unguarded. But those who live simply, sleep soundly. If beauty and fame bring ideal relationships, then celebrities should have the best marriages!Live simply, be happy! Walk humbly and love genuinely!
