This is one of my favorite quotes of all time. From philosopher Epicurus. Words to live by every day, once we have what we want it ceases to make us happy and we are on to wanting the next thing. Be grateful, appreciate, and you will be happy.
Compassion can be put into practice if one recognizes the fact that every human being is a member of humanity and the human family regardless of differences in religion, culture, color and creed. Deep down, there is no difference. ~The Dalai Lama
