Poems and Prose
To Be Happy
Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
To speak of health, happiness, and prosperity to every person that you meet.
To make all your friends aware of the special qualities within them.
To look at the sunny side of every thing and
let your optimism work to make your dreams come true.
To think, work for, and expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others, as you are about your own.
To forget past mistakes and press on towards a greater future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times, as a smile radiates warmth and love.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time left to criticize others.
To be too wise for worry, too tolerant for anger, and too courageous for fear.
To Be Happy.
