True happiness

14 Jun
True happiness is to enjoy the present, without anxious
dependence upon the future, not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or
fears but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is sufficient, for he
that is so wants nothing. The great  blessings of mankind are within us
and within our reach. A wise man is content with his lot, whatever it be,
without wishing for what he has not.

(4 B.C. – 65 A.D., Spanish-born Roman Statesman, philosopher)
