Man's Search For Happiness

True happiness is the goal that is constantly reached for and in some cases never achieved. For those who are still searching, I've found the perfect thought.

"Happiness should not be a means or an end or a goal of any kind. If you can not be happy, perhaps you haven't struggled enough. Who said lasting happiness was easy. And who said you can buy much happiness, you really can't find it in material things. "There has to be something about you that brings happiness out of yourself and out of the world. A man that is blind may be just as blind as someone with eyes." You may ask ourselves, where can we learn to see? I answer, "Don't take anything for granted; life is sacred and matters; our actions all have consequences. Give life everything you've got and even when people spit on your ambitions, keep moving, never give up and most of all, make your life have meaning, and give yourself reason to feel good about yourself by your integrity and good will.""

Happiness will begin to trickle into you life in little drops, till your eyes are just beaming with it, and goodness will follow you where ever you go.

Suggested Reading

Book: Meet Your Match
Author: Stephanie Fowers
Published By: Covenant

Jacqueline Childs and Britton Sergeant disagree on almost everything, and definitely on what kind of man catches a girl's eye. Jacqueline writes a love-advice column, and intends to write an article settling the matter once and for all. So, in defense of their genders, they make a wager involving unsuspecting players: Mr. Nice Guy and Mr. Jerk. Both will go after the biggest squirrelly girl in the singles ward-whoever catches the girl, wins.

All's fair in love and wagers.
... however, when Jacqueline's plan starts to work too well, she's afraid the worst will happen: she'll win the wager, but lose her chance for her own Mr. Nice Guy.

This was a really fun read. I've never experienced a singles ward, but reading this light-hearted story, it looks like it could be a lot of fun. If you want a book that will make you laugh and tug at your heart, you'll love Meet Your Match. Get your copy at your local bookstore or by logging on to or
