I was reminded of one today when a question was posed about money & happiness in a blog I read.

"We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars."
Oscar Wilde

The point being - for me, at least, is that it doesn't matter where we are or what position we find ouselves, but rather where we choose to place our focus. :) Happiness, for the most part, is a choice.

"What is to give light must endure burning"

and a poem by anonymous:

"Ring the bells that you ring,
Forget your perfect offering,
There's a crack in everything...
That's how the light gets in."
