Realize that true happiness lies within you. Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside. Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.

"Whatever it is, if it doesn't make you happy, walk away, give it away to someone else who wants it. Let it be their next dream; let it flee from you. Then you have room to grow, to allow magnificent things to fill the vacuum of those seemingly empty places. When you hold onto yesterday, when you hold onto dead and dying adventures, you have no room in your box for greatness."

QUOTES FOR CANADA DAY

I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.
John Diefenbaker (From the Canadian Bill of Rights, July 1, 1960)

Our hopes are high. Our faith in the people is great. Our courage is strong. And our dreams for this beautiful country will never die.
Pierre Elliott Trudeau

In a world darkened by ethnic conflicts that tear nations apart, Canada stands as a model of how people of different cultures can live and work together in peace, prosperity, and mutual respect.
Bill Clinton

There are no limits to the majestic future which lies before the mighty expanse of Canada with its virile, aspiring, cultured, and generous-hearted people.
Winston Churchill

WHY JESUS IS BETTER THAN SANTA CLAUS

Santa lives at the North Pole ...
JESUS is everywhere.

Santa rides in a sleigh ...
JESUS rides on the wind and walks on the water.

Santa comes but once a year.
JESUS is an ever present help.

Santa fills your stockings with goodies ...
JESUS supplies all your needs.

Santa comes down your chimney uninvited ...
JESUS stands at your door and knocks, and enters your heart.

You have to wait in line to see Santa ...
JESUS is as close as the mention of His name.

Santa lets you sit on his lap ...
JESUS lets you rest in His Arms.

Santa doesn't know your name, all he can say is
"Hi little boy or girl, what's your name?" ...
JESUS knew our name before we did.
Not only does He know our name,
He knows our history and future, and
He even knows our hearts & how many hairs are on our heads.

Santa has a belly like a bowl full of jelly ...
JESUS has a heart full of love, grace, mercy & forgiveness.

All Santa can offer is HO HO HO ...
JESUS says "Cast your cares on me for I care for you."

Santa's little helpers make toys ...
JESUS makes a new life, mends wounded hearts,
repairs broken homes and builds mansions.

Santa may make you chuckle but ...
JESUS gives you joy that is your strength.

While Santa puts gifts under your tree ...
JESUS became our gift and died on the tree,
For you & for me.

It's obvious there is really no comparison.
We need to remember WHO Christmas is all about.
We need to put CHRIST back in Christmas,
Jesus is still the reason for the season.

Yes, JESUS is better,
He is even better than Santa Claus.

Hello Ladies , I found this happiness quote from the Dalai Lama a happiness quotation from the Dalai Lama.
“We find that not only do altruistic actions bring about happiness but they also lessen our experience of suffering. Here I am not suggesting that the individual whose actions are motivated by the wish to bring others happiness necessarily meets with less misfortune than the one who does not. Sickness, old age, mishaps of one sort or another are the same for us all. But the sufferings which undermine our internal peace, anxiety, doubt, disappointment, these things are definitely less. In our concern for others, we worry less about ourselves. When we worry less about ourselves an experience of our own suffering is less intense.” -- Dalai Lama

I found this on a friends blog.


Recipe for Christmas Joy

1/2 Cup Hugs
4 Teaspoons Kisses
4 Cups Love
1 Cup Special Holiday Cheer
1/2 Cup Peace on Earth
3 Teaspoons Christmas Spirits
2 Cups Goodwill Toward Man
1 Sprig of Mistletoe
1 Medium-Size Bag of Christmas Snowflakes
(The Regular Kind Won't Do!)

Mix hugs, kisses, smiles and love until consistent.
Blend in holiday cheer, peace on earth, Christmas
spirits and good will toward men.
Use the mixture to fill a large, warm heart, where
it can be stored for a lifetime, (it never goes bad!)

Serve as desired under mistletoe, sprinkled liberally
with special Christmas Snowflakes. It is especially
good when accompanied by Christmas Carols and family
get-to-gethers.

Serve to one and all.

Best of all....No calories and lots of memories!

CHRISTMAS QUOTES

Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen. ~Author unknown, attributed to a 7-year-old named Bobby

You can never truly enjoy Christmas until you can look up into the Father's face and tell him you have received His Christmas gift.
~~John R. Rice

The best Christmas gift of all is the presence of a happy family all wrapped up with one another.

The only blind person at Christmastime is he who has not Christmas in his heart.
--Helen Keller

Peace on earth will come to stay,
When we live Christmas every day

CANADIAN QUOTES

It's going to be a great country when they finish unpacking it.
Andrew H. Malcom

Canada is like an old cow. The West feeds it. Ontario and Quebec milk it. And you can well imagine what it's doing in the Maritimes.
Former Saskatchewan premier Tommy Douglas

"What is a Canadian? A Canadian is a fellow wearing English tweeds, a Hong Kong shirt and Spanish shoes, who sips Brazilian coffee sweetened with Philippine sugar from a Bavarian cup while nibbling Swiss cheese, sitting at a Danish desk over a Persian rug, after coming home in a German car from an Italian movie... and then writes his Member of Parliament with a Japanese ballpoint pen on French paper, demanding that he do something about foreigners taking away our Canadian jobs."

We are tremendously proud of our culture, heritage and achievements and we will
continue to break new ground. I am proud to be a Canadian and I hope you are too.
Philip K. Lee

There are no limits to the majestic future which lies before the mighty expanse of
Canada with its verile, aspiring, cultures, and generous-hearted people.
Sit Winston Churchill

Our hopes are high. Our faith in the people is great. Our courage is strong. and our
dreams for this beautiful country will never die. Pierre Elliott Trudeau

SPRINGTIME QUOTES

Science has never drummed up quite as effective a tranquilizing agent as a sunny spring day. ~W. Earl Hall

If you've never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in spring bloom, maybe your soul has never been in bloom. ~Audra Foveo

You can't see Canada across lake Erie, but you know it's there. It's the same with spring. You have to have faith, especially in Cleveland. ~Paul Fleischman

A friend of mine today shared with me that Sharon Stone was recently quoted as saying "my butt's been sliding down the back of my legs for years." Gave me a good laugh!

Kind words are jewels that live in the heart and soul and remain as blessed memories years after they have been spoken Marvea Johnson

"Like a candle's glow on a dark night, happiness lights our hearts wherever we are with those we love".

"Discover the joy in everyday things...sunshine's dance on sparkling water, peaceful moments of rest, and a loving word spoken from the heart".

God gives every bird its food, but he does not throw it into the nest...JG Holland

"Children know where to find joy: in a dew covered daffodil, in the shapes of passing clouds, and in the laughter of a friend".

Some of my favorite love quotes:

When love is not madness, it is not love. ~Pedro Calderon de la Barca

I don't understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine's Day. When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon. ~Author Unknown

kisses are a better fate
than wisdom.
~e.e. cummings

Who, being loved, is poor? ~Oscar Wilde


And I found this one today:
If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular? ~Author Unknown
