How true....what a fantastic quote MG! It is nice to be reminded that happiness is not something that can he chased but rather than something that arrives.

To me this is all about trying to take control: if you try to take control you can't: If you quietly go about your business, "turn your attention to other things"... then the thing you are chasing will just come to you. Amazing. This guy knew something about the way we humans operate! Thanx for the quote
