All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsion, habit, reason, passion, and desire.
– AristotleÂ Â Â
“Take time to work – it is the price of success. Take time to think – it is the source of power. Take time to play – it is the secret of perpetual youth. Take time to read – it is the fountain of wisdom. Take time to be friendly – it is the road to happiness. Take time to love and be loved – it is the nourishment of the soul. Take time to share – it is too short a life to be selfish. Take time to laugh – it is the music of the heart. Take time to dream – it is hitching your wagon to a star.”
The grand essentials of happiness are: something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.

It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.
