Happy Now

happy

This book by Brian Browne Walker shows us why so many people are unhappy and why there is an increase in the number of people suffering from depression despite the fact that life is good and wonderful. He attempts to impart some simple practices that are proven to profoundly increase personal happiness, supported by delightful quotations from well-known figures like Bob Marley, Mark Twain, Lao Tzu, Gandhi, the Dalai Lama, Muhammad Ali and Jack Nicholson:

  • Great is the human who has not lost his childlike heart. (Mencius)
  • We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when adults are afraid of the light. (Plato)
  • The main thing is that you hear life’s music ecerywhere. Most people hear only its dissonances. (Theodor Fontane)
  • Good humour is the best article of dress one can wear in society. (Wm. Makepeace Thackeray)
  • We are all happy if only we knew it. (Dostoevsky)
  • It takes a joyful sound to make de world go round. (Bob Marley)
  • The sun is always shining in someplace. (Muhammad Ali)
  • Live as you will wish to have lived when you are dying. (Christian Gellart)
  • The test of a man’s or woman’s breeding is how they behave in a quarrel. (George Bernard Shaw)
