A happy life is not built up of tours abroad

and pleasant holidays,

but of little clumps of violets noticed by the roadside,

hidden away almost so that only those can see them

who have God’s peace and love in their hearts;

in one long continuous chain of little joys,

little whispers from the spiritual world,

and little gleams of sunshine on our daily work.
