The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.

Nothing that goes on in anyone else’s mind can harm you.

Marcus Aurelius was Roman emperor from 161 to 180.  His reign was near the end of the Pax Romana, an era of peace and stability.

I’m fulfilled in what I do.  I never thought that a lot of money or fine clothes–the finer things of life–would make you happy.  My concept of happiness is to be filled in a spiritual sense.

From Psalm 66:10-12:  “For you, O God, have tested us; you have tried us as silver is tried.  You brought us into the net; you laid burdens on our backs; you let people ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water; yet you have brought us out to a spacious place.”
