Emerson writes: “And so of cheerfulness, or a good temper, the more it is spent, the more of it remains. Emerson also said that our power dwells with cheerfulness; hope puts us in a positive working mood.
Cheerfulness is not the same as frivolousness. Cheerfulness is born of a fighting spirit. Frivolousness is the reverse and more closely related to escape. So let us be cheerful in face of our bad days, our own adversities and moments simply beyond us. Without cheerfulness there is no strength. Let us strive to advance still more brightly and cheerfully.
Peace and Love, Jim
