The transitory and random quality of emotions (“Well, that’s just the way I feel about it

Anticipate the miraculous splendour of everyday wonder.

God is the highest good of the reasonable creature, and the enjoyment of him is the only happiness with which our souls can be satisfied. To go to heaven fully to enjoy God, is infinitely better than the most pleasant accommodations here. Fathers and mothers, husbands, wives, children, or the company of earthly friends, are but shadows. But the enjoyment of God is the substance. These are but scattered beams, but God is the sun. These are but streams, but God is the fountain. These are but drops, but God is the ocean.

I think that fame removes true happiness. Because when you are famous, people know you for who they think you are and when you are happy, it’s because people have met you and see you for who you really are. Of course, if you are not a great person, it’s better to be famous. But if you have greatness, it’s better to not be famous.
