"All men have fears,but the brave put down their fears and go forward, sometimes to death, but always to victory."
"By fighting you never get enough, but by yielding you get more than you expected."

It isn't what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing..
..that makes you happy or unhappy.It is what you think about it.
