There is no value in life except what you choose to place upon it, and no happiness in any place except what you bring to it yourself.”   —   Lin Yutang

(Don’t allow yourself to be too driven by degrees and titles and things like net worth.  Status does not equate with happiness.  The lasting pleasures in life cannot be purchased.  They can only be attained by investing yourself with others.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(I can dig it!  The second part of this quotation is really humorous, and it drives home the point.  “For that reason, I am always scared and ill at ease when I enter a house in which there are no ash trays.”  Marvelous!   This was a tough one.  No 3 letter words, only one 2 letter words and one 1 letter word.  My first inkling had the second and third words as:  IS A, and then I thought HATE was HAVE.  But, I was able to straighten everything out.  Be well and do good, friends!)   —   YUR

PS.  I realize that Hatsuhana was Japanese, while Lin Yutang was Chinese, but I found this while looking up penance, to reply to Lesley’s comment, and I just couldn’t resist it.  It’s very cool!  Dig it!   —   YUR
