Much certainty of the happiness and purity of our lives depends on our making a wise choice of our companions and friends.
by John Lubbock
How often do you see your friends?
Do you feel they have a strong influence to your life?
What do you give them in return as a friend or has it ever crossed your mind you have something to give?
Fern Cotton’s book Happiness gives us much insight on how to find your joyful moment in your daily life, through friends, through companions. Have a read and let me know what do you think?

“Do you think I can stay to become nothing to you? Do you think I am an automaton?—a machine without feelings? and can bear to have my morsel of bread snatched from my lips, and my drop of living water dashed from my cup? Do you think, because I am poor, obscure, plain, and little, I am soulless and heartless? You think wrong!—I have as much soul as you,—and full as much heart! And if God had gifted me with some beauty and much wealth, I should have made it as hard for you to leave me, as it is now for me to leave you. I am not talking to you now through the medium of custom, conventionalities, nor even of mortal flesh;—it is my spirit that addresses your spirit; just as if both had passed through the grave, and we stood at God’s feet, equal,—as we are!”
“Every good, true, vigorous feeling I have gathers impulsively round him. I know I must conceal my sentiments: I must smother hope; I must remember that he cannot care much for me. For when I say that I am of his kind, I do not mean that I have his force to influence, and his spell to attract; I mean only that I have certain tastes and feelings in common with him. I must, then, repeat continually that we are for ever sundered:—and yet, while I breathe and think, I must love him.”” from “Jane Eyre” by Charlotte Brontë, F. H. (Frederick Henry) Townsend
