DAILY HAPPINESS TIP #36- Enjoy a Good Quote Regularly

“We read to know we are not alone.” -C.S. Lewis

Good quotations (or more informally, quotes) are nuggets of wisdom handed down from generations of great books, brilliant thinkers, prolific authors, respected leaders and other famous personalities. Because of their brevity, they are easily remembered and often used.

But no matter how often we encounter them, good quotations do not lose their impact to remind us of the messages, ideas or wisdom they carry. During trying times, they remind us that someone else has gone through our difficult situation and the experiences are important enough to warrant writing about, kept and transferred through generations.

Regularly reading and digesting a good quote, therefore, is a healthy practice that not only exercises the brain, but also promotes a sense of community, a connection with those who came before us…ancestors that guide us toward time-tested solutions to age-old problems.

Quotes should also be regarded as teasers, excerpts that would lead us to their original source, such as books, speeches, ancient cultures, etc. that are just waiting to be explored through reading. So tickle your imagination, feel a sense of belonging or even come up with answers to present day challenges, and be happy, motivated or inspired by human being's collective gems of wisdom.

“A capacity and taste for reading gives access to whatever has already been discovered by others.” – Abraham Lincoln
