“The brain of an irritable person is overcrowded with blood and that of itself is a cause of disease. It’s most important, then, that we cultivate happy dispositions; dispositions which make others comfortable; dispositions which laugh at slight troubles and accept bravely and without murmurings the greater ones; dispositions which lead us to accept life as it is, and enable us to strive to better our conditions rather than to bemoan our fates.”
