I have held many things in my hand and I have lost them all. But whatever I have placed in God's hands, that I still posses.

You buy furniture. You tell yourself, this is the last sofa I will ever need in my life. Buy the sofa, then for a couple years you’re satisfied that no matter what goes wrong, at least you’ve got your sofa issue handled. Then the right set of dishes. Then the perfect bed. The drapes. The rug. Then you’re trapped in your lovely nest, and the things you used to own, now they own you.

Happiness resides not in possessions and not in gold, the feeling of happiness dwells in the soul.
