happiness is a journey

Happiness Is A Journey... Father Alfred D'Souza

For a long time is seemed to me that life was about to begin
-- real life.

But there was always some obstacle in the way,
something to be gotten through first,
some unfinished business,
time still to be served,
a debt to be paid.
At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.
This perspective has helped me to see there is no way to happiness.
Happiness is the way.
So treasure every moment you have
and remember that time waits for no one.
Happiness is a journey, not a destination.

GREAT quote! Don't know who he was, but that is some serious wisdom!
Also attributed to him sometimes is:

Happiness is a journey, not a destination.
Dance as though no one is watching you.
Love as though you have never been hurt before.
Sing as though no one can hear you.
Live as though heaven is on earth.
