The wise grows it under his feet.
It’s necessary for you to know
that the roots of personal happiness are within you,
You must be conscious
of the fact that nothing you could see and touch
can grow it,
and that personal happiness is a decision to make nothing
except the ability to wake up;
For every waking moment is a gift that can’t be bought.
“The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance; the wise grows it under his feet.”
— James Oppenheim.
