Happiness is not something far away. It is to be found neither in fame nor in popularity. When you live with integrity, your hearts begin to fill with a happiness as vast as the universe. It’s about being true to yourself and starting from where you are. From there your happiness will expand and grow limitlessly.

  2. A ventriloquist visiting Australia walks into a small outback village and sees a local sitting on his porch patting his dog He figures he'll have a little fun, so he says to the Aussie:

    "Hey, mind if I talk to your dog?"
    Aussie: "The dog doesn't talk, stupid"
    Ventriloquist: "Hello dog, how's it going mate?"
    Dog: "Doin' all right."
    Aussie: (look of extreme shock)
    Ventriloquist: "Is this your owner?" (pointing at the villager)
    Dog: "Yep"
    Ventriloquist: "How does he treat you?"
    Dog: "Real good. He walks me twice a day, feeds me great food and takes me to the lake once a week to play. "
    Aussie: (look of utter disbelief)
    Ventriloquist: "Mind if I talk to your horse? "
    Aussie: "Uh, the horse doesn't talk either. . . . I think. "
    Ventriloquist: "Hey horse, how's it going? "
    Horse: "Cool"
    Aussie: (absolutely dumbfounded, as most Aussies look)
    Ventriloquist: "Is this your owner?" (pointing at the villager)
    Horse: "Yep"
    Ventriloquist: How does he treat you?
    Horse: "Pretty good, thanks for asking. He rides me regularly, brushes me down often and keeps me in the barn to protect me from the elements.
    Aussie: (total look of amazement)
    Ventriloquist: "Mind if I talk to your sheep?"
    Aussie: (in a panic) "The sheep's a liar."
