One Definition Of Wisdom By Zig Zigler

There are sources of happiness that are quite independent of money.  A millionaire does not enjoy a book more than a poor man.  Plain food tastes as good to a worker who has earned his dinner as do the choicest delicacies to the man whose appetite is jaded from an unnatural diet.  The outdoors is as beautiful to a factory girl as to the wife of a factory owner, and the member of the sand lot ball team gets as much fun out of his sport as does a polo player. A lot was said in just a few words, wasn't it?  
It's one more way of saying that things that really count are available to virtually all of us in this great land of ours.  Most of it boils down to a matter of choice.  The poor man can go to the library and have access to the greatest books of all time, written by men and women who really have "been there and done that," in the vernacular of the day.  In this way we can enjoy vicariously the experiences, share the wisdom, enjoy the beauty, join in the laughter and share all of the emotional rewards that go with being well-read and creative.  by Zig Zigler
We can also sit in the quietness of our home or yard and reflect on life and the beauty of the sunset.   Will Rogers said that most of us can be about as happy as we make up our minds to be.  Turning off the television and visiting with a neighbor over the fence or inviting them into our living room for a cup of coffee, a game of checkers or chess, or simply to pop some popcorn or grill a hot dog will help make that happiness a reality.
