    What is true happiness? With all the choices in life and the many necessary sacrifices we have to make to effect change, how does one become happy?

    At worst "true happiness" is an illusion. At best, it is a by-product of living our lives in accordance with our values, developing our talents, and seeking fulfillment and accomplishment.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    True happiness almost suggests an unobtainable permanency. There is no such thing. Happiness like anything else, good or bad, is fleeting. It arrives, it leaves, and it returns again only to leave once more. Enjoy it when it visits.
    To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity. Douglas Adams
