STOP AND THINK – Happiness, like a child, must be allowed to grow up. (Charles Langbridge Morgan, 20th century English-born playwright and novelist)

Morgan also wrote, “The art of living does not consist in preserving and clinging to a particular mood of happiness, but in allowing happiness to change its form without being disappointed by the change.” When we were a child, lots of silly things made us feel happy. As we matured, however, we gained a more mature understanding of what happiness is.

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me (1 Corinthians 13:11).
