You’ll never find a rainbow if you are looking down. (Charlie Chaplin, 20th century English comic actor)

Chaplain’s simple statement may be more profound than it seems at first glance. Have you noticed some people who always walk, looking at the pavement, and rarely look up? Are they like people who see the cup as half empty rather than half full? A little optimism may help you take life less seriously and find joy in what is all around you.

A happy heart makes the face cheerful. . . . All the days of the oppressed are wretched, but the cheerful heart has a continual feast. (Proverbs 15:13, 15)
