Laura Ingalls Wilder

The Little House books are stories of long ago. The way we live and your schools are much different now, so many changes have made living and learning easier. But the real things haven’t changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.

George MacDonald

Whoever is diligent will soon be cheerful…

Philip Neri

Cheerfulness strengthens the heart and makes us persevere in a good life.

Edwin Percy Whipple

Cheerfulness in most people is the rich and satisfying result of strenuous discipline.

Catherine Beecher

Obedience must be exact, prompt and cheerful.

B.C. Forbes

Cheerfulness is among the most laudable virtues. It gains you the good will and friendship of others. It blesses those who practice it and those upon whom it is bestowed.

Leonardo da Vinci

I love those who can smile in trouble…

Mark Twain

The best way to cheer yourself is to try to cheer someone else up.

William Arthur Ward

Every person has the power to make others happy. Some do it simply by entering a room others by leaving the room. Some individuals leave trails of gloom; others, trails of joy. Some leave trails of hate and bitterness; others, trails of love and harmony. Some leave trails of cynicism and pessimism; others trails of faith and optimism. Some leave trails of criticism and resignation; others trails of gratitude and hope. What kind of trails do you leave?

Martha Washington

I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances.

G.K. Chesterton

Hope is the power of being cheerful in circumstances that we know to be desperate.

John Bosco

Be cheerful, but let your cheerfulness be genuine, stemming from a conscience free from sin.
