Today’s quote is about happiness.
I’ve always loved Groucho Marx’s wit and this quote from him sums up the Zen philosophy of remaining in the present in order to achieve awareness and happiness.
But sometimes I forget, and I get lost in the past or worry about things that have yet to happen, and then there are times I remember and things feel a little lighter and brighter again.
I think we all need to be reminded of this now and again:
‘I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.’
– Groucho Marx
