Nine requisites for contented living:
*Health enough to make work a pleasure.
*Wealth enough to support your needs.
*Strength to battle with difficulties and overcome them.
*Grace enough to confess your sins and forsake them.
*Patience enough to toil until some good is accomplished.
*Charity enough to see some good in your neighbor.
*Love enough to move you to be useful and helpful to others.
*Faith enough to make real the things of God.
*Hope enough to remove all anxious fears concerning the future.

-Johann von Goethe

Take care
