Just Because I Like It

Tracy, of Hey Harriet, wrote a post today and included this quote:

“Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”
~ Buddhist quote

I just like it so very much I wanted to share it. Her post is a very happy one.

Very nice saying.
I want to thank you for sending your readers to Casdok's amazing blog. I have been reading and learning from her past entries. Autism is a new world for me, and I am amazed by Casdok's strength and how articulate she is writing from the point of view of a mother.
So thank you, Bobbie.

You are such a sweetie Bobbie! Glad you enjoyed the happy post. And yes, it is a great quote. I love many Buddhist quotes because they're simple and make perfect sense :)

it is a beautiful quote

in a way your timing is perfect to me, I have been thinking (and ranting) about sharing and having vs. not having

Daryl said...

So true. Wouldnt it be nice if everyone shared a smile, a nod, an acknowledgement every day ..

I had a friend a while back that told me happiness is something you bring with you. Unfortunately, I have a melancholic nature but I appreciate your sharing happiness with me. At one point in my life I took anti-depressant medications so I understand what happiness is. I used to think my depression was caused because I saw the pathology of mankind. But maybe it's just neurotransmitters.
