“Now the joy of Ammon was so great even that he was full; yea, he was swallowed up in the joy of his God, even to the exhausting of his strength; and he fell again to the earth. Now was not this exceeding joy? Behold, this is joy which none receiveth save it be the truly penitent and humble seeker of happiness.” – Alma 27: 17-18
“Recognize that enduring happiness comes from what you are, not from what you have.” – Richard G. Scott
