"Believe me, every man has his secret sorrows, which the world knows not; and oftentimes, we call a man cold when he is only sad."

This is very true.

No one in this world is fully happy. No one has everything in life. If a person is rich, he may not have health or he may be worried how to protect his wealth.

If a man is poor he will be worried about how to make both ends meet.

Perhaps the only people who are completely happy are those who are fully devoted to God. Then they are not bothered about being rich or poor, whether they have health or no health, whether they have house or not, wthether they have food or go hungry etc.

Great post!

Best wishes!

Hi Joseph,
I agree, to find full happiness is more often than not a by-product of another pursuit or as some would say, the fruit of character.
Surely full devotion to God will bring happiness, but even with the riches of his presence, there will be seasons of sorrow.
I always look forward to your insights,
many blessings,
