Another great quote for 2005:

"To be happy we don't need beauty, but we must accept and like ourselves.

Instead of fame, we need optimism.

Rather than wealth, we need a purpose.

We don't have to have a special talent, but we need a job or activities we enjoy.

Instead of perfection, we need realism to help us accept our weaknesses and learn to manage them.

We don't need possessions but we must have loving relationships.

We need wisdom rather than intelligence, autonomy rather than conformity.

Happy people resist social pressure and exert personal control.

The things needed for happiness are all within our control, and we can work toward them"

- Andrew Williams, research psychologist, author, "How Do You Compare?"
