I first stumbled across this quote back when I was a preteen, in an anthology of teen writers and philosophers (remember Chicken Soup for the Soul series? Yeah, those were the bomb back then, in the late-90s/early 2000s. Good times). In any case, this quote is pulled from a prose piece by Max Ehrmann, titled “Desiderata.” Not only is the piece beautifully written, but its message is also uplifting and motivational- gives someone a sense of hope to strive and obtain that happiness in the world, no matter what.
…and to this day, I still hold on tightly to that idea. 🙂
