:QUOTES: on HAPPINESS according to March, Nietzsche, & Washington

FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE (1844-1900; scholar, writer, philosopher):
“There is one thing one has to have: either a soul that is cheerful by nature, or a soul made cheerful by work, love, art, and knowledge.”

MARTHA WASHINGTON (1731-1802; First Lady of the United States):
“I've learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions and not on our circumstances.”

PEYTON C. MARCH (1864-1955; General, US Army):
“There is a wonderful mythical law of nature that the three things we crave most in life—happiness, freedom, and peace of mind—are always attained by giving them to someone else.”
