On happiness, harmony & joy.

I received one slightly different sort of piece from my good friend Nathan who is the author behind this blog:

Please visit his site and he will blew you away with his magical talent and captivate you with his words. At least I am enthralled, and I deeply appreciate you Nathan and your friendship, I am one of your fan you know.

Thank you.

Well, I hope more of you out there like these to quotations well as me. I love them actually. I think both of them qualify under both -happiness- harmony & joy.


The rules for this “chain-letter” are quite simple:

1. Thank the selector

2. Post two quotations for the dedicated “Topic of the Day” (in this case, “happiness”)

3. Select three bloggers to take part in “3-2-1 Quote Me!”


The first quotation I would like to share is my absolutely favorite:

«The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched they must be felt with the heart»

-Helen Keller-

These words got my soul home. When I first read these words, I started crying. It was at a store and I sat down next to this sign that these words were on.

My dad said, «You can’t sit here crying my girl,» but I didn’t care. Because the feeling in my heart and mind is inexplicable, but I knew my soul loved these words and still does.

This quote is to me «harmony in a human being.

To be in touch with yourself, all of yourself.

Body, mind, heart, soul and spirit.

And happiness, because if you think about positive thoughts and let the positive grow within you can feel happiness.


The second quotation I would like to share it’s one I’ve been fond of in recent years:

«Today you can live so that someone tonight is happy that you are»


Unfortunately, I do not find out who is behind these words. If anyone knows, I appreciate knowing it.

These words are on a sign I have at home. I bought it for some year ago when I got sick.

I was at my «darkest place»in life and I should not mention more about it, but this sign was like «talking» to me, and I just had to go to read what was written on it.

I thought those words I should read every day and hide in my heart. I will take them forward and and tell it aloud to myself when the «dark thoughts» come in my mind.

I love these words, because to me, they are magical in a way maybe only I understand.

These words are like happiness, harmoni & joy too me, as I interpret them.


OK, now I have talked enough and again written from the depths of my soul and my heart. So I have to stop myself.

I don’t know if I’ve done it right, but it also goes well that too, because two quotes have become.

Thank you so much for this differently posts. I really enjoy it.

Nathan: I am sorry it took so long time before I got written and posted it.


My three bloggers is:

  1. Lillian! This is absolutely breath taking. I almost cried reading both of these quotations! I am one of your biggest fans! Also your artwork is stunning as usual!
    «And happiness, because if you think about positive thoughts and let the positive grow within you can feel happiness.» Isn’t that so true?? And Helen Keller had such a hard life, I would imagine she would know a lot about happiness.
    Thank you for sharing this, my dear friend! ❤ ❤ ❤

These quotes are so poignant actually and it’s right, all the beautiful things are felt with the heart, I remember also a saying that we close our eyes when we pray, cry, kiss, dream because beautiful things are felt with the heart ❤️ and second quote is really moving along with your experience and what you went through, I’m sure it was a sign and a great one 👌

  4. «The most beautiful things in the world
    cannot be seen or even touched they must be felt with the heart»

    -Helen Keller-

    Smiles my Friend Wonderful
    New Design for Your Website
    as i quote your quotes here as i love
    to riff off of Aphorisms and meaningful
    Words other Folks have said perhaps
    take it in an entirely new direction now as
    Words are always Words to build upon for
    more Light to come in to our Human Worlds
    Smiles my Friend as Beautiful as my Wife is
    i feel her Loving Presence before i see her Beauty
    when i walk into my Home.. smiles my Friend no Beauty
    Queens without Souls for me.. only those who reach out
    and truly touch hearts are Truly Beautiful To me.. hehe yes..
    some times at the Dance Hall they do anything but that… but
    True not
    all Humans
    Evolve the Same
    as Souls so that is
    okay too.. as we may
    Help them along the way
    to rise up a bit from below too..
    smiles my Friend it is more the smiles
    we bring others than the smiles they bring
    us that they often remember.. smiles my friend
    i can’t live just that way.. i could never receive
    without giving
    back at
    for light
    to grow it must
    do more than receive..:)
