Contented Living

Contented Living thought
There are nine requisites for contented living:

  1. Health enough to make work a pleasure.
  2. Wealth enough to support your needs.
  3. Strength enough to battle with difficulties and forsake them.
  4. Grace enough to confess your sins and overcome them.
  5. Patience enough to toil until some good is accomplished.
  6. Charity enough to see some good in your neighbor.
  7. Love enough to move you to be useful and helpful to others.
  8. Faith enough to make real the things of God.
  9. Hope enough to remove all anxious fears concerning the future.

-Johann Wofgang von Goethe
