"I have learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions and not on our circumstances."
Martha Washington

This is so true in everyone's life, in ANY circumstance. Whatever happens to us will do either one of two things:

Makes me think of the passage that says "I have learned in whatever state I am - therewith to be content..."
Have a great day!
