Courage and cheerfulness will not only carry you over the rough places in life, but will enable you to bring comfort and help to the weak-hearted and will console you in the sad hours.
Cheerfulness is a friend to grace; it puts the heart in time to praise God, and so honors religion by proclaiming to the world that we serve a good master. Be serious, yet cheerful. Rejoice in the Lord always.

Mirth, and even cheerfulness, when employed as remedies in low spirits, are like hot water to a frozen limb.
Cheerfulness greases the axles of the world.
