"If we can attain satisfaction with what we have in our lives, it will bring us happiness and grace. In our present condition, if we're able to solve our inner problems and affirm life, we will be in harmony with our expectations. In any situation, we can be appeased and self-contained, and gratify ourselves with realistic desires. Whenever we make the best of whatever situation we find ourselves in, we are essentially living a gracious life."
