    Richness is not earning more, spending more, or saving more. Richness is when we need NO MORE = Vivekananda

    Richness is not in what we have but we enjoy. If we have good friends that is a treasured gift. Yesterday I had gone for my office friend's daughter's marriage. Though I was not fully well but still I went because I can meet all my office friends. We had a nice time together. We could not have dinner as it was served late but meeting my friends and talking to them only made me feel full. We just had some cutlets and juice. I had gone with an office friend of mine.

    Richness is in thinking others children as our children. Children need love and affection and whoever gives them in abundance they cling to them. They need our love in their childhood , once they are grown they become independent

    Richness is in spending time with elders atleast an hour or two which will make them happy. Old age is the time when they feel lonely and whoever spends sometime with them and give them the love and affection they feel on the top of the world.

    Richness is in being happy and making others happy. Same way instead of expecting fbs from othrs if we give fbs we can bring a smile on everyone's face with our loving messages.

    He who has much is not rich but he who gives is more rich because there is a saying Give to the world the best you have and the best will come back to you

    Riches are not from abundance of worldly goods, but from a contented mind.

    Got reminded of a quote that goes like, 'Not what we have, but what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance (richness).'

    Everytime I read your post, I feel I am getting richer and richer!

    Thank you for making me feel rich!

    Very rightly said Vijima. Loved Swami Vivekananda's quote about the one who is happy and contented with what
    he has being truly rich. Enjoyed reading your take on the quotes.

    @Aspire: Hearty congratulations to the new dad to be. :-D
