Happiness & Contentment
Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.
The hope of the righteous shall be gladness: but the expectation of the wicked shall perish.
Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil: but to the counsellors of peace is joy.
Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad.
The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul: but it is abomination to fools to depart from evil.
The heart knoweth his own bitterness; and a stranger doth not intermeddle with his joy.
Even in laughter the heart is sorrowful; and the end of that mirth is heaviness.

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.
Delight is not seemly for a fool; much less for a servant to have rule over princes.

The father of the righteous shall greatly rejoice: and he that begetteth a wise child shall have joy of him. Thy father and thy mother shall be glad, and she that bare thee shall rejoice.
Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth: Lest the LORD see it, and it displease him, and he turn away his wrath from him.
