Thinkers and philosophers such as Mahatma Gandhi have said much of value about life and happiness. Many of us wonder often what happiness is and how we can attain it. If we were taught as children that happiness is a state of mind, perhaps we´d be more adept at enjoying life later on. Here are some of Gandhi´s best quotes, explained for kids. Share them with your young ones, in the hopes that they will learn to appreciate his valuable words

  1. Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.If you think you should do your homework, tell your teacher you will do it and then actually do it and turn it in, you will feel good about yourself. When your thoughts, words and actions match, you are on the right track.
  1. When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won.When you feel sad, when you believe someone has been unfair to you, think back to the times when you were comforted by your mother’s love. Be good to others, no matter what happens.
  1. A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.If you think sad thoughts, you will feel more sad, if you think happy thoughts you will feel better. If you think you can do something, you empower yourself to be able to do it. What you think becomes real for you.
  1. Seek not greater wealth, but simpler pleasure; not higher fortune, but deeper felicity.Feeling satisfied with what you do and who you are is more important than owning things or having a lot of money.
  1. Satisfaction lies in the effort, not in the attainment. Full effort is full victory.When you practice for your basketball game and give your best, whether your team wins or  not doesn’t matter. The real victory is when you are applying your best effort all the time.
