Emily Dickinson - Such is the Force of Happiness --

Such is the Force of Happiness --
The Least -- can lift a Ton
Assisted by its stimulus --

Who Misery -- sustain --
No Sinew can afford --
The Cargo of Themselves --
Too infinite for Consciousness'
Slow capabilities.

Such is the force of happiness-meaning

True happiness comes from serving others where mighty work is done. The egocentric person carries a burden that slows us and strains us. When we get over ourselves we free ourselves to meet our potential.

Bruce Knight from United States
