This carefully crafted ebook: "Cheerfulness As A Life Power (Unabridged)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.
"Grief, anxiety, and fear are great enemies of human life. A depressed, sour, melancholy soul, a life which has ceased to believe in its own sacredness, its own power, its own mission, a life which sinks into querulous egotism or vegetating aimlessness, has become crippled and useless. We should fight against every influence which tends to depress the mind, as we would against a temptation to crime."
Spread over seven chapters this book reminds us why is it important to look on the sunny side of things, to be cheerful about anything and everything.
