"The grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for," wrote Joseph Addison. Is there more to life or is this it? Is this all there is to the essence of life. Then should one go on or is there more hope in life then this. Should we look for more things or is this all there is to live for.

People need something to do. There is always something to do. As a person grows older, they think to themselves that there is nothing to do in life, when there is. If people had nothing to do in life then they would sit there and rot.

To love is to live. Without love is to be empty. It's like it could be here today and gone tomorrow. So cherish the love you have like a priceless item, because without love, without caring for someone then what is there to live for.

The world would be cold if there was no love in it.

To hope for something makes people strive. It encourages people to make the world a better place. As people get up everyday they strive to go to work or school. Even though it's a drag. If people have nothing to strive for then the world might as well not exist.

As we go threw our lives we shall be thankful for the dreams and loves that was given to us. We shall be for filled with the wisdom that was past on to us. As we grew older we realize that there is more to life then the little worlds we live in today.
