There is no rule about what is happy and good; what suits one would not suit another. And the ways by which perfection is reached vary very much; the medicines necessary for our souls are very different from each other. Thus, God leads us by strange ways; we know He wills our happiness, but we neither know what our happiness is, nor the way.

John Henry Newman (1801-1890) English prelate, Catholic Cardinal, theologian
