The Happiness Factor

If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day, go fishing.
If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.
~Chinese Proverb
This would make a GREAT getting-to-know-you activity.  Before you unveil the real proverb, delete everything after the commas and see what your students are thinking about what might bring happiness into their world.  Then ask them to share and compare with a buddy.  Finally, show them the original.  Find out what they think of the proverb and ask them how they could apply the "help somebody" part to their own lives.
