One of the great secrets of happiness is to think of happy things. There were many unhappy things in [ancient] Philippi, things false, dishonorable, unjust, impure, hideous and of very bad report; the air of Philippi was darkened by these things.  The Christians of that town might easily have had their lives stained by continually letting their thoughts dwell on what they could not help seeing and hearing and feeling, what evil they must often have met and fought in their striving together for the faith of the gospel.
