Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.
You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.

I think the thing to do is to enjoy the ride while you're on it.
Count your age by friends, not years. Count your life by smiles, not tears.
If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.

You see, antiquated ideas of kindness and generosity are simply bugs that must be programmed out of our world. And these cold, unfeeling machines will show us the way.
The purpose of government is to enable the people of a nation to live in safety and happiness. Government exists for the interests of the governed, not for the governors.
If you're not having fun, you're doing something wrong.
Forget injuries, never forget kindnesses.
It is very important to generate a good attitude, a good heart, as much as possible. From this, happiness in both the short term and the long term for both yourself and others will come.
Forget like a child any injury done by somebody immediately. Never keep it in the heart. It kindles hatred.

A happy life consists in tranquility of mind.
From there to here, from here to there, funny things are everywhere!
Happiness can exist only in acceptance.
Happiness is a virtue, not its reward.
For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.
Cheerfulness is that quality which enables one to make others happy. It takes its origin half in personal goodness, and half in the belief of the personal goodness of others.
Happiness is mental harmony; unhappiness is mental inharmony.
