Anything you're good at contributes to happiness.
He whose face gives no light, shall never become a star.
He who wishes to secure the good of others has already secured his own.
Happiness is a virtue, not its reward.
Age does not make us childish, as some say; it finds us true children.
I think the thing to do is to enjoy the ride while you're on it.
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.
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.
Beauty is the promise of happiness.
Happiness for a reason is just another form of misery because the reason can be taken away from us at any time.

It is necessary to help others, not only in our prayers, but in our daily lives. If we find we cannot help others, the least we can do is to desist from harming them.
Others may know pleasure, but pleasure is not happiness. It has no more importance than a shadow following a man.
Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.
If you can, help others; if you cannot do that, at least do not harm them.
Those who are not looking for happiness are the most likely to find it, because those who are searching forget that the surest way to be happy is to seek happiness for others.
Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.
Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.
Part of the happiness of life consists not in fighting battles, but in avoiding them. A masterly retreat is in itself a victory.
Everyone wants to be appreciated, so if you appreciate someone, don't keep it a secret.
When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.
