Life becomes harder for us when we live for others, but it also becomes richer and happier.
Happiness is mental harmony; unhappiness is mental inharmony.
We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all that we need to make us happy is something to be enthusiastic about.
You don't have to be famous. You just have to make your mother and father proud of you.
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.
He who wishes to secure the good of others has already secured his own.
When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.
It isn't what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about.
I will not be afraid because I understand... And understanding is happiness.
Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.

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.
Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.
Do your little bit of good where you are; it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
Happiness depends upon ourselves.
A good head and good heart are always a formidable combination. But when you add to that a literate tongue or pen, then you have something very special.
Seek not happiness too greedily, and be not fearful of unhappiness.
