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.
Others may know pleasure, but pleasure is not happiness. It has no more importance than a shadow following a man.
But happiness is no respecter of persons.
If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.

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.

Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.
