Happiness is the settling of the soul into its most appropriate spot.
Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.
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.
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
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.
It is of practical value to learn to like yourself. Since you must spend so much time with yourself you might as well get some satisfaction out of the relationship.
When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.

God is a community of persons and He has created you in His image, not as an isolated individual, but as a person whom He has invited to a communal life with Himself and with the whole human family.

Others may know pleasure, but pleasure is not happiness. It has no more importance than a shadow following a man.
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.
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 a mystery like religion, and it should never be rationalized.
The intention that man should be happy is not in the plan of Creation.
Happiness depends upon ourselves.
Whether one believes in a religion or not, and whether one believes in rebirth or not, there isn't anyone who doesn't appreciate kindness and compassion.
Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself in your way of thinking.
Be joyful because it is humanly possible.
It is not God's will merely that we should be happy, but that we should make ourselves happy.
No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks.
