I have been very happy, very rich, very beautiful much adulated, very famous and very unhappy
Happiness: a good bank account, a good cook and a good digestion.
Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.
It is not God's will merely that we should be happy, but that we should make ourselves happy.
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.
You don't have to be famous. You just have to make your mother and father proud of you.
Should not the giver be thankful that the receiver received? Is not giving a need? Is not receiving, mercy?
If you can, help others; if you cannot do that, at least do not harm them.
Forget injuries, never forget kindnesses.
Be joyful because it is humanly possible.
Anything you're good at contributes to happiness.
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
If you deliberately set out to be less than you are capable, you'll be unhappy for the rest of your life.
The intention that man should be happy is not in the plan of Creation.
It is the task of a good man to help those in misfortune.
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.
Happiness for a reason is just another form of misery because the reason can be taken away from us at any time.
Unless you make a daily effort to see the world as God sees it, you will never get beyond mere appearances.
Happiness makes up in height for what it lacks in length.
True happiness...is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.
The lonely one offers his hand too quickly to whomever he encounters.
