To be happy you must have taken the measure of your powers, tasted the fruits of your passion, and learned your place in the world.
If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.

From there to here, from here to there, funny things are everywhere!
Leisure is being allowed to do nothing.
Happiness is nothing more than good health and a bad memory.

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.
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.
The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.
Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.
Remember happiness doesn't depend on who you are or what you have; it depends solely upon what you think
