Happiness seems to require a modicum of external prosperity.
He who wishes to secure the good of others has already secured his own.
Happiness can exist only in acceptance.
There is no path to happiness: happiness is the path.
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.
Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.
Happiness doesn't depend on any external conditions, it is governed by our mental attitude
Happiness is not achieved by the conscious pursuit of happiness; it is generally the by-product of other activities.
Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.
Happiness... it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.
Be joyful because it is humanly possible.
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, not in another place but this place...not for another hour, but this hour.
Those who are not looking for happiness are the most likely to find it, because those who are searching forget that the surest way to be happy is to seek happiness for others.
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.
Seek not happiness too greedily, and be not fearful of unhappiness.
No one has a right to consume happiness without producing it.
Happiness is an expression of the soul in considered actions.
True happiness...is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.
Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.
Man's real life is happy, chiefly because he is ever expecting that it soon will be so.
