The purpose of our lives is to be happy.
Man's real life is happy, chiefly because he is ever expecting that it soon will be so.
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.
Others may know pleasure, but pleasure is not happiness. It has no more importance than a shadow following a man.
Happiness, not in another place but this place...not for another hour, but this hour.
Unless you make a daily effort to see the world as God sees it, you will never get beyond mere appearances.
Part of the happiness of life consists not in fighting battles, but in avoiding them. A masterly retreat is in itself a victory.
Be joyful because it is humanly possible.
Morality is not properly the doctrine of how we may make ourselves happy, but how we may make ourselves worthy of happiness.
It is not God's will merely that we should be happy, but that we should make ourselves happy.
Be kind whenever possible.It is always possible.
Age does not make us childish, as some say; it finds us true children.
True happiness...is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.
Beauty is the promise of happiness.
I never admired another's fortune so much that I became dissatisfied with my own.
Count your age by friends, not years. Count your life by smiles, not tears.
Recommend to your children virtues, that alone can make them happy, not gold.
Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.
Forget injuries, never forget kindnesses.
The intention that man should be happy is not in the plan of Creation.
Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.
