The purpose of our lives is to be happy.
Remember happiness doesn't depend on who you are or what you have; it depends solely upon what you think
Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.
If you deliberately set out to be less than you are capable, you'll be unhappy for the rest of your life.
He whose face gives no light, shall never become a star.
Happiness... it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.
No one has a right to consume happiness without producing it.
Different men seek ... happiness in different ways and by different means.
Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.
The intention that man should be happy is not in the plan of Creation.
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.
Should not the giver be thankful that the receiver received? Is not giving a need? Is not receiving, mercy?
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.
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.
Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.
To be happy, we must not be too concerned with others.
Happiness depends upon ourselves.
Forget like a child any injury done by somebody immediately. Never keep it in the heart. It kindles hatred.
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.
Be joyful because it is humanly possible.
The lonely one offers his hand too quickly to whomever he encounters.
