Happy is he who causes a scandal
Everyone wants to be appreciated, so if you appreciate someone, don't keep it a secret.
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
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.
Forget injuries, never forget kindnesses.
Happiness is not achieved by the conscious pursuit of happiness; it is generally the by-product of other activities.

Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.
You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.
He who wishes to secure the good of others has already secured his own.
There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophies. My brain and my heart are my temples; my philosophy is kindness.
He whose face gives no light, shall never become a star.
