I think the thing to do is to enjoy the ride while you're on it.
Happiness: a good bank account, a good cook and a good digestion.
Part of the happiness of life consists not in fighting battles, but in avoiding them. A masterly retreat is in itself a victory.
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.
Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.
Happiness is a mystery like religion, and it should never be rationalized.
He whose face gives no light, shall never become a star.
Happiness is a virtue, not its reward.
No one has a right to consume happiness without producing it.
Money can't buy you happiness but it does bring you a more pleasant form of misery.
No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks.
Remember happiness doesn't depend on who you are or what you have; it depends solely upon what you think
A man is never as big as when he is on his knees to help a child.
Age does not make us childish, as some say; it finds us true children.
From there to here, from here to there, funny things are everywhere!
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.
A good head and good heart are always a formidable combination. But when you add to that a literate tongue or pen, then you have something very special.
Forget like a child any injury done by somebody immediately. Never keep it in the heart. It kindles hatred.
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.
Happiness for a reason is just another form of misery because the reason can be taken away from us at any time.
