Count your age by friends, not years. Count your life by smiles, not tears.
Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.
The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.
It is the task of a good man to help those in misfortune.
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.
My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.
Life becomes harder for us when we live for others, but it also becomes richer and happier.
Morality is not properly the doctrine of how we may make ourselves happy, but how we may make ourselves worthy of happiness.
The intention that man should be happy is not in the plan of Creation.
Happiness, not in another place but this place...not for another hour, but this hour.
When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.
But happiness is no respecter of persons.
You see, antiquated ideas of kindness and generosity are simply bugs that must be programmed out of our world. And these cold, unfeeling machines will show us the way.
To be happy, we must not be too concerned with others.
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.
Be joyful because it is humanly possible.
Others may know pleasure, but pleasure is not happiness. It has no more importance than a shadow following a man.
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.
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 is mental harmony; unhappiness is mental inharmony.
Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.
