Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself in your way of thinking.
Happiness, not in another place but this place...not for another hour, but this hour.
Life becomes harder for us when we live for others, but it also becomes richer and happier.
Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.
If you deliberately set out to be less than you are capable, you'll be unhappy for the rest of your life.
Forget injuries, never forget kindnesses.
Those who are not looking for happiness are the most likely to find it, because those who are searching forget that the surest way to be happy is to seek happiness for others.
Seek not happiness too greedily, and be not fearful of unhappiness.
You don't have to be famous. You just have to make your mother and father proud of you.
Anything you're good at contributes to happiness.
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.
Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.
But happiness is no respecter of persons.
Do your little bit of good where you are; it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.
Happiness is a mystery like religion, and it should never be rationalized.
If you're not having fun, you're doing something wrong.
As a rock star, I have two instincts, I want to have fun, and I want to change the world. I have a chance to do both.
Happiness doesn't depend on any external conditions, it is governed by our mental attitude
Should not the giver be thankful that the receiver received? Is not giving a need? Is not receiving, mercy?
Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.
