Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.
To be happy, we must not be too concerned with others.
The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.
Happiness is a virtue, not its reward.
A man is never as big as when he is on his knees to help a child.
The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.
Cheerfulness is that quality which enables one to make others happy. It takes its origin half in personal goodness, and half in the belief of the personal goodness of others.
Happiness doesn't depend on any external conditions, it is governed by our mental attitude
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.
Part of the happiness of life consists not in fighting battles, but in avoiding them. A masterly retreat is in itself a victory.
You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.
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.
He who wishes to secure the good of others has already secured his own.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.
My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.
Happiness for a reason is just another form of misery because the reason can be taken away from us at any time.
The lonely one offers his hand too quickly to whomever he encounters.
Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.
Recommend to your children virtues, that alone can make them happy, not gold.
Learn to value yourself, which means: fight for your happiness.
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.
