Happiness makes up in height for what it lacks in length.
A happy life consists in tranquility of mind.
Count your age by friends, not years. Count your life by smiles, not tears.
Knowledge of what is possible is the beginning of happiness.
I have been very happy, very rich, very beautiful much adulated, very famous and very unhappy
Seek not happiness too greedily, and be not fearful of unhappiness.
Others may know pleasure, but pleasure is not happiness. It has no more importance than a shadow following a man.
Morality is not properly the doctrine of how we may make ourselves happy, but how we may make ourselves worthy of happiness.
We were together. I forget the rest.
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.
The intention that man should be happy is not in the plan of Creation.
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.
The two enemies of human happiness are pain and boredom.
Happiness depends upon ourselves.
The purpose of government is to enable the people of a nation to live in safety and happiness. Government exists for the interests of the governed, not for the governors.
The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.
It is the task of a good man to help those in misfortune.
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
It is necessary to help others, not only in our prayers, but in our daily lives. If we find we cannot help others, the least we can do is to desist from harming them.
It is of practical value to learn to like yourself. Since you must spend so much time with yourself you might as well get some satisfaction out of the relationship.
Happiness: a good bank account, a good cook and a good digestion.
