I have been very happy, very rich, very beautiful much adulated, very famous and very unhappy
Happiness can exist only in acceptance.
Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself in your way of thinking.
Count your age by friends, not years. Count your life by smiles, not tears.
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Part of the happiness of life consists not in fighting battles, but in avoiding them. A masterly retreat is in itself a victory.
Leisure is being allowed to do nothing.
Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.
The purpose of our lives is to be happy.
I think the thing to do is to enjoy the ride while you're on it.
Happiness is mental harmony; unhappiness is mental inharmony.
You don't have to be famous. You just have to make your mother and father proud of you.
The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.
All who would win joy, must share it; happiness was born a twin.
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.
Happiness is a virtue, not its reward.
It is not God's will merely that we should be happy, but that we should make ourselves happy.
Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.
Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.
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.
For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.
