Happiness: a good bank account, a good cook and a good digestion.
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.
Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.
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.
If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
It is not God's will merely that we should be happy, but that we should make ourselves happy.
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 whose face gives no light, shall never become a star.
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.
I have been very happy, very rich, very beautiful much adulated, very famous and very unhappy
Happiness... it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.
The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.
Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.
He who wishes to secure the good of others has already secured his own.
We were together. I forget the rest.
Everyone wants to be appreciated, so if you appreciate someone, don't keep it a secret.
Happiness depends upon ourselves.
Others may know pleasure, but pleasure is not happiness. It has no more importance than a shadow following a man.
Leisure is being allowed to do nothing.
