Happiness for a reason is just another form of misery because the reason can be taken away from us at any time.
Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.
Manifest plainness, Embrace simplicity, Reduce selfishness, Have few desires.

But happiness is no respecter of persons.
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.
Seek not happiness too greedily, and be not fearful of unhappiness.
Happiness makes up in height for what it lacks in length.
If you can, help others; if you cannot do that, at least do not harm them.
Part of the happiness of life consists not in fighting battles, but in avoiding them. A masterly retreat is in itself a victory.
