I have been very happy, very rich, very beautiful much adulated, very famous and very unhappy
Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.
When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.
You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.
Kindness is the beginning of cruelty.
Happiness, not in another place but this place...not for another hour, but this hour.
Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.
We were together. I forget the rest.
Should not the giver be thankful that the receiver received? Is not giving a need? Is not receiving, mercy?
Those who are not looking for happiness are the most likely to find it, because those who are searching forget that the surest way to be happy is to seek happiness for others.
Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.
If you deliberately set out to be less than you are capable, you'll be unhappy for the rest of your life.
Happiness is an expression of the soul in considered actions.
Life becomes harder for us when we live for others, but it also becomes richer and happier.
If you can, help others; if you cannot do that, at least do not harm them.
Happiness can exist only in acceptance.
Do your little bit of good where you are; it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.
Happiness makes up in height for what it lacks in length.
There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophies. My brain and my heart are my temples; my philosophy is kindness.
Unless you make a daily effort to see the world as God sees it, you will never get beyond mere appearances.
Everyone wants to be appreciated, so if you appreciate someone, don't keep it a secret.
