Happiness seems to require a modicum of external prosperity.
But happiness is no respecter of persons.
Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
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.
As a rock star, I have two instincts, I want to have fun, and I want to change the world. I have a chance to do both.
Happiness is an expression of the soul in considered actions.
Do your little bit of good where you are; it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.
Money can't buy you happiness but it does bring you a more pleasant form of misery.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.
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.
Count your age by friends, not years. Count your life by smiles, not tears.
Forget injuries, never forget kindnesses.
Forget like a child any injury done by somebody immediately. Never keep it in the heart. It kindles hatred.
A happy life consists in tranquility of mind.
Anything you're good at contributes to happiness.
Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.
The lonely one offers his hand too quickly to whomever he encounters.
Remember happiness doesn't depend on who you are or what you have; it depends solely upon what you think
Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself in your way of thinking.
Everyone wants to be appreciated, so if you appreciate someone, don't keep it a secret.
