Happiness depends upon ourselves.
Happiness: a good bank account, a good cook and a good digestion.
There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophies. My brain and my heart are my temples; my philosophy is kindness.
Leisure is being allowed to do nothing.
Happiness for a reason is just another form of misery because the reason can be taken away from us at any time.
The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.
Recommend to your children virtues, that alone can make them happy, not gold.
Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.
To be happy, we must not be too concerned with others.
Seek not happiness too greedily, and be not fearful of unhappiness.
Should not the giver be thankful that the receiver received? Is not giving a need? Is not receiving, mercy?
If you can, help others; if you cannot do that, at least do not harm them.
He whose face gives no light, shall never become a star.
If you're not having fun, you're doing something wrong.
Happiness... it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.
You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.
Count your age by friends, not years. Count your life by smiles, not tears.
But happiness is no respecter of persons.
It is necessary to help others, not only in our prayers, but in our daily lives. If we find we cannot help others, the least we can do is to desist from harming them.
Life becomes harder for us when we live for others, but it also becomes richer and happier.
Happiness makes up in height for what it lacks in length.
