Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself in your way of thinking.
Happiness depends upon ourselves.
It is of practical value to learn to like yourself. Since you must spend so much time with yourself you might as well get some satisfaction out of the relationship.
Happiness... it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.
Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.
There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophies. My brain and my heart are my temples; my philosophy is kindness.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.
Happiness makes up in height for what it lacks in length.
Happy is he who causes a scandal
You don't have to be famous. You just have to make your mother and father proud of you.
Remember happiness doesn't depend on who you are or what you have; it depends solely upon what you think
Cheerfulness is that quality which enables one to make others happy. It takes its origin half in personal goodness, and half in the belief of the personal goodness of others.
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Money can't buy you happiness but it does bring you a more pleasant form of misery.
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 deliberately set out to be less than you are capable, you'll be unhappy for the rest of your life.
Happiness is not achieved by the conscious pursuit of happiness; it is generally the by-product of other activities.
Unless you make a daily effort to see the world as God sees it, you will never get beyond mere appearances.
Happiness, not in another place but this place...not for another hour, but this hour.
You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.
