Happiness... it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.
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 is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.
The first requisite for the happiness of the people is the abolition of religion
To be happy you must have taken the measure of your powers, tasted the fruits of your passion, and learned your place in the world.
The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.
Everyone has an invisible sign hanging from their neck saying, 'Make me feel important.' Never forget this message when working with people.
Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.

There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophies. My brain and my heart are my temples; my philosophy is kindness.
Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.
Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.
Whether one believes in a religion or not, and whether one believes in rebirth or not, there isn't anyone who doesn't appreciate kindness and compassion.

It is not God's will merely that we should be happy, but that we should make ourselves happy.

Seek not happiness too greedily, and be not fearful of unhappiness.
If you can, help others; if you cannot do that, at least do not harm them.
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.
Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.
