Everyone has an invisible sign hanging from their neck saying, 'Make me feel important.' Never forget this message when working with people.
Happiness is nothing more than good health and a bad memory.
You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.
No one has a right to consume happiness without producing it.
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.
If you can, help others; if you cannot do that, at least do not harm them.
Everyone wants to be appreciated, so if you appreciate someone, don't keep it a secret.
If you deliberately set out to be less than you are capable, you'll be unhappy for the rest of your life.
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.
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.
Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.
No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks.
Happiness: a good bank account, a good cook and a good digestion.
Should not the giver be thankful that the receiver received? Is not giving a need? Is not receiving, mercy?
There is no path to happiness: happiness is the path.
The purpose of government is to enable the people of a nation to live in safety and happiness. Government exists for the interests of the governed, not for the governors.
Leisure is being allowed to do nothing.
My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.
Seek not happiness too greedily, and be not fearful of unhappiness.
He whose face gives no light, shall never become a star.
Age does not make us childish, as some say; it finds us true children.
