Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.
Part of the happiness of life consists not in fighting battles, but in avoiding them. A masterly retreat is in itself a victory.
Happiness is an expression of the soul in considered actions.
If you deliberately set out to be less than you are capable, you'll be unhappy for the rest of your life.
The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.
Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.
We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all that we need to make us happy is something to be enthusiastic about.
From there to here, from here to there, funny things are everywhere!
We were together. I forget the rest.
Happiness depends upon ourselves.
Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.
Children are happy because they don't have a file in their minds called 'All the Things That Could Go Wrong.
Age does not make us childish, as some say; it finds us true children.
Money can't buy you happiness but it does bring you a more pleasant form of misery.
Learn to value yourself, which means: fight for your happiness.
Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.
Happiness is mental harmony; unhappiness is mental inharmony.
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.
Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself in your way of thinking.
But happiness is no respecter of persons.
He whose face gives no light, shall never become a star.
