“Being happy doesn’t mean that everything is perfect.
It means that you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections.”
The Constitution only guarantees the American people
the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself.
“Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life,
the whole aim and end of human existence”
Even if happiness forgets you a little bit,
never completely forget about it.
Real elation is when you feel you could touch a star without standing on tiptoe.
If there were in the world today any large number of people who desired
their own happiness more than they desired the unhappiness of others,
we could have a paradise in a few years. ~Bertrand Russell
Pleasure is spread through the earth
In stray gifts to be claimed by whoever shall find.
~William Wordsworth, 1806
The search for happiness is one of the chief sources of unhappiness.
~Eric Hoffer, The Passionate State of Mind, 1954
“Be happy. It’s one way of being wise.”
We must laugh before we are happy,
for fear of dying without having laughed at all.
~Jean de La Bruyere
“Love is the condition in which the
happiness of another person is essential to your own.”
If only we’d stop trying to be happy we could have a pretty good time.
“People love others not for who they are but for how they make them feel”
