If we are not happy and joyous at this season,
for what other season shall we wait and,
for what other time shall we look?
Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love and something to hope for.
What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity.
It's hard to create humor because of the unfair competition from the real world
How to look better in one step: smile
People spend a lifetime searching for happiness; looking for peace. They chase idle dreams, addictions, religions, even other people, hoping to fill the emptiness that plagues them. The irony is the only place they ever needed to search was within.
Anderson, Ramona L
Most people would rather be certain they're miserable, than risk being happy
Anthony, Dr. Robert Newton
The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts: therefore, guard accordingly, and take care that you entertain no notion unsuitable to virtue and reasonable nature.
Antoninus, Marcus Aelius Aurelius
All good men are happy when they choose to be their own authors. Those who choose to have others edit their pathways, must live on the edge of another man's sword
Different men seek after happiness in different ways and by different means, and so make for themselves different modes of life and forms of government
Happiness depends upon ourselves
The secret to humour is surprise.
Indeed, man wishes to be happy even when he so lives as to make happiness impossible
I figure if I have my health, can pay the rent and I have my friends, I call it 'content'
Real happiness is cheap enough, yet how dearly we pay for its counterfeit.
I quickly laugh at everything, for fear of having to cry.
Beaumarchais, Pierre de Augustin Caron de
Happiness is good health and a bad memory.
Don't mistake pleasure for happiness. They are a different breed of dogs.
He who binds to himself a joy
Does the winged life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity's sun rise
It is only possible to live happily-ever-after on a day-to-day basis.
Bonanno, Margaret Wander
Laughter is the shortest distance between two people
Happiness is a resultant of the relative strengths of a positive and negative feelings rather than an absolute amount of one or the other.
Never fear spoiling children by making them too happy. Happiness is the atmosphere in which all good affections grow
Money doesn't always bring happiness. People with ten million dollars are no happier than people with nine million dollars
Think big thoughts but relish small pleasures.
Brown, H. Jackson
