Happiness Quotes

Human Beings, indeed all sentient beings, have the right to pursue happiness and live in peace and freedom.

Dalai Lama

Spring is the season of gaiety, and winter of terror; in spring the heart of tranquility dances to the melody of the groves, and the eye of benevolence sparkles at the sight of happiness and plenty: in winter, compassion melts at universal calamity, and the tear of softness starts at the wailing of hunger and the cries of the creation in distress

Samuel Johnson

Just in case you need another reason to smile - consider the happiness friends bring.

Linda Maron

I saw that all beings are fated to happiness: action is not life, but a way of wasting some force, an enervation. Morality is the weakness of the brain.

Arthur Rimbaud

The modern fairy tale ending is the reverse of the traditional one A woman does not wait for Prince Charming to bring her happiness she lives happily ever after only by refusing to wait for him -- or by actually rejecting him.

Susan Faludi

James Wilson

Realize that true happiness lies within you. Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside.

Talking about it is the same as trying to catch the wind. Much easier to let it blow all over you. This is where I disagree with the philosophers. They talk about passionate things but there is no passion in them. Never talk happiness with a philosopher

Jeanette Winterson

I understand by this passion the union of desire, friendship, and tenderness, which is inflamed by a single female, which prefers her to the rest of her sex, and which seeks her possession as the supreme or the sole happiness of our being.

Edward Gibbon
