Happiness Quotes

Happiness is to hold flowers in both hands.

Japanese saying

Happiness grows at our own firesides, and is not to be picked in strangers' gardens.

Douglas William Jerrold

All human history attests That happiness for man,--the hungry sinner!-- Since Eve ate apples, much depends on dinner.

Lord Byron

The safety and happiness of society are the objects at which all political institutions aim, and to which all such institutions must be sacrificed

John Gunther

I know, indeed, of nothing more subtle satisfying and cheering than a knowledge of the real good will and appreciation of others. Such happiness does not come with money, nor does it flow from a fine physical state. It cannot be bought. But it is the keenest joy, after all; and the toiler's truest and best reward.

William Dean Howells

Happiness includes chiefly the idea of satisfaction after full honest effort. No one can possibly be satisfied and no one can be happy who feels that in some paramount affairs he failed to take up the challenge of life.

Arnold Bennett

Is there no virtue among us? If there be not, we are in a wretched situation. No theoretical checks -- no form of government can render us secure. To suppose liberty or happiness without any virtue in the people, is a chimerical idea. If there be sufficient virtue and intelligence in the community, it will be exercised in the selection of these men. So that we do not depend on their virtue, or put confidence in our rulers, but in the people who are to choose them.

James Madison

The secret of happiness is to admire without desiring. And that is not happiness.

F. H. Bradley

Artie Lange

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

He who, seeking his own happiness, punishes or kills beings who also long for happiness, will not find happiness after death.

Buddhist Dhammapada

There is no fundamental difference between man and the higher animals in their mental faculties... The lower animals, like man, manifestly feel pleasure and pain, happiness, and misery.

True happiness, we are told, consists in getting out of one's self; but the point is not only to get out - you must stay out; and to stay out you must have some absorbing errand.
