Happiness Quotes

There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved

George Sands

Lifes greatest happiness is to be convinced that we are loved.

Victor Hugo

There is no disease (so destructive) as lust; no enemy like infatuation; no fire like wrath; and no happiness like spiritual knowledge.

Chanakya

Sometimes we strive so hard for perfection that we forget that imperfection is happiness

Karen Nave

Happiness and misery depend not on how high up or low down you are - they depend not upon these, but on the direction in which you are tending.

Samuel Butler

Pride is seldom delicate, it will please itself with very mean advantages; and envy feels not its own happiness, but when it may be compared with the misery of others.

Samuel Johnson

Suspicion is not less an enemy to virtue than to happiness; he that is already corrupt is naturally suspicious, and he that becomes suspicious will quickly become corrupt.

Samuel Johnson

In Europe we thought of wine as something as healthy and normal as food and also a great giver of happiness and well being and delight. Drinking wine was not a snobbism nor a sign of sophistication nor a cult; it was as natural as eating and to me as necessary.

Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.

Buddha

The idea that happiness could have a share in beauty would be too much of a good thing.

Norman MacEwan

If a person's basic state of mind is serene and calm, then it is possible for this inner peace to overwhelm a painful physical experience. On the other hand, if someone is suffering from depression, anxiety, or any form of emotional distress, then even if he or she happens to be enjoying physical comforts, he will not really be able to experience the happiness that these could bring.

Dalai Lama

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

James Madison

All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast.

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

Vegas means comedy, tragedy, happiness and sadness all at the same time.

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
