Happiness quotes page 2

Action may not always bring happiness; but there is no happiness without action.
Benjamin Disraeli

Look for a situation in which your work will give you as much happiness as your spare time.
Pablo Picasso

Remember happiness doesn't depend upon who you are or what you have; it depends solely
on what you think.
Dale Carnegie

Affection is responsible for nine-tenths of whatever solid and durable happiness there is in our
lives.
C. S. Lewis

What's the use of happiness? It can't buy you money.
Henry Youngman

If you want to be happy, be.
Leo Tolstoy

The happiest people contribute to something greater than themselves in life.
Marci Shimoff

Our default setting is to always focus on what we don't have, what we lack, to what's
wrong. It's wired into us. People always lament taking things for granted, or not being able to
appreciate what they have. Appreciation for what you have and where you are is an active
habit that must be consciously practiced. Practicing gratitude increases happiness and well-
being. It also makes you far more pleasant to be around.
Mark Manson

To achieve happiness, we should make certain that we are never without an important goal.
Earl Nightingale

You traverse the world in search of happiness, which is within the reach of every man. A
contented mind confers it on all.
Horace

There is no happiness except in the realization that we have accomplished something.
Henry Ford

Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through
self-gratification, but through fildelity to a worthy purpose.
Helen Keller

Real happiness is when you marry a girl for love and find out later she has money.
Bob Monkhouse

Who is happy? This is a person, who has a healthy body, is dowered with peace of mind and
cultivates his talents.
Thales of Miletus

Happiness is activity with purpose.
Jim Rohn

Your success and happiness are forgiven you only if you generously consent to share them.
Albert Camus

Happiness can only be found if you can free yourself of all other distractions.
Saul Bellow

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the
spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.
Denis Waitley

Happiness, n. An agreeable sensation arising from contemplating the misery of another.
Ambrose Bierce

Happiness is the china shop; love is the bull.
H. L. Mencken

Happiness? A good martini, a good meal, a good cigar and a good woman. Or a bad woman; it
depends on how much happiness you can handle.
George Burns

Is there anything men take more pains about than to make themselves unhappy?
Benjamin Franklin

If you decide that you're going to be happy from now on for the rest of your life, you will not
only be happy, you will become enlightened. Unconditional happiness is the highest technique
there is. You don't have to learn Sanskrit or read any scriptures. You don't have to renounce
the world. You just have to really mean it when you say that you choose to be happy. And
you have to mean it regardless of what happens. This is truly a spiritual path, and it is as
direct and sure a path to Awakening as could possibly exist.
Michael A. Singer

Happiness, like unhappiness, is a proactive choice.
Stephen R. Covey

Happiness can be defined, in part at least, as the fruit of the desire and ability to sacrifice
what we want now for what we want eventually.
Stephen R. Covey

Happiness is commonly mistaken for passively experienced pleasure or leisure... True
happiness is a verb. It's the ongoing dynamic performance of worthy deeds.
Epictetus

To stay happy you need to be vigilant over what goes into your mind and out of your mouth.
Sean Stephenson

You have to realize that you really only have one choice in this life, and it's not about your
career, whom you want to marry, or whether you want to seek God. People tend to burden
themselves with so many choices. But, in the end, you can throw it all away and just make
one basic, underlying decision: Do you want to be happy, or do you not want to be happy?
It's really that simple. Once you make that choice, your path through life becomes totally
clear.
Michael A. Singer

It is difficult to find happiness within oneself, but it is impossible to find it anywhere else.
Arthur Schopenhauer

There is no more miserable human being than one in whom nothing is habitual but indecision.
William James

You have it easily in your power to increase the sum total of this world's happiness now. How?
By giving a few words of sincere appreciation to someone who is lonely or discouraged.
Dale Carnegie

Find something to look forward to. One study found that people who just thought
about
watching their favorite movie actually raised their endorphin levels by 27 percent.
Shawn Achor

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
Mahatma Gandhi
