When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.
Happiness does not consist in pastimes and amusements but in virtuous activities.
Happiness resides not in posessions and not in gold; the feeling of happiness dwells in the soul.
The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts; therefore guard accordingly.
People with many interests live, not only longest, but happiest.
George Matthew Allen
In the hopes of reaching the moon men fail to see the flowers that blossom at their feet.
Happiness is not achieved by the conscious pursuit of happiness, it is generally the by-product of other activities.
There is only one person who could ever make you happy, and that person is you.
David Burns, Intimate Connections
The happiness of life is made up of minute fractions—the little soon-forgotten charities of a kiss, a smile, a kind look, a heartfelt compliment in the disguise of a playful raillery, and the countless other infinitessimals of pleasurable thought and genial feeling.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
The man is happiest who lives from day to day and asks no more, garnering the simple goodness of life.
Happiness consists in activity: such is the constitution of our nature; it is a running stream, and not a stagnant pool.
John M. Good
Happiness is not a state to arrive at, but a manner of traveling.
Margaret Lee Runbeck
Men spend their lives in anticipations...in determining to be vastly happy at some period when they have time. But the present time has one advantage over every other...it is our own. Past opportunities are gone, future have not come. We may lay in a stock of pleasures, as we would lay in a stock of wine; but if we defer the tasting of them too long, we shall find that both are soured by age.
Charles Caleb Colton
Who is the happiest of men? He who values the merits of others, and in their pleasure takes joy, even as though 'twere his own.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
