Twenty-Six Happiness Quotes GRATEFULNESS is the key to a happy life that we hold in our hands, because if we are not grateful, then no matter how much we have we will not be happy -- because we will always want to have something else or something more. ~ David Steindl-Rast BUT what is happiness except the simple harmony between a man and the life he leads? ~ Albert Camus HAPPINESS is as a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but which if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne IT doesn't matter how long we may have been stuck in a sense of our limitations. If we go into a darkened room and turn on the light, it doesn't matter if the room has been dark for a day, a week, or ten thousand years -- we turn on the light and it is illuminated. Once we control our capacity for love and happiness, the light has been turned on. ~ Sharon Salzberg THOUSANDS of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared. ~ Buddha HAPPINESS is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson EVEN a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity. ~ Carl Jung IF you search the world for happiness, you may find it in the end, for the world is round and will lead you back to your door. ~ Robert Brault REALIZE that true happiness lies within you. Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside. Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself. ~ Og Mandino PEOPLE spend a lifetime searching for happiness; looking for peace. They chase idle dreams, addictions, religions, even other people, hoping to fill the emptiness that plagues them. The irony is the only place they ever needed to search was within. ~ Ramona L. Anderson SOMETIMES your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh EACH morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it. ~ Groucho Marx HAPPINESS comes only from appreciating what you have right now. You can even be happy by appreciating your troubles because they are helping to build your character. ~ Harriet Meyerson HAPPINESS is not a destination: it is a manner of traveling. Happiness is not an end in itself. It is a by-product of working, playing, loving and living. -~ Haim Ginott A happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances, but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes. ~ Hugh Downs PEOPLE take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they're not on your road doesn't mean they've gotten lost. ~ Dalai Lama THERE are two things to aim at in life: first, to get what you want; and after that, to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second. ~ Logan Pearsall Smith, Afterthoughts, 1931 A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery while on a detour. ~ Author Unknown SEEKING happiness, I passed many travelers headed in the opposite direction, seeking happiness. ~ Robert Brault HAPPINESS always looks small while you hold it in your hands, but let it go, and you learn at once how big and precious it is. ~ Maxim Gorky
