Happiness quotes
Happiness
The crowning fortune of a man is to be born to some pursuit which finds him employment and happiness, whether it be to make baskets, or broadswords, or canals, or statues, or songs.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
In moderate doses melancholy can be strangley comforting, darkly sweet; it can by providing contrast, give an exquisitely sharp edge to happiness, especially to pleasures of the flesh.

- Dean Koontz
I certainly wasn't happy. Happiness has to do with reason, and only reason earns it. What I was given was the thing you can't earn, and can't keep, and often don't even recognize at the time; I mean joy.

- Ursula K. LeGuin
Fun I love, but too much fun is of all things the most loathsome. Mirth is better than fun, and happiness is better than mirth.

- Blake, William
Men can only be happy when they do not assume that the object of life is happiness

- Orwell, George
The secret of happiness and prosperity in this world, as in the world to come, lies in thinking of the welfare of others first, and not taking one's self too seriously.

- Kindleberger, J.
The time to be happy is now. The place to be happy is here. The way to be happy is to make others so.

Content makes poor men rich; discontentment makes rich men poor.

- Benjamin Franklin
The really happy man never laughs -- seldom -- though he may smile. He does not need to laugh, for laughter, like weeping is a relief of mental tension -- and the happy are not over strung.

- Aveling, Prof. F. A. P.
What we call the secret of happiness is no more a secret than our willingness to choose life.

- Buscaglia, Leo
Happiness is unrepentant pleasure.

- Socrates
Joy, rather than happiness, is the goal of life, for joy is the emotion which accompanies our fulfilling our natures as human beings. It is based on the experience of one's identity as a being of worth and dignity.

- May, Rollo
Happiness lies first of all in health.

- Curtis, George William
The best advice on the art of being happy is about as easy to follow as advice to be well when one is sick.

- Swetchine, Anne Sophie
Marriage is a lottery in which men stake their liberty and women their happiness.

- Rieux, Madame De
Grief at the absence of a loved one is happiness compared to life with a person one hates.

- Bruyere, Jean De La
To be without some of the things you want is an indispensable part of happiness.

- Bertrand Russell
We may remark in passing that to be blind and beloved may, in this world where nothing is perfect, be among the most strangely exquisite forms of happiness. The supreme happiness in life is the assurance of being loved; of being loved for oneself, even in spite of oneself; and this assurance the blind man possesses. In his affliction, to be served is to be caressed. Does he lack anything? no. Possessing love he is not deprived of light. A love, moreover, that is wholly pure. There can be no blindness where there is this certainty.

- Hugo, Victor
There is no happiness; there are only moments of happiness.

- Proverb, Spanish
Man's fear of ideas is probably the greatest dike holding back human knowledge and happiness.

- Ernst, Morris L.
