Happiness quotes
Happiness
1.

Remember, happiness doesn't depend upon who you are or what you have, it depends solely upon what you think.

- Carnegie, Dale
2.

It is kind of happiness to know to what extent we may be unhappy.

3.

The really happy person is the one who can enjoy the scenery, even when they have to take a detour.

- Jeans, Sir James
4.

Friendship is a strong and habitual inclination in two persons to promote the good and happiness of one another. -

- Budgell, Eustace
5.

The loss of wealth is loss of dirt, as sages in all times assert; The happy man's without a shirt.

- Heywood, John
6.

The supreme happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved.

- Victor Hugo
7.

There is a set of religious, or rather moral, writings which teach that virtue is the certain road to happiness, and vice to misery in this world. A very wholesome and comfortable doctrine, and to which we have but one objection, namely, that it is not true.

- Fielding, Henry
8.

The very flexibility and ease which make men's friendships so agreeable while they endure, make them the easier to destroy and forget. And a man who has a few friends, or one who has a dozen (if there be any one so wealthy on this earth), cannot forget on how precarious a base his happiness reposes; and how by a stroke or two of fate --a death, a few light words, a piece of stamped paper, a woman's bright eyes --he may be left, in a month, destitute of all.

- Stevenson, Robert Louis
9.

The pursuit of happiness, which American citizens are obliged to undertake, tends to involve them in trying to perpetuate the moods, tastes and aptitudes of youth.

- Muggeridge, Malcolm
10.

A smooth sea never made a skillful mariner, neither do uninterrupted prosperity and success qualify for usefulness and happiness. The storms of adversity, like those of the ocean, rouse the faculties, and excite the invention, prudence, skill and fortitude or the voyager. The martyrs of ancient times, in bracing their minds to outward calamities, acquired a loftiness of purpose and a moral heroism worth a lifetime of softness and security.

11.

Knowledge is power. Rather, knowledge is happiness, because to have knowledge -- broad, deep knowledge -- is to know true ends from false, and lofty things from low. To know the thoughts and deeds that have marked man's progress is to feel the great heartthrobs of humanity through the centuries; and if one does not feel in these pulsations a heavenward striving, one must indeed be deaf to the harmonies of life.

- Keller, Helen
12.

Happiness does not lie in happiness, but in the achievement of it.

- Dostoevsky, Fyodor
13.

Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure nineteen six, result happiness. Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure twenty pound ought and six, result misery.

- Charles Dickens
14.

Every job has drudgery, whether it is in the home, in the school, or in the office. The first secret of happiness is the recognition of this fundamental fact.

- Mcintosh, M. C.
15.

Shall we never have done with that cliche, so stupid that it could only be human, about the sympathy of animals for man when he is unhappy? Animals love happiness almost as much as we do. A fit of crying disturbs them, they'll sometimes imitate sobbing, and for a moment they'll reflect our sadness. But they flee unhappiness as they flee fever, and I believe that in the long run they are capable of boycotting it.

- Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
16.

Happiness is always a by-product. It is probably a matter of temperament, and for anything I know it may be glandular. But it is not something that can be demanded from life, and if you are not happy you had better stop worrying about it and see what treasures you can pluck from your own brand of unhappiness.

- Robertson Davies
17.

God has not only made things beautiful; He has made things happy; whatever misery there is in the world there is no denying that. Misery is the exception; happiness is the rule. No rational man ever heard a bird sing without feeling that the bird was happy, and that if God made that bird He made it to be happy, and He takes pleasure in its happiness, though no human ear should ever hear its song, no human heart should ever share in its joy.

- All Saints' Day Sermons. 1871.
18.

We are happy when for everything inside us there is a corresponding something outside us.

- Yeats, William Butler
19.

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
20.

The consuming desire of most human beings is deliberately to plant their whole life in the hands of some other person. I would describe this method of searching for happiness as immature. Development of character consists solely in moving toward self-sufficiency.

- Crisp, Quentin
