Quotes about Happiness

A table, a chair, a bowl of fruit and a violin; what else does a man need to be happy?
Albert Einstein
Being happy is something you have to learn. I often surprise myself by saying “Wow, this is it. I guess I’m happy. I got a home I love. A career that I love. I’m even feeling more and more at peace with myself.” If there’s something else to happiness, let me know. I’m ambitious for that, too.
Harrison Ford
Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give.
Eleanor Roosevelt
The greatest degree of inner tranquility comes from the development of love and compassion. The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being.
Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lamat
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
Knowledge of what is possible is the beginning of happiness.
George Santayana
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
The amount of happiness that you have depends on the amount of freedom you have in your heart.
Thich Nhat Hanh
To forgive is the highest, most beautiful form of love. In return, you will receive untold peace and happiness.
Robert Muller
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
The truest greatness lies in being kind, the truest wisdom in a happy mind.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
Marcel Proust
You don’t develop courage by being happy in your relationships everyday. You develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity.
Barbara De Angelis
The Grand essentials of happiness are: something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.
Allan K. Chalmers
Whoever is happy will make others happy, too.
Mark Twain
Consider the following. We humans are social beings. We come into the world as the result of others’ actions. We survive here in dependence on others. Whether we like it or not, there is hardly a moment of our lives when we do not benefit from others’ activities. For this reason it is hardly surprising that most of our happiness arises in the context of our relationships with others…
Genuine happiness consists in those spiritual qualities of love, compassion, patience, tolerance and forgiveness and so on. For it is these which provide both for our happiness and others’ happiness.
Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama
