Happiness Quotes

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.
Helen Keller


Happiness does not consist in pastimes and amusements but in virtuous activities.
Aristotle


Happiness resides not in posessions and not in gold; the feeling of happiness dwells in the soul.
Democritus


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.
Albert Schweitzer



Happiness is not achieved by the conscious pursuit of happiness; it is generally the by-product of other activities.

Aldous Huxley



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


Happiness consists in activity: such is the constitution of our nature; it is a running stream, and not a stagnant pool.
John M. Good


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 otherit 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


The chances are that you have already come to believe that happiness is unattainable. But men have attained it. And they have attained it by realising that happiness does not spring from the procuring of physical or mental pleasure, but from the development of reason and the adjustment of conduct to principles.
from How to Live on 24 Hours a Day, by Arnold Bennett


Happiness is not a matter of events, it depends upon the tides of the mind.
Alice Meynell


Fortify yourself with contentment, for this is an impregnable fortress.
Epictetus


Happiness depends more on the inward disposition of mind than on outward circumstances.
Benjamin Franklin


There is only one way to happiness, and that is to cease worrying things which are beyond the power of our will.
Epictetus


I have learned to seek my happiness by limiting my desires, rather than attempting to satisfy them.
John Stuart Mills



You're happiest while you're making the greatest contribution.
Robert F. Kennedy


Action may not always bring happiness;
but there is no happiness without action.
Benjamin Disraeli


Great effort from great motives is the best definition of a happy life.
William Ellery Channing


There is more to life than increasing its speed.
Mahatma Ghandi


The rays of happiness, like those of light, are colorless when unbroken.
Henry W. Longfellow


Happiness grows at our own firesides, and is not to be picked in strangers' gardens.
Douglas Jerrold


Happiness is where we find it, but rarely where we seek it.
J. Petit Senn


To be happy, we must not be too concerned with others.
Albert Camus


Happiness depends upon ourselves.
Aristotle


Try to be happy in this present moment, and put not off being so to a time to come,—as though that time should be of another make from this which has already come and is ours.
Thomas Fuller


Knowledge of what is possible is the beginning of happiness.
George Santayana


No man is happy who does not think himself so.
Publilius Syrus


Our minds are as different as our faces: we are all traveling to one destination; --happiness; but few are going by the same road.
Charles Caleb Colton
