For Every Minute You Are Angry You Lose Sixty Seconds Of Happiness

Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.

People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be.

It's so hard to forget pain, but it's even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace.

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.

You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.

Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.

Count your age by friends, not years. Count your life by smiles, not tears.

The most important thing is to enjoy your life—to be happy—it's all that matters.

Of all forms of caution, caution in love is perhaps the most fatal to true happiness.

You cannot protect yourself from sadness without protecting yourself from happiness.

The only way to find true happiness is to risk being completely cut open.

There's nothing like deep breaths after laughing that hard. Nothing in the world like a sore stomach for the right reasons.

If more of us valued food and cheer above hoarded gold, it would be a much merrier world.

Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it.
