Indeed, man wishes to be happy even when he so lives as to make happiness impossible.

Individuality is the aim of political liberty. By leaving to the citizen as much freedom of action and of being, as comports with order and the rights of others, the institutions render him truly a freeman. He is left to pursue his means of happiness in his own manner.

Mehmet Murat ildan

Interesting aspect of human psyche is that we are, deep inside, not afraid of our inadequacies. Our deepest and innermost fears are surprisingly associated with our own abilities and powers. It is our light that often dazzles us, and frightens us to the core, than our darkness. Paradoxical as it may seem, many people get concerned, deep inside and not outwardly, for being perceived as brilliant, beautiful, genius, talented, gorgeous and extraordinary. When we realize and accept that we all are God's creations, and that we all carry the same divine spark within us, all our deepest fears disappear, either of our abilities or of our inadequacies.....and then there is no more darkness, but the shimmering bright light of happiness and equality all along.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Is it not the glory of the people of America, that, whilst they have paid a decent regard to the opinions of former times and other nations, they have not suffered a blind veneration for antiquity, for custom, or for names, to overrule the suggestions of their own good sense, the knowledge of their own situation, and the lessons of their own experience? To this manly spirit, posterity will be indebted for the possession, and the world for the example, of the numerous innovations displayed on the American theatre, in favor of private rights and public happiness.

James Madison

It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere.

Agnes Repplier

It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

It is not true that suffering ennobles the character; happiness does that sometimes, but suffering, for the most part, makes men petty and vindictive.

It may seem to your conceited to suppose that you can do anything important toward improving the lot of mankind. But this is a fallacy. You must believe that you can help bring about a better world. A good society is produced only by good individuals, just as truly as a majority in a presidential election is produced by the votes of single electors. Everybody can do something toward creating in his own environment kindly feelings rather than anger, reasonableness rather than hysteria, happiness rather than misery.

Bertrand Russell

It's afterwards you realize that the feeling of happiness you had with a man didn't necessarily prove that you loved him.

Marguerite Duras
