It is the chiefest point of happiness that a man is willing to be what he is.

Desiderius Erasmus

HyunSoung Kim

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

Joy and happiness derives not from receiving but from giving.

Debasish Mridha, M.D.

Joy can be real only if people look on their life as a service, and have a definite object in life outside themselves and their personal happiness.

Leo Tolstoy

Just as a cautious businessman avoids investing all his capital in one concern, so wisdom would probably admonish us also not to anticipate all our happiness from one quarter alone.

Sigmund Freud

Key to the happiness is the unconditional love for the humanity.

Debasish Mridha, M.D.

Knowledge of what is possible is the beginning of happiness.

George Santayana

Knowledge produces mildness of speech; mildness of speech, a good character; a good character, wealth; wealth, if virtuous actions attend it, happiness.

The Hitopadesa

Ladies of Fashion starve their happiness to feed their vanity, and their love to feed their pride.

Charles Caleb Colton

Laughter and happiness are priceless gifts. That is to say, we all can effortlessly give or offer both of them to ourselves. Or better still, we can individually decide whether to laugh or not, whether to be happy or not. Therefore, do laugh and remain happy everyday. I mean, be happy and laugh as long as you live. For, it pays to be happy rather than to be unhappy. It's equally better off to laugh than to frown. In case you don't know, denying yourself any of the above priceless gifts (happiness and laughter) is cheating your own self unknowingly. Oh! yes, that's just what you are doing to yourself, if you refuse to laugh and be happy always.

Emeasoba George

Let a man strive to purify his thoughts. What a man thinketh, that is he this is the eternal mystery. Dwelling within himself with thoughts serene, he will obtain imperishable happiness.

Maitri Upanishads

Let happiness bloom in the caring love, in the softness of your tender voice, in the nonjudgmental love, in the beauty and pureness of a smile.

Debasish Mridha, M.D.

Let happiness bloom in the freshness of your mind, in the gentle wind of your thoughts, on the ground of kindness and compassion.

Debasish Mridha, M.D.

Let us be happy too when we see a happy man, because happiness is a candle light in this dark universe!

Mehmet Murat ildan

Let us be well persuaded that everyone of us possesses happiness in proportion to his virtue and wisdom, and according as he acts in obedience to their suggestion.

Aristotle

Let us think, let us love just for a day, just for a night let us find peace and happiness deep in our heart with spiritual light.

Debasish Mridha, M.D.

Life has a purpose and that is to be happy, and happiness is the fruits of our love and labor.

Debasish Mridha, M.D.

Life in common among people who love each other is the ideal of happiness.

George Sand

Life is a gift, so appreciate it. Love is abundant, so share it. Enthusiasm is infectious, so spread it. Kindness is divine, so embody it. Peace is the only way, so embrace it. The earth is your home, so take care of it. Life is for happiness, so enjoy it.

Debasish Mridha, M.D.

Life is all one piece. Men err when they think they can be inhuman exploiters in their business life, and loving husbands and fathers at home. For achievement without love is a cold and tight-lipped murderer of human happiness everywhere.

Smiley Blanton

Life is for happiness and we feel it with appreciation and kindness.

Debasish Mridha, M.D.

Life is made up of small pleasures. Happiness is made up of those tiny successes. The big ones come too infrequently. And if you don't collect all these tiny successes, the big ones don't really mean anything.

Norman Lear

Life is never static, and that's what I Think is the most beautiful aspect of Life. Life is beautiful because it is dynamic; because of her ups and downs, twists and bends, and ebbs and flows in general. Nothing is permanent ever, and only constant is the constant change. 'Even this shall pass!' is the mantra, and also a constant reminder for us, on every occasion when we feel very excited with life's flows, and during the darkest moments when we feel down and out with life's ebbs. The successes, disappointments, friendships, betrayals, helplessness, happiness and loneliness etc, all these will pass away, as the life moves on. So enjoy today, especially this moment and the power of 'Now.' Cheers!
