Happiness and the absurd are two sons of the same earth. They are inseparable. It would be a mistake to say that happiness necessarily springs from the absurd. Discovery. It happens as well that the felling of the absurd springs from happiness. "I conclude that all is well," says Edipus, and that remark is sacred. It echoes in the wild and limited universe of man. It teaches that all is not, has not been, exhausted. It drives out of this world a god who had come into it with dissatisfaction and a preference for futile suffering. It makes of fate a human matter, which must be settled among men.

Albert Camus

Happiness cannot be found--it must be created anew everyday.

Jose Raul Bernardo, The Wise Women of Havana (HarperCollins, 2002)

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.

Happiness comes in small peaces. Stop looking for it, before you’ll get lost. Don’t expect too much, or you’ll make room for disappointment. Take life as it is and you’ll enjoy it!

Cristian Andrei Nica

Happiness in this world, when it comes, comes incidentally. Make it the object of pursuit, and it leads us a wild-goose chase, and is never attained.

Nathaniel Hawthorne

Happiness includes chiefly the idea of satisfaction after full honest effort. No one can possibly be satisfied and no one can be happy who feels that in some paramount affairs he failed to take up the challenge of life.

Arnold Bennett

Happiness is a butterfly which when pursued is just out of grasp... But if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.

Nathaniel Hawthorne

Nathaniel Hawthorne

Deepak Chopra

Happiness is a how, not a what: a talent, not an object

Hermann Hesse

Happiness is a matter of choice. Besides, sadness is also a matter of choice. So, which of the above habits or lifestyles have you been or are you indulging in? Anyway, I'm urging you as ever choose happiness rather than sadness. Because, happiness is a good antidote to stress. It equally guarantees and brings longevity. But, the reverse is the case with sadness. Or rather sadness shortens one's life span. Thus, say NO to sadness and then say YES to happiness. For, happiness pays rather than sadness.
