A happy life is one which is in accordance with its own nature.
The pleasure of love is in loving, and we derive more happiness from the passion that we experience than from the passion we arouse.
François de la Rochefoucauld quotes
I don't know what your destiny will be, but one thing I do know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve.
Albert Schweitzer quotes
We take great pains to persuade other that we are happy than in endeavouring to think so ourselves.
Action may not bring happiness but there is no happiness without action.
William James quotes
There is joy in work. There is no happiness except in the realization that we have accomplished something.
Henry Ford quotes
The word "happiness" would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.
Carl Jung quotes
There is this difference between happiness and wisdom, that he that thinks himself the happiest man really is so; but he that thinks himself the wisest is generally the greatest fool.
Charles Caleb Colton quotes
Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give.
Eleanor Roosevelt quotes
Happiness... it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.
Franklin D. Roosevelt quotes
