Inspirational Thoughts on Happiness
12



The greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions, and not on our circumstances. We carry the seeds of the one or the other about with us in our minds wherever we go.
-- Martha Washington

The only nice thing about being imperfect is the joy it brings to others.
-- Doug Larson

Happiness is good health and a bad memory.
-- Ingrid Bergman

Whoever renders service to many puts himself in line for greatness -- great wealth, great return, great satisfaction, great reputation, and great joy.
-- Jim Rohn

We enjoy warmth because we have been cold. We appreciate light because we have been in darkness. By the same token, we can experience joy because we have known sadness.
-- David L. Weatherford

Those who can be happy today should not wait until tomorrow.
-- German Proverb

If we could only find the courage to leave our destiny to chance, to accept the fundamental mystery of our lives, then we might be closer to the sort of happiness that comes with innocence.
-- Luis Bunuel

In life you can never be too kind or too fair; everyone you meet is carrying a heavy load. When you go through your day expressing kindness and courtesy to all you meet, you leave behind a feeling of warmth and good cheer, and you help alleviate the burdens everyone is struggling with.
-- Brian Tracy

The happiness of life is made up of minute fractions--the little, soon-forgotten charities of a kiss or smile, a kind look or heartfelt compliment.
-- Samuel Taylor Coleridge

The common course of things is in favor of happiness; that happiness is the rule, misery the exception. Were the order reversed, our attention would be called to examples of health and competency, instead of disease and want.
-- William Paley

Wrinkles should merely indicate where the smiles have been.
-- Mark Twain

Money doesn't make you happy, but it quiets the nerves.
-- Sean O'Casey

Happiness comes more from loving than being loved; and often when our affection seems wounded it is only our vanity bleeding. To love, and to be hurt often, and to love again--this is the brave and happy life.
-- J. E. Buckrose

To make a man happy, fill his hands with work, his heart with affection, his mind with purpose, his memory with useful knowledge, his future with hope, and his stomach with food.
-- Frederick E. Crane

Happiness is not a horse, you cannot harness it.
-- Russian Proverb

Our sweetest experiences of affection are meant to point us to that realm which is the real and endless home of the heart.
-- Henry Ward Beecher

In the kingdom of hope there is no winter.
-- Russian Proverb

Have a little laugh at life and look around you for happiness instead of sadness. You usually can find something to laugh about if you try hard enough.
-- Red Skelton

When people are laughing, they're generally not killing each other.
-- Alan Alda

All time spent angry is time lost being happy.
-- Mexican Proverb

Love may not make the world go around, but it sure makes the trip worthwhile.
-- Unknown Author

Dance to the music of your heart and the audience will surely applaud.
-- Ron R.

I think I began learning long ago that those who are happiest are those who do the most for others.
-- Booker T. Washington

The secret of happiness is not in doing what one likes to do, but in liking what one has to do.
-- Sir James M. Barrie

Whoever enjoys his life is doing the Creator's will.
-- Jewish Proverb
