123



Flowers are for our souls to enjoy.
-- Native American Proverb

If you would be happy all your life - plant a garden.
-- Unknown Author

Some people cause happiness wherever they go; others cause happiness whenever they go.
-- Unknown Author

Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.
-- Dr. Albert Schweitzer

The soul would have no rainbow if the eyes had no tears.
-- Native American Proverb

After distress, solace.
-- Swahili Proverb

A saddened heart is not made happier with a change of place.
-- Unknown Author

Happiness in this world, when it comes, comes incidentally. Make it the object of pursuit, and it leads us on a wild-goose chase, and is never attained. Follow some other object, and very possibly we may find that we have caught happiness without dreaming of it.
-- Nathaniel Hawthorne

You can multiply happiness by dividing it.
-- Unknown Author

In order to be utterly happy the only thing necessary is to refrain from comparing this moment with other moments in the past, which I often did not fully enjoy because I was comparing them with other moments of the future.
-- Andre Gide

Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves.
-- J.M. Barrie

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
