The Way to Happiness

The Way to Happiness

Here are some wise quotes about getting happiness in your life:

Happiness is like a butterfly.
The more you chase it, the more it eludes you.
But if you turn your attention to other things,
It comes and sits softly on your shoulder.
~Henry David Thoreau

Action may not bring happiness but there is no happiness without action.
~ William James

Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.
~Marcus Aurelius Antoninus

The grand essentials of happiness are: something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.
~Allan K. Chalmers

Happiness is not given but exchanged.

The happiest person is the person who thinks the most interesting thoughts.
~Timothy Dwight

The search for happiness is one of the chief sources of unhappiness.
~Eric Hoffer

Unhappiness is the hunger to get; happiness is the hunger to give. . . . If the individual should set out for a single day to give happiness, to make life happier, brighter and sweeter, not for himself but for others, he would find a wondrous revelation of what happiness really is.
~William George Jordan

The way to happiness: keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry. Live simply, expect little, give much. Fill your life with love. Scatter sunshine. Forget self, think of others. Do as you would be done by. Try this for a week and you will be surprised.
~H. C. Mattern

I believe the recipe for happiness to be just enough money to pay the monthly bills you acquire, a little surplus to give you confidence, a little too much work each day, enthusiasm for your work, a substantial share of good health, a couple of real friends, and a wife and children to share life's beauty with you.
~J. Kenfield Morley

Happiness is mostly a by-product of doing what makes us feel fulfilled.
~ Benjamin Spock

Gratefulness is the key to a happy life that we hold in our hands, because if we are not grateful, then no matter how much we have we will not be happy — because we will always want to have something else or something more.
~ David Steindl-Rast

Happiness is not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.
~ Franklin D. Roosevelt

It is only possible to live happily ever after on a day to day basis.
~ Margaret Bonnano

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

Happiness does not come from doing easy work but from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes after the achievement of a difficult task that demanded our best.
~- Theodore Isaac Rubin

The true way to render ourselves happy is to love our work and find in it our pleasure.
~Fran├žoise Bertaut de Motteville

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