I divide all readers into two classes: those who read to remember and those who read to forget.
Those who decide to use leisure as a means of mental development, who love good music, good books, good pictures, good plays, good company, good conversation - what are they? They are the happiest people in the world.
If happiness truly consisted in physical ease and freedom from care the happiest, individual would not be either a man or a woman it; it would be, I think a cow.
Why is it that so many people are afraid to admit they are happy?
The principle of happiness should be like the principle of virtue: it should not be dependent of things, but be a part of personality [and character].
The kind of happiness that stays with you is the happiness that springs from inward thoughts and emotions.
Real happiness is not dependent on external things.
