Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be.
Remember that very little is needed to make a happy life.
Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.
Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
Now and then it's good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.
We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.
In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.
If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or objects.
Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
People take different roads seeking fulfilment and happiness. Just because they're not on your road doesn't mean they've gotten lost.
It isn't what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about.
Get busy living, or get busy dying.
Life is what happens to you while you're planning on doing something else.
Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.
I have found that if you love life, life will love you back.
The art of living does not consist in preserving and clinging to a particular mode of happiness, but in allowing happiness to change its form without being disappointed by the change; happiness, like a child, must be allowed to grow up.
But I'm very happy with my life the way it has been turning out. A little time in the country, a little time with the animals and working on behalf of them.
Tranquil pleasures last the longest; we are not fitted to bear the burden of great joys.
When you love life, life will love you back.
Just because they're not on your road doesn't mean they've gotten lost.
