Suspicion of happiness is in our blood.
Act happy, feel happy, be happy, without a reason in the world. Then you can love, and do what you will.
The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance; The wise grows it under his feet.
Happiness serves hardly any other purpose than to make unhappiness possible.
Happiness depends more on how life strikes you than on what happens.
It is in the compelling zest of high adventure and of victory, and in creative action, that man finds his supreme joys.
A lifetime of happiness? No man alive could bear it; it would be hell on earth.
Objects we ardently pursue bring little happiness when gained; most of our pleasures come from unexpected sources.
No man should desire to be happy who is not at the same time holy. He should spend his efforts in seeking to know and do the will of God, leaving to Christ the matter of how happy he should be.
Happiness is the act of being tough with ourselves and tender with others.
Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.
Call no man happy till he is dead.
