The world is full of people looking for spectacular happiness while they snub contentment.

No one is guaranteed happiness. Life just gives us time and space. It is up to us to fill it with joy and meaning.

Almost all of our unhappiness is the result of comparing ourselves to others. 

Happiness or unhappiness lies not in the events themselves, but in the way one feels about them and reacts towards them.

If a person has happiness, he has the life-power to live fully. He is alive, so to speak.

Happy are those who can give without remembering and take without forgetting.

It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere.

The happiness we all seek can only be achieved through self control, not material possessions.

It always pays to put others before yourself. It is the path to true happiness.

The first recipe for happiness is: Avoid too lengthy meditations on the past.

A person should so live that their happiness shall depend as little as possible on external things. 

He alone is the happy man who has learned to extract happiness not from ideal conditions but from actual ones about him. 

Do not let anyone hold your happiness in their hands, – hold it in yours so it will always be within your reach.

It is pretty hard to tell what brings happiness; poverty and wealth have both failed.

True happiness is not to achieve our goals but to learn to be satisfied with what we already achieved.
