To attain happiness in another world we need only to believe something; to secure it in this world, we must do something. - Charlotte Perkins Gilman 

Some of us might find happiness if we quit struggling so desperately for it. - William Feather

There is no happiness except in the realization that we have accomplished something. - Henry Ford

Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared. 

The key to happiness is not that you never get upset, frustrated or irritated. It is how quickly you decide to snap out of it.

Happiness, like an old friend, is inclined to drop in unexpectedly – when you are working hard on something else.

All of us attain the greatest success and happiness possible in this life whenever we use our native capacities to their fullest extent.

If we want to remain happy in spite of the ups and downs of life we have to be real people, honest with and fair to ourselves.

Work, either with the hands or the head. The moment you have something to do, the draughts are open and the chimney draws and you are happy.

The happiest of people do not necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.

Half the unhappiness in the world is due to the failure of plans which were never reasonable, and often impossible.

If you want to be cheerful and happy, act that way and you will soon find yourself becoming that way.

The best way to secure future happiness is to be as happy as is rightfully possible today.
