Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap.
- William J. Bennett
With a genuine keenness or readiness to serve others, one can attain happiness in any group or community, and the eagerness to serve others will endow you with the power and skill necessary for the required service. Nowadays, we tend to regard it as derogatory to serve, but there is great worth in service.
- Sathya Sai Baba
Poor is the man whose pleasure depends on the permission of another.
Happiness makes up in height for what it lacks in length.
- Robert Frost
The saddest people I've ever met in life are the ones who don't care deeply about anything at all. Passion and satisfaction go hand in hand, and without them, any happiness is only temporary, because there's nothing to make it last.
- Nicholas Sparks
We know, how to build a beautiful house, but we don’t know how to live within it happily.
- J. Krishnamurti
When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.
- John Lennon
Money won't buy happiness, but it will pay the salaries of a huge research staff to study the problem.
- William E. "Bill" Vaughan
If you search the world for happiness, you may find it in the end, for the world is round and will lead you back to your door.
- Robert Brault
Happiness is not the absence of problems. It’s the ability to deal with them.
- Steve Maraboli
