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
If your joy is derived from what society thinks of you, you're always going to be disappointed.
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
Money won't buy happiness, but it will pay the salaries of a huge research staff to study the problem.
- William E. "Bill" Vaughan
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

Happiness is your nature. It is not wrong to desire it. What is wrong is seeking it outside when it is inside.
- Ramana Maharshi
The only satisfactory definition of happiness is wholeness.
- Helen Keller
Even if happiness forgets you a little bit, never completely forget about it.
