A Select Collection of Happiness Quotations

What is this happiness thing anyway? When I was a small girl, I remember an ad that said, "Happiness is saying yes to milk!" Now there is a thought! More than anything else, happiness is a personal experience. So, whether it is saying yes to milk, or reading poetry, make sure to pursue your happiness.

Chinese Proverb
If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will avoid one hundred days of sorrow.

George Matthew Adams
If you have nothing else to do, look about you and see if there isn't something close at hand that you can improve! It may make you wealthy, though it is more likely that it will make you happy.

Anne Morrow Lindbergh
If you surrender completely to the moments as they pass, you live more richly those moments.

Chinese Proverb
If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap. If you want happiness for a day, go fishing. If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.

The Dalai Lama
If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.

English Proverb
If you want to be happy for a year, plant a garden; if you want to be happy for life, plant a tree.

Coretta Scott King
I'm fulfilled in what I do... I never thought that a lot of money or fine clothes-the finer things of life-would make you happy. My concept of happiness is to be filled in a spiritual sense.

John Ruskin
In order that people may be happy in their work, these three things are needed: They must be fit for it: They must not do too much of it: And they must have a sense of success in it.

Richard Bach
In the path of our happiness shall we find the learning for which we have chosen this lifetime.

Susan B. Anthony
Independence is happiness.
