Physically you are a human being, but mentally you are incomplete. Given that we have this physical human form, we must safeguard our mental capacity for judgment. For that, we cannot take out insurance; the insurance company is within: self-discipline, self-awareness, and a clear realization of the disadvantages of anger and the positive effects of kindness.

Happy Quotes About Life

Happy Quotes About Life

Resolve to keep happy and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties.
--Helen Keller

The greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions, and not on our circumstances. We carry the seeds of the one or the other about with us in our minds wherever we go.

Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.
--Thich Nhat Hanh

No matter how much madder it may make you, get out of bed forcing a smile. You may not smile because you are cheerful; but if you will force yourself to smile, you'll end up laughing. You will be cheerful because you smile. Repeated experiments prove that when man assumes the facial expressions of a given mental mood — any given mood — then that mental mood itself will follow.

Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.

Happiness is not in our circumstance but in ourselves. It is not something we see, like a rainbow, or feel, like the heat of a fire. Happiness is something we are.

The happiest people don't worry too much about whether life is fair or not, they just get on with it.
 - Andrew Matthews

For most of life, nothing wonderful happens. If you don't enjoy getting up and working and finishing your work and sitting down to a meal with family or friends, then the chances are that you're not going to be very happy. If someone bases his happiness or unhappiness on major events like a great new job, huge amounts of money, a flawlessly happy marriage or a trip to Paris, that person isn't going to be happy much of the time. If, on the other hand, happiness depends on a good breakfast, flowers in the yard, a drink or a nap, then we are more likely to live with quite a bit of happiness.
–Andy Rooney

The art of being happy lies in the power of extracting happiness from common things.
— Henry Ward Beecher

If we'd stop trying to be happy we could have a pretty good time.

Happiness is as a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but which if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.
--Nathaniel Hawthorne

The Spirit bears witness. Ecstasy and enlightenment, inspiration and intuition are not necessary. Happy is the man who is worthy of these; but woe unto us if we wait for such experiences; woe unto us if we do not perceive that these things are of secondary importance.
-- Karl Barth

One ought to seek out virtue for its own sake, without being influenced by fear or hope, or by any external influence. Moreover, that in that does happiness consist.
-- Diogenes Laertius, Zeno

You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy.

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

Seek to do good, and you will find that happiness will run after you.

I think I began learning long ago that those who are happiest are those who do the most for others.
