happiness
Happiness is a conscious choice, not an automatic response.

Happiness grows at our own firesides, and is not to be picked in strangers' gardens.

Success is getting and achieving what you want. Happiness is wanting and being content with what you get."

Act happy, feel happy, be happy, without a reason in the world. Then you can love, and do what you will.

Until you make peace with who you are, you'll never be content with what you have.

Tis easy enough to be pleasant,
When life flows along like a song;
But the man worth while is the one who will smile
When everything goes dead wrong.

Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better to take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.

A happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances, but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes.

We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.

Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.

Happiness does not come from doing easy work but from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes after the achievement of a difficult task that demanded our best.

You can complain because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because thorns have roses.

Happiness adds and multiplies, as we divide it with others.

The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved - loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.

Happiness is good health and a bad memory.

Watch your manner of speech if you wish to develop a peaceful state of mind. Start each day by affirming peaceful, contented and happy attitudes and your days will tend to be pleasant and successful.

They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world. Someone to love, something to do and something to hope for.

The best way for a person to have happy thoughts is to count his blessings and not his cash There is no goal better than this one: to know as you lie on your deathbed that you lived your true life, and you did whatever made you happy.

Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect. It means you have decided to look beyond the imperfections.

    good one : ) "It is precisely the pursuit of happiness which prevents happiness from happening and, until this realisation happens, the pursuit must go on."
    According to Sri Krishna in Bhagwat Gita: by giving up desires for worldly things — when a person can detach himself from identification with body, things and persons — he attains peace and happiness.
