– Steve Maraboli

“I learned you pay for your happiness. That’s why I don’t expect to be happy all the time. I’d rather be surprised by one moment every so often to remind me that joy is possible, even if I have to pay for it later.”

– Esmeralda Santiago

“Today, just take time to smell the roses, enjoy those little things about your life, your family, spouse, friends, job. Forget about the thorns -the pains and problems they cause you - and enjoy life.”

– Bernard Kelvin Clive

“The only way to avoid being miserable is not to have enough leisure to wonder whether you are happy or not.”

– George Bernard Shaw

“I cannot tell if what the world considers ‘happiness’ is happiness or not. All I know is that when I consider the way they go about attaining it, I see them carried away headlong, grim and obsessed, in the general onrush of the human herd, unable to stop themselves or to change their direction. All the while they claim to be just on the point of attaining happiness.”

– Zhuangzi

“Success is getting what you want. Happiness is wanting what you get.”

– Dale Carnegie

“Paradise was always over there, a day’s sail away. But it’s a funny thing, escapism. You can go far and wide and you can keep moving on and on through places and years, but you never escape your own life. I, finally, knew where my life belonged. Home.”

– J. Maarten Troost

“Why should we build our happiness on the opinons of others, when we can find it in our own hearts?”

– Jean-Jacques Rousseau

“Happiness can only be achieved by looking inward & learning to enjoy whatever life has and this requires transforming greed into gratitude.”

– John Chrysostom

“Learn to love someone when they least deserve it, because that is when they need your love most.”

– Rodolfo Costa
