“I do not think we have a ‘right’ to happiness. If happiness happens, say thanks.”

– Marlene Dietrich

“If you wish to be happy,Eragon, Think not of what is to come nor of that which you have no control over but rather of the now and that which you are able to change.”

– Christopher Paolini

“Can a person steal happiness? Or is just another internal, infernal human trick?”

– Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

“Age does not make us childish, as some say; it finds us true children.”

– Goethe

“It is an illusion that youth is happy, an illusion of those who have lost it; but the young know they are wretched for they are full of the truthless ideal which have been instilled into them, and each time they come in contact with the real, they are bruised and wounded. It looks as if they were victims of a conspiracy; for the books they read, ideal by the necessity of selection, and the conversation of their elders, who look back upon the past through a rosy haze of forgetfulness, prepare them for an unreal life. They must discover for themselves that all they have read and all they have been told are lies, lies, lies; and each discovery is another nail driven into the body on the cross of life.”

– W. Somerset Maugham, Of Human Bondage

“Happy girls are the prettiest.”

– Audrey Hepburn

“She had never imagined she had the power to make someone else so happy. And not a magical power, either—a purely human one.”

– Cassandra Clare

“Happiness. Simple as a glass of chocolate or tortuous as the heart. Bitter. Sweet. Alive.”

– Joanne Harris, Chocolat

“So he tasted the deep pain that is reserved only for the strong, just as he had tasted for a little while the deep happiness.”

– F. Scott Fitzgerald, All the Sad Young Men
