Quotes on Happiness

I have discovered that one of the main ways we rob ourselves of happiness in life is feeling like a victim.

Marci Shimoff

I believe that the very purpose of life is to be happy. From the very core of our being, we desire contentment. In my own limited experience I have found that the more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being.

Dalai Lama

Even when manipulated into a smiling expression, people feel better; when they scowl, the whole world seems to scowl back. so put on a happy face. Pretend optimism. Simulate outgoingness. Going through the motions can trigger the emotions.

David Myers, PhD

The seed of suffering in you may be strong, but don't wait until you have no more suffering before allowing yourself to be happy.
