Most people have never
that one of the main aims in life is to
Ramona L. Anderson
People spend a lifetime searching for
happiness; looking for peace. They chase idle dreams, addictions,
religions, even other people, hoping to fill the emptiness that
plagues them. The irony is
the only place they ever needed to search was within.
Learn to enjoy every minute of
now. Don't wait for something outside of
yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is
the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family.
Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.
Dalai Lama of Tibet, the 14th
The fact that there is always a positive
side to life is the one thing that gives me a lot of happiness. This
world is not perfect. There are problems. But things like
unhappiness are relative. Realising this gives you hope.
Even the most mundane objects
are things of wonder, if we stop to look at them, and the fact that we
are alive is the biggest wonder of all.
The Secret of Happiness: Keep smiling at

Wolfgang von Goethe

Ralph Waldo Emerson

others, on the improvement of mankind, even on some art or pursuit,
followed not as a means, but as itself the ideal end. Aiming thus at
something else, they find happiness by the way.
Success is not the key to happiness.
Happiness is the key to success. If you
love what you are doing, you
will be successful.
Since you get more
joy out of giving
joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the
happiness that you are able to give.
