“ The sense pleasures yield fleeting happiness but shut off the manifestation of the subtle, more pure and lasting enjoyments ”
Happiness is not mere pleasure, not the outcome of wealth. It is the result of active work rather than passive enjoyment of pleasure.
Only when one pleasure after another fails him does man finally begin to wonder if, after all, happiness is possible through the senses. This thought has a liberating effect
The pleasure isn't in doing the thing, the pleasure is in planning it.
Harmony with nature will bring you a happiness known to few city dwellers. In the company of other truth seekers, it will be easier for you to meditate and think of God
Know your own happiness. You want nothing but patience- or give it a more fascinating name, call it hope.
