“ But maybe happiness isn't in the choosing. Maybe it's in the fiction, in the pretending: that wherever we have ended up is where we intended to be all along. ”
Happiness is attained by three things: being patient when tested, being thankful when receiving a blessing, and being repentant upon sinning.
Do not set aside your happiness. Do not wait to be happy in the future. The best time to be happy is always now.
Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.
Seize the moments of happiness, love and be loved! That is the only reality in the world, all else is folly. It is the one thing we are interested in here.
Happiness is not mere pleasure, not the outcome of wealth. It is the result of active work rather than passive enjoyment of pleasure.
