Happiness is not a station you arrive at, but a manner of traveling.
We all want happiness for our children, but they don`t have to be happy about everything all the time. Life must include sadness, and there`s peace and truth to be found in sadness. The best times are not always the happiest times, but the times spent in the flow, the times spent getting things done, the times spent living.
Men always forget that human happiness is a disposition of mind and not a condition of circumstances.
Nobody really cares if you're miserable, so you might as well be happy.
Laughter is the sun which drives winter from the human face.
I've learned that empowered thinking is a choice - a state of mind. It's the ability to enjoy a rose with no mind of the thorn. It's the ability to celebrate a life even though it has passed. It's seeing the flowers even during a rainstorm.
Happiness is not the absence of problems; it`s the ability to deal with them.
Happiness has to do with your mindset, not with outside circumstance.
Remember that there is an abundance of happiness that can be found in the smallest of places.
Allow yourself to enjoy each happy moment in your life.
Happiness, knowledge, not in another place but this place, not for another hour but this hour.
Live, and be happy, and make others so.
Maybe it`s just that paradise is more a state of mind than an actual place?
