Happiness is the experience of loving life

“If you are too busy to laugh, you are too busy.” – Proverb

“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature…. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” – Helen Keller

“Learn to let go. That is the key to happiness.” – Buddha

“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” – Dalai Lama

“It isn’t what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about it.” – Dale Carnegie

“People are unhappy when they get something too easily. You have to sweat – that’s the only moral they know.” – Dany Laferrière

“Happiness is the experience of loving life. Being happy is being in love with that momentary experience. And love is looking at someone or even something and seeing the absolute best in him/her or it. Love is happiness with what you see. So love and happiness really are the same thing…just expressed differently.” – Robert McPhillips

“Happiness is not an ideal of reason, but of imagination.” – Immanuel Kant

“Happiness is always the serendipitous result of looking for something else.” – Dr. Idel Dreimer

“The more people need to show they’re happy, the less they are.” – Maxime Lagacé

“You cannot protect yourself from sadness without protecting yourself from happiness.” – Jonathan Safran Foer

“Happiness is always a by-product. It is probably a matter of temperament, and for anything I know it may be glandular. But it is not something that can be demanded from life, and if you are not happy you had better stop worrying about it and see what treasures you can pluck from your own brand of unhappiness.” – Robertson Davies

“Generally speaking, the most miserable people I know are those who are obsessed with themselves; the happiest people I know are those who lose themselves in the service of others…By and large, I have come to see that if we complain about life, it is because we are thinking only of ourselves.” – Gordon B. Hinckley

“Ups and downs. Victories and defeats. Sadness and happiness. That’s the hardest but also the most satisfying kind of life.” – Maxime Lagacé

“When was the last time you paused and took a deep breath?” – Maxime Lagacé

“Of all ridiculous things the most ridiculous seems to me, to be busy — to be a man who is brisk about his food and his work.” – Søren Kierkegaard
