Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.
Happiness depends upon ourselves.
The most important thing is to enjoy your life—to be happy—it’s all that matters.

We begin from the recognition that all beings cherish happiness and do not want suffering.

Milk is the symbol of the first aspect of love, that of care and affirmation. Honey symbolizes the sweetness of life, the love for it and the happiness in being alive. Most mothers are capable of giving “milk”, but only a minority of giving “honey” too. In order to be able to give honey, a mother must not only be a “good mother”, but a happy person.
Man only likes to count his troubles; he doesn’t calculate his happiness.
No medicine cures what happiness cannot.
Gabriel García Márquez
Knowledge of what is possible is the beginning of happiness.
Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.
How would you know what happy is if you’ve never been otherwise.
Malcolm S. Forbes

Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation, and freedom in all just pursuits.
