No one should ever ask themselves that: Why am I unhappy? The question carries within it the virus that will destroy every thing. If we ask the question, it means we want to find out what makes us happy. If what makes us happy is different from what we have now, then we must either change once and for all or stay as we are, feeling even more unhappy.
One is happy as a result of one’s efforts once one knows the necessary ingredients of happiness: simple tastes, a certain degree of courage, self-denial to a point, love of work, and above all, a clear conscience.
Happiness is the settling of the soul into its most appropriate spot.
Happiness is not achieved by the conscious pursuit of happiness; it is generally the by-product of other activities.
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
