"Happiness does not consist in pastimes and amusements but in virtuous activities." Aristotle

"People with many interests live, not only longest, but happiest."

"The happiness of life is made up of minute fractions—the little soon-forgotten charities of a kiss, a smile, a kind look, a heartfelt compliment in the disguise of a playful raillery, and the countless other infinitesimals of pleasurable thought and genial feeling." Samuel Taylor Coleridge

"Who is the happiest of men? He who values the merits of others, and in their pleasure takes joy, even as though 'twere his own." Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

"Happiness is not a matter of events, it depends upon the tides of the mind."
Alice Meynell

"There is only one way to happiness, and that is to cease worrying things which are beyond the power of our will."
Epictetus

"You're happiest while you're making the greatest contribution."
Robert F. Kennedy

"The rays of happiness, like those of light, are colorless when unbroken."
Henry W. Longfellow

Albert Camus

Thank you for following. I have added you to my "What the followers have to say" blog roll on my blog.

Don't know if this relates to happiness, but here's one of mine:

Some people play the game of life to win. But the lovers of life play for fun— and win anyway.

Thanks for stopping by,

I just love these and my favorite is the one where it basically says happiness is a state of mind. There is a lot of truth to that.

You took yesterday off! Good for you!!!
