Top Ten Quotes On Happiness


Happiness is a state of mind or a feeling that is characterized by contentment, love, satisfaction, joy or pleasure. Happiness is based on positive emotions and activities that regularly occur in a person’s life.

One of the most common barriers to happiness is getting caught up in a mad rush to impress others.  As a wise person once said, “Too many people spend money they haven’t earned, to buy things they don’t want, to impress people they don’t like.”  The following are some of the wisest observations about happiness:


“Rules for happiness: something to do, someone to love, something to hope for.”

-Immanuel Kant

“It is an illusion to think that more comfort means more happiness.  Happiness comes of the capacity to feel deeply, to enjoy simply, to think freely, to risk life, to be needed.”

-Storm Jameson

“Happiness is not a goal… it’s a by-product of a life well lived.”

–Eleanor Roosevelt


“People who love each other fully and truly are the happiest people in the world.  They may have little, they may have nothing, but they are happy people.  Everything depends on how we love one another.”

-Mother Teresa


“People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness.  Just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost.”

-H. Jackson Browne


“Happiness is not a matter of good fortune or worldly possessions.  It’s a mental attitude.  It comes from appreciating what we have, instead of being miserable about what we don’t have.  It’s so simple—yet so hard for the human mind to comprehend.”

-Bits & Pieces


 “Happiness consists in activity; such as the constitution of our nature; it is a running stream, and not a stagnant pool.”



 “Happiness is not a station you arrive at, but a manner of traveling.”

                        -Margaret Runbeck

“Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson



“The foolish person seeks happiness in the distance; the wise grows it under his feet.”

-James Openheim
