“Nothing guarantees happiness. I’m not certain happiness should be the goal. Satisfaction, maybe. A sense of purpose. Contribution. Authenticity. Happiness? It’s a lightweight goal. And meanwhile, I suspect that turning away from yourself will guarantee the opposite of happiness.”
Danielle Younge-Ullman, Everything Beautiful Is Not Ruined

Orhan Pamuk
“But we should search for the strange and surprising in the world, not within ourselves! To search within, to think so long and hard about our own selves, would only make us unhappy.

Orhan Pamuk, The White Castle

“If you can’t be happy about everything, then just be happy about something, or some thing. Surely there is one thing in your life, at the very least, that you are happy about— perhaps as simple as being happy you have the ability to read these words and understand the concept proposed.

Some people are happy at just being alive. I know I am. It sure beats the alternative.”
Rob Kozak, Finding Fatherhood

“There are no happy endings in real life. A person's story doesn't suddenly end when something good happens. If you get married, that's not a happy ending. It's the happy beginning of your next chapter together.

Ultimately every life is a tragedy that ends in death and grief. Grief is the price we pay for love. But along the way, there are some precious moments of happiness. And it's those fleeting moments that make life worth living.”
Oliver Markus Malloy, Bad Choices Make Good Stories - Finding Happiness in Los Angeles

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
“The best moments in our lives are not the passive, receptive, relaxing times - although such experiences can also be enjoyable, if we have worked hard to attain them. The best moments usually occur when a person's body or mind is stretched to its limits in a voluntary effort to accomplish something difficult and worthwhile.”

Mehmet Murat ildan

“Happiness" alone does not guarantee mental health and well-being. A tempering dose of disappointment- an occasional taste of frustration and learning that you do recover from it- goes a long way toward producing long-term contentment. Indeed the ability to ride out the bad times without feeling doomed is essential to survival. When happiness is not taken for granted, and when one is acquainted with its opposite it is more easily savored and has more lasting effects.”
Victoria Secunda, Women and Their Fathers: The Sexual and Romantic Impact of the First Man in Your Life

Jeanette Winterson
“Pursuing happiness, and I did, and still do, is not at all the same thing as being happy - which I think is fleeting, dependent on circumstances, and a bit bovine...The pursuit of happiness is more elusive; it is life-long, and it is not goal-centered.

What you are pursuing is meaning - a meaningful life...There are times when it will go so wrong that you will barely be alive, and times when you realise that being barely alive, on your own terms, is better than living a bloated half-life on someone else's terms.”
Jeanette Winterson, Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?

“Our heart purrs like a kitten when we are in love.”
Anthony T. Hincks

“Let me tell you a BIG secret – THE secret that many do not know about happiness. Happiness is not something some people have and others do not; happiness is a practice – a skill that you get better at by practicing positive and empowering thoughts, daily. The simple reason why so many are traveling a dirt road towards happiness is because they practice the opposite every day: anger, hate, sadness, sorrow, loneliness, etc.”
Jellis Vaes

“The moral of the story is that seeking truth, rather than fear of pain or the desire for happiness, is the correct orientation toward inner work, since seeking happiness makes you its prisoner just as surely as does pain.”
Sandra Maitri, The Enneagram of Passions and Virtues: Finding the Way Home

Mimi Novic
“A grateful heart sees a glimpse of heaven in everything”
Mimi Novic, Guidebook to Your Heart

C. JoyBell C.
“Living in happiness means practicing the dance of "detachment-attachment". On a daily basis, we must sense which moments, which events, which people, thoughts and circumstances to detach ourselves from; and which ones to attach ourselves to. Learning this dance, and doing it well, leads to happiness.”
C. JoyBell C.
