Here are some more happiness quotations for your pleasure. Enjoy!
Happiness cannot be travelled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.
Comment: Yes, I can connect with quote. It begs the question, however: how does one live every minute with love, grace and gratitude? And I think that is the challenge that most people have – making that experience a real one in their daily lives. This Website and its offerings will hopefully shed some useful light on that aspect of the happiness matter. But I totally agree that happiness cannot be travelled to, because it isn’t ‘out there’. Its home is inside us, and that too is where we experience it. Sure, wearing something, earning something and consuming something that we enjoy will give us a happiness boost, but it will never be the source of happiness and will not be a sustained state of happiness – rather more like a wave of happiness on the ocean of happiness.

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Individual life is the fundamental unit of the cosmos. If the purpose of the individual life is served, automatically and simultaneously the purpose of cosmic life is served to the same degree.
If a man has fulfilled the purpose of his life he has done his best to help the cosmic purpose, for the evolution of the cosmos is basically served by the evolution of the individual life.
If a man is unhappy he has missed the very essence of life. If his intelligence, power, creativity, peace and happiness are not constantly developing, he has lost his direction. Life is not meant to be lived in dullness, idleness and suffering; these do not belong to the essential nature of life.Life is dynamic, not static. It is energetic, progressing, evolving and developing through activity and multiplying itself.
Comment: Wow! I felt I couldn’t leave any of this out. It just clarifies things so beautifully.

Franklin D. Roosevelt
Happiness is not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.
Comment: I particularly like the last phrase in this quote: in the thrill of creative effort. I believe we are here to expand happiness, and a key element of that lies in the conscious act of creating. I’m not meaning simply creating a big bank balance, or creating a bench from wood, a saw and some screws. I’m talking about creating in one’s mind, projecting it outwards and then seeing it manifest – in any sphere of life. There’s an expression: Thoughts become things. And this occurs whether we know it or not, whether we think our thoughts deliberately or just let our thoughts run our mind without conscious direction. Our predominant thoughts do create. The happiness part comes when what we have created is to our liking; and better still, exactly what we intended.
