I can only think of one thing greater than being happy and that is to help another to be happy, too.
Comment: Note that in this quote 'being happy' is mentioned first. Happiness ‘wants’ to expand. That is its nature; it is the purpose of life. In the process of helping others be happy too, our own happiness expands and so does the happiness in the world.
You are forgiven for your happiness and your successes only if you generously consent to share them.
Comment: I find this a strange thought. Why should you be 'forgiven' for experiencing exactly what life is all about - being happy, experiencing happiness yourself. By being happy yourself you are in fact expanding the expression of happiness in life itself. There is no need to feel guilty about that, or to be forgiven for being what life itself urges from within you - the desire to experience happiness. Moreover, if one is truly feeling happy and successful, you don't need to be told to share it with others. That happens automatically. Unless I am missing something very profound here, I really can’t relate to this quote.
Quotes On Happiness - Page 8
No man can be happy without a friend, nor be sure of his friend till he is unhappy.
Comment: I have no experience that can verify the first part of this quote as being true or not. But to me it sounds a little too ‘definite’. I do feel that having a friend can add to one’s happiness; but I’m not convinced that you cannot be happy unless you have a friend. I can accept the second part more easily though, yet with some reservation. Most people prefer to be with someone who is happy. An unhappy person is not good company. A true friend will stay by you even when you’re unhappy. Nevertheless, I don’t really ‘connect’ with this quote overall. To me it feels like one of those sayings that some people say for the sake of saying a saying … if you get my drift.

Remember that happiness is a way of travel - not a destination.
Comment: This quote sounds trite at first glance, but it is actually quite profound. If we make happiness a destination we will never be happy in the only ‘place’ that happiness can be experienced - the present moment. Many people live their lives for the day in the future when they will be happy, or will be rich, or will have their ideal partner. That’s in the future, not in the ‘now’. And if we’re waiting to be happy in the future, as a destination to get to, then clearly we are not experiencing happiness now.
