Quote :: Happiness

"The secret of happiness is not in doing what one likes, but in liking what one does.” -James M. Barrie, Copyright 2004, INJOY, Leadership Wired Volume 7, Issue 8

 

“Happiness does not come from doing easy work but from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes after the achievement of a difficult task that demanded our best.” - Theodore Rubin, Copyright 2004, INJOY, Leadership Wired Volume 7, Issue 8

“Lead the life that will make you kindly and friendly to everyone about you, and you will be surprised what a happy life you will lead.” - Charles M. Schwab, Copyright 2004, INJOY, Leadership Wired Volume 7, Issue 8

"An individual who has no geniality about him had better be an undertaker, and bury the dead, for he will never succeed in influencing the living. I commend cheerfulness to all who would win souls; not levity and frothiness, but a genial, happy spirit. There are more flies caught with honey than with vinegar, and there will be more souls led to heaven by a man who wears heaven in his face than by one who bears death in his looks." – Charles Spurgeon

"Americans find difficulty very hard to take. They are inevitably looking for a happy ending. Perversely, I will not give the happy ending (in my stories). I think life is difficult and that’s that. I am not at all – absolutely not at all – interested in the pursuit of happiness. I am interested in pursuing a truth, and the truth often seems to be not happiness but its opposite." – Jamaica Kincaid (quoted in Utne Reader, Jan/Feb 1998, pg. 41

"If your happiness depends on what somebody else says or does, I guess you do have a problem." – Richard Bach
