Realize that true happiness lies within you. Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside. Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.
Happiness has to do with your mindset, not with outside circumstance.
You’ll never find a rainbow if you’re looking down.
No one can have whatever he wants. What he can do is not want what he doesn’t have, and cheerfully enjoy what comes his way.
Look at children. Of course they may quarrel, but generally speaking they do not harbor ill feelings as much or as long as adults do. Most adults have the advantage of education over children, but what is the use of an education if they show a big smile while hiding negative feelings deep inside? Children dont usually act in such a manner. If they feel angry with someone, they express it, and then it is finished. They can still play with that person the following day.
His Holiness the Dahai Lama
Don’t waste time to get temporary happiness. Work hard to get permanent.
Happiness is not something ready made. it comes from your own actions.
