Thoughts on Happiness

"Happiness is the absence of striving for happiness" -- Chuang-tzu

"Happiness consists more in small conveniences of pleasures that occur everyday, than in great pieces of good fortune that happen but seldom to a man in the course of his life." -- Ben Franklin (1706-1790)

Happiness is inside us, in our minds, in our thoughts. It is not external material things or experiences, but the enjoyment of our thoughts and feelings. This is good because our thoughts, and therefore our happiness, are up to us.

Happiness is not a destination. It is a method of life. This is a quote by Burton Hills and I firmly believe in it. Yours is a nice blog.

Happiness cannot come from without. It must come from within. It is not what we see and touch or that which others do for us which makes us happy; it is that which we think and feel and do, first for the other fellow and then for ourselves.
