Aristotle concluded that the motive for everything we do is to find happiness. Yet there is a better way. You can simply be happy.
There is no way to happiness; happiness is the way.
Striving for happiness is counterproductive. The belief that happiness will be ours when certain obstacles are overcome is itself a certain obstacle to happiness.
The search for happiness is one of the chief sources of unhappiness.
What happiness you derive from attaining lofty goals is short-lived. Cherish what is already in your life and deep, lasting happiness is yours.
Yes, there is a Nirvanah; it is in leading your sheep to a green pasture, and in putting your child to sleep, and in writing the last line of your poem.
Happiness flows naturally and abundantly from a peaceful heart. All the happiness you could ever hope for is as close to you as your next breath.
We look everywhere for happiness, forgetting that it’s in our own little plot of land. We have our own acres of diamonds but we don’t know it.
