Someday, somewhere – anywhere, unfailingly, you’ll find yourself, and that, and only that, can be the happiest or bitterest hour of your life.
You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.[Vous ne serez jamais heureux si vous continuez à rechercher en quoi consiste le bonheur. Vous ne vivrez jamais si vous recherchez le sens de la vie.]
Self-knowledge is no guarantee of happiness, but it is on the side of happiness and can supply the courage to fight for it.
You gotta try your luck at least once a day, because you could be going around lucky all day and not even know it.
Why does this magnificent applied science which saves work and makes life easier bring us so little happiness? The simple answer runs: Because we have not yet learned to make sensible use of it.
The greatest happiness that a lover can have is to sacrifice his life, not for the life, but for a smile or a tear from the being he loves.[Le plus grand bonheur d’un être qui aime est d’immoler son existence, je ne dis pas à l’existence, mais à un sourire, à une larme de l’être aimé.]
Next week shall begin my operations on my hat, on which you know my principal hopes of happiness depend.
