Happiness

A Quote by Alfred Edward Newton on confidence, happiness, home, life, love, and world

If this world affords true happiness, it is to be found in a home where love and confidence increase with the years, where the necessities of life come without severe strain, where luxuries enter only after their cost has been carefully considered.

A Quote by Alexander Solzhenitsyn on achievement, affection, direction, happiness, and people

One should never direct people towards happiness, because happiness too is an idol of the market-place. One should direct them towards mutual affection. A beast gnawing at its prey can be happy too, but only human beings can feel affection for each other, and this is the highest achievement they can aspire to.
