Happiness

A Quote by Alexander Pope on happiness, money, and time

False happiness is like false money; it passes for a time as well as the true, and serves some ordinary occasions; but when it is brought to the touch, we find the lightness and alloy, and feel the loss.

Alexander Pope (1688 - 1744)

A Quote by Baron Friedrich Heinrich Alexander von Humboldt on happiness, life, nature, and unhappiness

I am more and more convinced that our happiness or unhappiness depends far more on the way we meet the events of life, than on the nature of those events themselves.

A Quote by Alex Doherty on departure, god, guidance, happiness, heart, people, power, prayer, strength, and work

Orchards Smiling through departed leaves, Like diamond sapphires in evening sun Hang ripening fruit and from the eaves Grey sparrows make unending run, Oh happy land, Bless thy fertile soil, Oh happy people born to work and prayer, With God to guide and strength to toil, With heart and help goes will and power.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on ambition, children, day, future, happiness, joy, life, play, spirit, and work

I feel that you are justified in looking into the future with true assurance, because you have a mode of living in which we find the joy of life and the joy of work harmoniously combined. Added to this is the spirit of ambition which pervades your very being, and seems to make the day's work like a happy child at play.

A Quote by Albert Camus on blindness, brothers, day, execution, happiness, hope, indifference, time, wishes, and world

As if that blind rage had washed me clean, rid me of hope; for the first time, in that night alive with signs and stars, I opened myself to the gentle indifference of the world. Finding it so much like myself - so like a brother, really - I felt that I had been happy and that I was happy again. For everything to be consummated, for me to feel less alone, I had only to wish that there be a large crowd of spectators the day of my execution and that they greet me with cries of hate.
