A Quote by Robert Lewis Stevenson on happy, happiness, duty, and benefit

There is no duty we so much underrate as the duty of being happy.  By being happy we sow anonymous benefits upon the world.

A Quote by Neale Donald Walsch on love, happy, wisdome, happiness, wise, god, be, be god, conversations with god, and love project

There's nothing I have to have, there's nothing I have to do, and there's nothing I have to be, except exactly what I am being right now.
That does not mean that "having" and "doing" will be eliminated from your life. It means that  what you experience yourself having or doing will spring from your being - not lead you to it.
When you come from "happiness", you do certain things because you are happy - as opposed to the old paradigm in which you did things that you hoped would make you happy.
When you come from "wisdom", you do certain things because you are wise, not because you are trying to get to wisdom.
When you come from "love", you do certain things because you are love, not because you want to have love.

Everything changes; everything turns around, when you come from "being", rather than seeking to "be." You cannot "do" your way to "being". Whether you are trying to "be" happy, be wise, be love - or be God - you cannot "get there" by doing. And yet, it is true that you will be doing wonderful things once you "get there."

Here is the Divine Dichotomy. The way to "get there" is to "be there." Just be where you choose to get!
It's that simply. There's nothing you have to do. You want to be happy? Be happy. You want to be wise? Be wise. You want to be love?

Be love.

That is Who You Are in any event.

You are my Beloved.

Neale Donald Walsch

A Quote by Brian Tracy on happy, happiness, love, life, selfish, and rand

Being happy requires that you define your life in your own terms and then throw your whole heart into living your life to the fullest. In a way, happiness requires that you be perfectly selfish in order to develop yourself to a point where you can be unselfish for the rest of your life.

A Quote by Robin Sharma on pleasure, happy, happiness, and choice

Pleasure is great- but it doesn't last. Pleasure comes from your five senses. From a great meal, a nice glass of wine and a new car. Nothing wrong with these things- they make the experience of life better. But they are fleeeting...

Happiness is the DNA of pleasure. My point is simply this: Pleasure comes from something on the outside. Happiness comes from within. It's a state you create by choice. It's a decision. It's an act of will.

People can be happy while they are going through great pain and adversity. There's no pleasure evident in their external lives yet they are content on the inside. And conversely, tons of people are surrounded by pleasure (fast cars, nice homes, great clothes) but there is no joy within. So choose to be happy.
