happy

A Quote by William Wordsworth on happy, warrior, pain, compassionate, sacrifice, and wordsworth

It is the generous Spirit, who, when brought
Among the tasks of real life, hath wrought
Upon the plan that pleased his boyish thought:
Whose high endeavours are an inward light
That makes the path before him always bright:
Who, with a natural instinct to discern
What knowledge can perform, is diligent to learn;
Abides by this resolve, and stops not there,
But makes his moral being his prime care;
Who, doomed to go in company with Pain,
And Fear, and Bloodshed, miserable train!
Turns his necessity to glorious gain;
In face of these doth exercise a power
Which is our human nature's highest dower;
Controls them and subdues, transmutes, bereaves
Of their bad influence, and their good receives:
By objects, which might force the soul to abate
Her feeling, rendered more compassionate;
Is placable--because occasions rise
So often that demand such sacrifice;
More skilful in self-knowledge, even more pure,
As tempted more; more able to endure,
As more exposed to suffering and distress;
Thence, also, more alive to tenderness.

William Wordsworth (1770 - 1850)

If you want to remain always happy,
Always perfect and always fulfilled,
Then always keep inside your heart
A pocketful of sweet dreams.

If God told you exactly what it was you were to do, you would be happy doing it no matter what it was.   What you're doing is what God wants you to do. Be happy.

A Quote by Hermann Hesse on hesse, youth, age, happy, and sad

Age is a state of mind.
Youth and age exist only among the ordinary people.
All the more talented and exceptional of us;
are sometimes old,
just as we are sometimes happy,
and sometimes sad.

Hermann Hesse (1877 - 1962)

A Quote by unknown on child, taught, happy, love, fear, hatred, prejudice, taught, condition, world, good, and teachers

A child does not have to be taught how to be happy or the ways of love.  It is fear, hatred, and prejudice that have to be taught.  And from the condition of the world we can see that unfortunately there are some very good teachers.
