It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere.
Follow your honest convictions, and stay strong.
In learning to know other things, and other minds, we become more intimately acquainted with ourselves, and are to ourselves better worth knowing.
Philip Gilbert Hamilton
The happiest life is that which constantly exercises and educates what is best in us.
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.
Henry David Thoreau
Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.
The art of being wise is knowing what to overlook.
The man is happiest who lives from day to day and asks no more, garnering the simple goodness of life.
The happiness of life is made up of minute fractions—the little soon-forgotten charities of a kiss, a smile, a kind look, a heartfelt compliment in the disguise of a playful raillery, and the countless other infinitessimals of pleasurable thought and genial feeling.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
