A Handful On Happiness

Originally posted on November 13, 2011

Why not take a moment and meditate or contemplate on your happiness, especially if things aren’t going your way at the moment. 

“When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.”

Helen Keller

“Happiness does not consist in pastimes and amusements but in virtuous activities.” 


“Happiness resides not in posessions and not in gold; the feeling of happiness dwells in the soul.”


“The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts; therefore guard accordingly.”

Marcus Aurelius

“People with many interests live, not only longest, but happiest.”

George Matthew Allen

“In the hopes of reaching the moon men fail to see the flowers that blossom at their feet.”

Albert Schweitzer

“Happiness is not achieved by the conscious pursuit of happiness; it is generally the by-product of other activities.”

Aldous Huxley

Jonathan Harnisch
