* How simple and frugal a thing is happiness: a glass of wine, a roast chestnut, a wretched little brazier, the sound of the sea. . . . All that is required to feel that here and now is happiness is a simple, frugal heart.
>> Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek (1946)




* Happiness is not an island, but a hill.
>> George Catlin

* I shall take the heart... for brains do not make one happy, and happiness is the best thing in the world.
>> The Tinman in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900) by L. Frank Baum

* Happiness depends, as Nature shows,
Less on exterior things than most suppose."
-  William Cowper in Table Talk (1817) line 246

* The nicest Thing about being Happy is that You think You'll never be Unhappy Again
>> Luis Molina in Kiss of The Spider Woman

* Most people measure their happiness in terms of physical pleasure and material possession. Could they win some visible goal which they have set on the horizon, how happy they could be! Lacking this gift or that circumstance, they would be miserable. If happiness is to be so measured, I who cannot hear or see have every reason to sit in a corner with folded hands and weep. If I am happy in spite of my deprivations, if my happiness is so deep that it is a faith, so thoughtful that it becomes a philosophy of life, — if, in short, I am an optimist, my testimony to the creed of optimism is worth hearing.
>> Helen Keller in Optimism (1903)
