Insightful happiness quotes

String of excited, fugitive, miscellaneous pleasures is not happiness; happiness resides in imaginative reflection and judgment, when the picture of one's life, or of human life, as it truly has been or is, satisfies the will, and is gladly accepted.
George Santayana

Happiness always looks small while you hold it in your hands, but let it go, and you learn at once how big and precious it is.

A world full of happiness is not beyond human power to create; the obstacles imposed by inanimate nature are not insuperable. The real obstacles lie in the heart of man, and the cure for these is a firm hope, informed and fortified by thought.
Bertrand Russell

we set our hearts too much upon anything, let us examine how happy they are, who already possess it.
François Duc de La Rochefoucauld
