Our Happiness Depends On Wisdom All The Way.
~ Sophocles
But What Is Happiness Except The Simple Harmony Between A Man And The Life He Leads.
~ Albert Camus
You Say That My Way Of Thinking Cannot Be Tolerated? What Of It? The Man Who Alters His Way Of Thinking To Suit Others Is A Fool. My Way Of Thinking Is The Result Of My Reflections. It Is Part Of My Inner Being, The Way I Am Made. I Do Not Contradict Them, And Would Not Even If I Wished To. For My System, Which You Disapprove Of, Is Also My Greatest Comfort In Life, The Source Of All My Happiness --- It Means More To Me Than My Life Itself.
~ Marquis de Sade
There Is A Difference Between Happiness And Wisdom: He That Thinks Himself The Happiest Man Is Really So; But He That Thinks Himself The Wisest Is Generally The Greatest Fool.

~ Jane Austen

Humanity Does Not Ask Us To Be Happy. It Merely Asks Us To Be Brilliant On Its Behalf. Survival First, Then Happiness As We Can Manage It.

The Greatest Happiness Of Life It The Conviction That We Are Loved -- Loved For Ourselves, Or Rather, Loved In Spite Of Ourselves.
