By Albert Camus
Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.
Karma moves in two directions. If we act virtuously, the seed we plant will result in happiness. If we act non-virtuously, suffering results.
Happiness is: Watching someone get what they deserve.
My happiness is not the means to any end. It is the end. It is its own goal. It is its own purpose.
Learn to value yourself, which means: fight for your happiness.
The ladder of success is best climbed by stepping on the rungs of opportunity.
Achievement of your happiness is the only moral purpose of your life, and that happiness, not pain or mindless self-indulgence, is the proof of your moral integrity, since it is the proof and the result of your loyalty to the achievement of your values.
Happiness is that state of consciousness which proceeds from the achievement of one’s values.
It is too much to hope that I shall keep up my success. I don’t ask for that. All I shall do is my best – and hope.
Success is like reaching an important birthday and finding you’re exactly the same.
In Holland and Belgium, and afterwards in England, my happiest moments were in the country. I’ve always had a passion for the outdoors, for trees, for birds and flowers.
The most important thing is to enjoy your life – to be happy – it’s all that matters.
I heard a definition once: Happiness is health and a short memory! I wish I’d invented it, because it is very true.
I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and… I believe in miracles.
I have to be alone very often. I’d be quite happy if I spent from Saturday night until Monday morning alone in my apartment. That’s how I refuel.
We, humans, are so tortured by not properly guessing what will make us happy.
I worry there is something broken in our generation, there are too many sad eyes on happy faces.
India helped Bangladesh to achieve independence. The Bangladeshis should remain happy inside the territory of their own country.
The greatest of follies is to sacrifice health for any other kind of happiness.
What a man is contributes much more to his happiness than what he has or how he is regarded by others.
