What goes around comes back around.
Karma moves in two directions. If we act virtuously, the seed we plant will result in happiness. If we act non-virtuously, suffering results.
When a bird is alive, it eats ants. When bird dies, ants eat it. One tree can be made into million matchsticks but only one matchstick is enough to burn million trees. Circumstances can change at any time. You may be powerful today but time is more powerful than you.
You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
The people who fight fire with fire, usually end up with ashes.
Happiness is: Watching someone get what they deserve.
The axe forgets, but the tree remembers.
Realize that everything connects to everything else.
What you do not want done to yourself, do not do to others.
What seems to be coming at you is really coming from you.
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.
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.
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.
