The Constitution only guarantees the American people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself.
You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.
Happiness is your dentist telling you it won't hurt and then having him catch his hand in the drill.
The best way for a person to have happy thoughts is to count his blessings and not his cash.
The pursuit of happiness is a most ridiculous phrase: if you pursue happiness you'll never find it.
People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they're not on your road doesn't mean they've gotten lost.
-H. Jackson Browne
Happiness is the resultant of the relative strengths of positive and negative feelings rather than an absolute amount of one or the other.
You need to learn to be happy by nature, because you'll seldom have the chance to be happy by circumstance.
-Lavetta Sue Wegman
If you ever find happiness by hunting for it, you will find it, as the old woman did her lost spectacles, safe on her own nose all the time.
Those who can laugh without cause have either found the true meaning of happiness or have gone stark raving mad.
Plenty of people miss their share of happiness, not because they never found it, but because they didn't stop to enjoy it.
