A man's as miserable as he thinks he is.
We all want to be happy. But for many of us, happiness is an elusive, fleeting state that we can capture only for a brief moment, before it floats away like dust in the wind.
The truth is that as human beings, almost all of our forward momentum is driven by the pursuit of happiness. Even the desire to socialize, to love, and to connect with other human beings is driven by our desire to be happy. The pursuit of better jobs, higher status, more wealth – the root of everything we’re chasing is happiness.
This certainly doesn’t mean that everything we chase WILL bring us happiness. In fact, a big part of our struggle with life is figuring out what makes us happy, and perhaps more importantly, what makes us consistently happy.
We can learn about the nature of happiness by reading quotes about happiness from the wise men and women who came before us. Here are some quotes about being happy to help you find your own path to joy and satisfaction in life.
