Now and then it's good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.

It is not in the pursuit of happiness that we find fulfillment, it is in the happiness of pursuit.
Love life and life will love you back. Love people and they will love you back.
Immature love says: I love you because I need you. Mature love says: I need you because I love you.
There is no such thing as a lack of faith. We all have plenty of faith, it's just that we have faith in the wrong things. We have faith in what can't be done rather than what can be done. We have faith in lack rather than abundance but there is no lack of faith. Faith is a law.
Melancholy and sadness are the start of doubt... doubt is the beginning of despair; despair is the cruel beginning of the differing degrees of wickedness.
The surest defense against Evil is extreme individualism, originality of thinking, whimsicality, even -- if you will -- eccentricity. That is, something that can't be feigned, faked, imitated; something even a seasoned imposter couldn't be happy with.
That so few now dare to be eccentric, marks the chief danger of the time.
The amount of eccentricity in a society has generally been proportional to the amount of genius, mental vigor, and moral courage it contained. That so few now dare to be eccentric marks the chief danger of the time.
Our faith is faith in someone else's faith, and in the greatest matters this is most the case.
If you desire faith, then you have faith enough.
A person consists of his faith. Whatever is his faith, even so is he.
Skepticism, riddling the faith of yesterday, prepared the way for the faith of tomorrow.
Fear cannot be without hope nor hope without fear.
Of all the forces that make for a better world, none is so indispensable, none so powerful, as hope. Without hope men are only half alive. With hope they dream and think and work.
I would rather entertain and hope that people learned something than educate people and hope they were entertained.
The natural flights of the human mind are not from pleasure to pleasure, but from hope to hope.
Eccentricity has always abounded when and where strength of character has abounded; and the amount of eccentricity in a society has generally been proportional to the amount of genius, mental vigor, and moral courage which it contained.
Do not fear to be eccentric in opinion, for every opinion now accepted was once eccentric.
Friendship is to be purchased only by friendship. A man may have authority over others, but he can never have their hearts but by giving his own.
Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.
Love is an ideal thing, marriage a real thing; a confusion of the real with the ideal never goes unpunished.
The mystic purchases a moment of exhilaration with a lifetime of confusion; and the confusion is infectious and destructive. It is confusing and destructive to try and explain anything in terms of anything else, poetry in terms of psychology.
Four things a man must learn to doIf he would make his record true:To think without confusion clearly;To love his fellow-men sincerely;To act from honest motives purely;To trust in God and Heaven securely.
One should not confuse the craving for life with endorsement of it.
The first element of greatness is fundamental humbleness (this should not be confused with servility); the second is freedom from self; the third is intrepid courage, which, taken in its widest interpretation, generally goes with truth; and the fourth --the power to love --although I have put it last, is the rarest.
No man can fight his way to the top and stay at the top without exercising the fullest measure of grit, courage, determination, resolution. Every man who gets anywhere does so because he has first firmly resolved to progress in the world and then has enough stick-to-it-tiveness to transform his resolution into reality. Without resolution, no man can win any worthwhile place among his fellow men.
The real people of genius were resolute workers not idle dreamers.
Precious beyond price are good resolutions. Valuable beyond price are good feelings.
It shows a brave and resolute spirit not to be agitated in exciting circumstances.
If I feel depressed I will sing. If I feel sad I will laugh. If I feel ill I will double my labor. If I feel fear I will plunge ahead. If I feel inferior I will wear new garments. If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice. If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come. If I feel incompetent I will think of past success. If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals. Today I will be the master of my emotions.
I feel bad that I don't feel worse.
Do not, on a rainy day, ask your child what he feels like doing, because I assure you that what he feels like doing, you won't feel like watching.
Hope is the feeling you have that the feeling you have isn't permanent.
You are more likely to act yourself into feelings, than feel yourself into action.
Friendships that have stood the test of time and chance are surely best, Brows may wrinkle, hair grow gray, Friendship never knows decay.
