Don’t spend all the happiness in your pocket.

The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding.

Morality is not the doctrine of how we may make ourselves happy, but how we may make ourselves worthy of happiness.

We have to embrace obstacles to reach the next stage of joy.

I’ve made an odd discovery. Every time I talk to a savant I feel quite sure that happiness is no longer a possibility. Yet when I talk with my gardener, I’m convinced of the opposite. – Bertrand Russell

Grief can take care of itself, but to get the full value of joy you must have somebody to divide it with. – Mark Twain
