Happiness and Well-being
Happiness is not a goal; it is a by-product.
True happiness is virtue and virtue is predicated on knowledge and righteous conduct.
Abu Hamid al-Ghazali
“I know the joy of fishes in the river through my own joy, as I go walking along the same river.”
If one speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows one, like a shadow that never leaves.
I believe that the very purpose of our life is to seek happiness.
The Dalai Lama
What is the highest of all goods achievable by action… People say that it is happiness, and identify living well and doing well with being happy.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
