Thinking about happiness - that bright, exotic bird that we all think we see through the foliage almost always out of reach - I asked everyone in time and space to explain it to me. They did. I promise, from this day forth, to stop thinking about it, since it is something I already have.
See for yourself:

Eden is that old-fashioned house we dwell in every day without suspecting our abode until we drive away.~Emily Dickinson

The art of living does not consist in preserving and clinging to a particular mode of happiness, but in allowing happiness to change its form without being disappointed by the change; happiness, like a child, must be allowed to grow up. ~Charles L. Morgan

Unhappiness is not knowing what we want and killing ourselves to get it. ~Don Herold
Happiness is... usually attributed by adults to children, and by children to adults. ~Thomas Szasz

"Well," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called. ~A.A. Milne

The Constitution only guarantees the American people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself. ~Benjamin Franklin
