Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Sanchita Pandey
#1. What is one common thing every one craves for? It is love... Love others unconditionally, honestly and truthfully. When you fill your being with love, you make yourself healthier and happier. #Quote by Sanchita Pandey
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Albert Camus
#2. It is not humiliating to be unhappy. Physical suffering is sometimes humiliating, but the suffering of being cannot be, it is life. #Quote by Albert Camus
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Lydia Davis
#3. It is not easy to live with another person, at least it is not easy for me. It makes me realize how selfish I am. It has not been easy for me to love another person either, though I am getting better at it. I can be gentle for as long as a month at a time now, before I become selfish again. I used to try to study what it meant to love someone. I would write down quotations from the works of famous writers, writers who did not interest me otherwise, like Hippolyte Taine or Alfred de Musset. For instance, Taine said that to love is to make one's goal the happiness of another person. I would try to apply this to my own situation. But if loving a person meant putting him before myself, how could I do that? There seemed to be three choices: to give up trying to love anyone, to stop being selfish, or to learn how to love a person while continuing to be selfish. I did not think I could manage the first two, but I thought I could learn how to be just unselfish enough to love someone at least part of the time. #Quote by Lydia Davis
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Robin Hobb
#4. That no man can truly imagine being happy and that's why happiness isn't for sale here. #Quote by Robin Hobb
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Shawn Achor
#5. Turns out, there was one - and only one - characteristic that distinguished the happiest 10 percent from everybody else: the strength of their social relationships. My empirical study of well-being among 1,600 Harvard undergraduates found a similar result - social support was a far greater predictor of happiness than any other factor, more than GPA, family income, SAT scores, age, gender, or race. In fact, the correlation between social support and happiness was 0.7. This may not sound like a big number, but for researchers it's huge - most psychology findings are considered significant when they hit 0.3. The point is, the more social support you have, the happier you are. And as we know, the happier you are, the more advantages you accrue in nearly every domain of life. #Quote by Shawn Achor
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Avinash Advani
#6. The Commitment of being happiness as well willingness makes the feasible from Impossible #Quote by Avinash Advani
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Daniel Kahneman
#7. One reason for the low correlations between individuals' circumstances and their satisfaction with life is that both experienced happiness and life satisfaction are largely determined by the genetics of temperament. A disposition for well-being is as heritable as height or intelligence, as demonstrated by studies of twins separated at birth. #Quote by Daniel Kahneman
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Bikram Dhillon
#8. Still, happiness will depend on conditions favoring it. Lose those conditions and you lose your happiness. So, if your ability to affect happiness is so limited, the question becomes this - is happiness, then, really worthy of being the ultimate goal of life?" I'd #Quote by Bikram Dhillon
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Nisargadatta Maharaj
#9. Love is not selective, desire is selective. In love there are no strangers. When the centre of selfishness is no longer, all desires for pleasure and fear of pain cease; one is no longer interested in being happy; beyond happiness there is pure intensity, inexhaustible energy, the ecstasy of giving from a perennial source. #Quote by Nisargadatta Maharaj
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Hannah Whitall Smith
#10. There is no happiness in the world equal to the happiness of being good. #Quote by Hannah Whitall Smith
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#11. I reached maturity under the impression that I was gathering the experience to order my life for happiness. Indeed, I accomplished the not unusual feat of solving each question in my mind long before it presented itself to me in life - and of being beaten and bewildered just the same. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#12. Good music makes a happy life. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Steve Maraboli
#13. Let Love Move You ...
If you can't stop thinking of her, it's because her essence has left an imprint on your heart ... on your soul ...
Don't be afraid of this feeling; be nourished by it ...
Let it stir your entire being ...
Let it help release your greatest self ...
Let it inspire you to be loving ... to be respectful ... to be romantic ... to be intelligent ... to be passionate ... to be a good listener ... to be appreciative ...
Let this wonderful feeling move you to become a passionate love maker ... a ravenous seducer ...
Do not be afraid of this deep love! Let it reveal the best of you ...
Let this feeling encourage you to behave in an honest and sincere manner ...
So that you may be more than a person she would settle for ... so that you may be a person she would yearn for. #Quote by Steve Maraboli
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Leigh Hershkovich
#14. If you're not happy, then something is wrong. A person comes into the world as a happy being, yet over time, the happiness fades away and they find themselves in this bubble of anxiety and misery all the time. And it's a comfortable place to stay, so they end up hanging out in this bubble for years and years before it suddenly dawns on them that life is meant to be happy. And, it is. It's just that they're too busy getting caught up in worry and stress to notice that life is magnificent and beautiful. Being alive is good. Being alive should already make you happy. #Quote by Leigh Hershkovich
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Orhan Pamuk
#15. Happiness means being close to the one you love, that's all. (Taking immediate possession is not necessary.) #Quote by Orhan Pamuk
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Ruth Reichl
#16. Every restaurant is a theater, and the truly great ones allow us to indulge in the fantasy that we are rich and powerful. When restaurants hold up their end of the bargain, they give us the illusion of being surrounded by servants intent on ensuring our happiness and offering extraordinary food.
But even modest restaurants offer the opportunity to become someone else, at least for a little while. Restaurants free us from mundane reality; that is part of their charm. When you walk through the door, you are entering neutral territory where you are free to be whoever you choose for the duration of the meal. #Quote by Ruth Reichl
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Sophy Burnham
#17. No one who has seen an angel ever mistakes it for a ghost. Angels are remarkable for their warmth and light, and all who see them speak in awe of their irridescent and refulgent light, of brilliant colors, or else of the unbearable whiteness of their being. You are flooded with laughter, happiness. #Quote by Sophy Burnham
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#18. I have lived through much and now I think I have found what is needed for happiness. A quiet, secluded life in the country with possibility of being useful to people. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Swami Dhyan Giten
#19. Be truthful to yourself. You do not need to change anybody else. If you can grow yourself that is enough. To be authentic means to be true to your own being.
Always listen to your inner voice, otherwise your whole life will be wasted. Don't allow anybody else to try to manipulate and control you. To be authentic menas to be true to oneself. Truth means the authenticity of being, not imposing anything that you are not. Truth means not to pretend, just be whatsover you are. It is to be authentic, true and respectful to your own soul. Risk everything for truth, otherwise you will remain discontented. Even a single moment of authentcity is better than a whole life of inauthentic living. Love is only possible with the truth. Love has to be lived, otherwise your life will be futile. Risk everything for truth. Never risk truth for anything else. Then tremendous happiness will be yours. Once you are true, everything becomes possible.
It is not always easy to be true to oneself, but whenever people do it they achieve such beauty, grace and contentment. Always listen to the inner voice, and don't listen to anything else. The world is a supermarket, and everybody is interersted in selling things to you. The society wants to make you a hypocrite. Just close your eyes and listen to the inner voice. That is what meditation is all about, to listen to the inner voice. #Quote by Swami Dhyan Giten
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Paulo Coelho
#20. My sadness has become so routine that no one notices anymore. It's really good to finally talk about it, but what I have to say runs deeper than that false happiness. I don't sleep properly anymore. I feel I'm just being self-obsessed, trying to impress people as if I were a child. I cry alone in the shower for no reason. I've #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Gillian Flynn
#21. I don't understand the point of being together if you're not the happiest. #Quote by Gillian Flynn
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by John Stuart Mill
#22. It is indisputable that the being whose capacities of enjoyment are low, has the greatest chance of having them fully satisfied; and a highly endowed being will always feel that any happiness which he can look for, as the world is constituted, is imperfect. But he can learn to bear its imperfections, if they are at all bearable; and they will not make him envy the being who is indeed unconscious of the imperfections, but only because he feels not at all the good which those imperfections qualify.
It is better to be a human being dissatisfied than a pig satisfied; better to be Socrates dissatisfied than a fool satisfied. And if the fool, or the pig, is of a different opinion, it is only because they only know their own side of the question. #Quote by John Stuart Mill
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Shawn Achor
#23. This is why Sonja Lyubomirsky, a leader in the scientific study of well-being, has written that she prefers the phrase "creation or construction of happiness" to the more popular "pursuit," since "research shows that it's in our power to fashion it for ourselves."13 #Quote by Shawn Achor
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Anonymous

Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Andre Gide
#25. I do not want to recollect. I should be afraid of preventing the future and of allowing the past to encroach on me. It is out of the utter forgetfulness of yesterday that I create every new hour's freshness. It is never enough for me to have been happy. I do not believe in dead things and cannot distinguish between being no more and never having been. #Quote by Andre Gide
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Paulo Coelho
#26. Every human being has the right to search for happiness, and by 'happiness' is meant something that makes other people feel content. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Alexandre Dumas
#27. No, Maximilien, I am not offended," answered she, "but do you not see what a poor, helpless being I am, almost a stranger and an outcast in my father's house, where even he is seldom seen; whose will has been thwarted, and spirits broken, from the age of ten years, beneath the iron rod so sternly held over me; oppressed, mortified, and persecuted, day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute, no person has cared for, even observed my sufferings, nor have I ever breathed one word on the subject save to yourself. Outwardly and in the eyes of the world, I am surrounded by kindness and affection; but the reverse is the case. The general remark is, `Oh, it cannot be expected that one of so stern a character as M. Villefort could lavish the tenderness some fathers do on their daughters. What though she has lost her own mother at a tender age, she has had the happiness to find a second mother in Madame de Villefort.' The world, however, is mistaken; my father abandons me from utter indifference, while my mother-in-law detests me with a hatred so much the more terrible because it is veiled beneath a continual smile. #Quote by Alexandre Dumas
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Dalai Lama XIV
#28. I believe that the very purpose of life is to be happy. From the very core of our being, we desire contentment. In my own limited experience I have found that the more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being. Cultivating a close, warmhearted feeling for others automatically puts the mind at ease. It helps remove whatever fears or insecurities we may have and gives us the strength to cope with any obstacles we encounter. It is the principal source of success in life. Since we are not solely material creatures, it is a mistake to place all our hopes for happiness on external development alone. The key is to develop inner peace. #Quote by Dalai Lama XIV
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Auliq Ice
#29. Your eyes gave it away. You don't want the old stuff. You want to have the new and improved Well-being, go with the right people and they'll be right for you. #Quote by Auliq Ice
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Tina Turner
#30. My greatest beauty secret is being happy with myself. I don't use special creams or treatments - I'll use a little bit of everything. It's a mistake to think you are what you put on yourself. I believe that a lot of how you look is to do with how you feel about yourself and your life. Happiness is the greatest beauty secret. #Quote by Tina Turner
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Leanne Payne
#31. Desire is a mighty force, one of your most divine attributes! Whatsoever things ye desire when ye pray, believe that ye have received them and ye shall have them! See the Godlike quality of desire. For it is part of the Atomic energy of the soul. The Kingdom of Heaven within you is operated through desire. Do not quench it or crush
it or suppress it. Rather offer it to Me. Offer Me your most elementary desires, your craving for happiness, for love, for self-expression, for well-being, for success, for joy, on any level of your being-offer these freely and without shame to Me and I will transmute them so that you shall achieve release and fulfillment and complete freedom from frustration.2 #Quote by Leanne Payne
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Joan Marques
#32. Happiness means different things at different times. First, we think it's about being with a special person. Then we think it's about being special. Finally we find it's about being. #Quote by Joan Marques
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Ayn Rand
#33. A being of volitional consciousness has no automatic course of behavior. He needs a code of values to guide his actions. 'Value' is that which one acts to gain and keep, 'virtue' is the action by which one gains and keeps it. 'Value' presupposes an answer to the question: of value to whom and for what? 'Value' presupposes a standard, a purpose and the necessity of action in the face of an alternative. Where there are no alternatives, no values are possible. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#34. Consider the cattle, grazing as they pass you by. They do not know what is meant by yesterday or today, they leap about, eat, rest, digest, leap about again, and so from morn till night and from day to day, fettered to the moment and its pleasure or displeasure, and thus neither melancholy nor bored. [ ... ] A human being may well ask an animal: 'Why do you not speak to me of your happiness but only stand and gaze at me?' The animal would like to answer, and say, 'The reason is I always forget what I was going to say' - but then he forgot this answer too, and stayed silent. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Gautama Buddha
#35. Happiness never decreased by being shared. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by William Alexander Percy
#36. The good die when they should live, the evil live when they should die; heroes perish and cowards escape; noble efforts do not succeed because they are noble, and wickedness is consumed in its own nature. Looking at truth is not at first a heartening experience--it becomes so, if at all, only with time, with infinite patience, and with the luck of a little personal happiness. #Quote by William Alexander Percy
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Cassandra Clare
#37. Sincerity and gravity, in Magnus's opinion, were highly overrated, as was being forced to relive unpleasant memories. He would much rather be amused and amusing. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Eugene Delacroix
#38. Can any man say with certainty that he was happy at a particular moment of time which he remembers as being delightful? Remembering it certainly makes him happy, because he realizes how happy he could have been, but at the actual moment when the alleged happiness was occurring, did he really feel happy? He was like a man owning a piece of ground in which, unknown to himself, a treasure lay buried. #Quote by Eugene Delacroix
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Farshad Asl
#39. Happiness attracts success. Happy people perform at a much higher level with less burnout, greater productivity, and more resilience. You can't win being unhappy. #Quote by Farshad Asl
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Dean Koontz
#40. Envy, envy eats them alive. If you had money, they'd envy you that. But since you don't, they envy you for having such a good, bright, loving daughter. They envy you for just being a happy man. They envy you for not envying them. One of the greatest sorrows of human existence is that some people aren't happy merely to be alive but find their happiness only in the misery of others. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by C.S. Lewis
#41. One of the dangers of having a lot of money is that you may be quite satisfied with the kinds of happiness money can give, and so fail to realize your need for God. If everything seems to come simply by signing checks, you may forget that you are at every moment totally dependent on God. Now, quite plainly natural gifts carry with them a similar danger. If you have sound nerves and intelligence and health and popularity and a good upbringing, you are likely to be quite satisfied with your character as it is. "Why drag God into it?" you may ask. A certain level of good conduct comes fairly easily to you. You are not one of those wretched creatures who are always being tripped up by sex or dipsomania or nervousness or bad temper. Everyone says you are a nice chap, and between ourselves, you agree with them. You are quite likely to believe that all this niceness is your own doing, and you may easily not feel the need for any better kind of goodness. Often people who have all these natural kinds of goodness cannot be brought to recognize their need for Christ at all until one day, the natural goodness lets them down, and their self-satisfaction is shattered. In other words, it is hard for those who are rich in this sense to enter the kingdom. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Helen Van Slyke
#42. I should coldly, clinically think of myself and stop worrying about other people, as though I'm a necessary woman, indispensable to their happiness and well-being. Self-preservation is the first law. I must start trying to obey the law. #Quote by Helen Van Slyke
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Graham Greene
#43. She was not too young to be wise, but she was too young to know that wisdom
shouldn't be spoken aloud when you are happy. #Quote by Graham Greene
Happiness Being Overrated quotes by Anne Frank
#44. We have the opportunity to get an education and make something of ourselves. We have many reasons to hope for great happiness, but we have to earn it. And that is something you can't achieve by taking the easy ways out. Earning happiness means doing good and working, not speculating and being lazy. #Quote by Anne Frank
