I do not miss childhood, but I miss the way I took pleasure in small things, even as greater things crumbled. I could not control the world I was in, could not walk away from things or people or moments that hurt, but I took joy in the things that made me happy.

Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane

They only let you be this happy if they’re preparing to take something from you.

Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner

I felt lonely and content at the same time. I believe that is a rare kind of happiness.

Stephen King, Bag of Bones

Truth or happiness, never both.

Cal Lightman, Lie To Me

True happiness cannot be tried.

Depeche Mode, Goodnight Lovers

I’ve spent my life making things that bring joy and happiness to make the world a better place. Bubble gum, that was one of my first. Flannel pajamas. Ah, rainbows! And my latest project – singing corpses!

Walter Bishop, Fringe

Action may not always bring happiness; but there is no happiness without action.

Benjamin Disraeli

On the highway of life, we most often recognize happiness out of the rear view mirror.

Frank Tyger

Happiness often sneaks in through a door you didn’t know you left open.

John Barrymore

National socialism is the determination to create a new man. There will no longer exist any individual arbitrary will, nor realms in which the individual belongs to himself. The time of happiness as a private matter is over.

Adolf Hitler
