Top Chasing Happiness Quotes

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Glennon Doyle Melton

I think one of the keys to happiness is accepting that I am never going to be perfectly happy. Life is uncomfortable. So I might as well get busy loving the people around me. I'm going to stop trying so hard to decide whether they are the "right people" for me and just take deep breaths and love my neighbors. I'm going to take care of my friends. I'm going to find peace in the 'burbs. I'm going to quit chasing happiness long enough to notice it smiling right at me. — Glennon Doyle Melton

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Orison Swett Marden

One of the strangest things in life is the false ideas everywhere prevalent regarding the nature of happiness. The general belief seems to be that it is founded on things that can be bought with money. The more money the more things, and the more things the more enjoyment, the greater the degree of happiness. But money has never yet been known to buy happiness. No one has ever yet found happiness by chasing it over the earth. It is not in our food, it is not in our drink, it is not in our clothes or material possessions; it is not in excitement or a constant round of pleasure. Happiness is born of right living. It is the child of right thinking, and right acting, of helpful service. A selfish life never knows real happiness. Greed and envy never touch it. — Orison Swett Marden

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Jonah Goldberg

America's political system used to be about the pursuit of happiness. Now More and more of us want to stop chasing it and have it delivered. — Jonah Goldberg

Chasing Happiness Quotes By T.F. Hodge

Huge difference between being happy at will, and chasing euphoric moments as an escape. One doesn't cost a dime, the other will tax your soul. — T.F. Hodge

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Carlos Wallace

Door money. It's a distraction. It impedes judgment. It blurs focus. Chasing the almighty dollar can become the root of all evil, the bane of one's existence. — Carlos Wallace

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Simon Gray

We've forgotten that chasing happiness or peace only causes it to seem further away. It's a little like wild kittens. You can chase them all day long and not catch them. But, if you sit quietly and allow them to come to you, you will tame them in time. — Simon Gray

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Ken Keyes Jr.

People who postpone happiness are like children who try chasing rainbows in an effort to find the pot of gold at the rainbows end ... Your life will never be fulfilled until you are happy here and now ... — Ken Keyes Jr.

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Jessica Khoury

Because happiness itself is a mythical construct, a dream you humans tell yourselves to get through each day. It is the moon, and you, like the sun, pursue it relentlessly, chasing it around and around, getting nowhere. — Jessica Khoury

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Mandy Hale

Happiness doesn't have to be chased ... it merely has to be chosen. — Mandy Hale

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Sandy Hyatt-James

The moment you stop chasing happiness, you become happy. — Sandy Hyatt-James

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Gary Vaynerchuk

People are chasing cash, not happiness. When you chase money, you're going to lose. You're just going to. Even if you get the money, you're not going to be happy. — Gary Vaynerchuk

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Lawana Blackwell

When we persue happiness for it's own sake, it's like chasing the end of a rainbow. It will always elude us. It is when we're committed to some higher purpose that happiness somehow breaks through and comes to dwell with us. — Lawana Blackwell

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Tim Kreider

Perhaps the reason we so often experience happiness only in hindsight, and that chasing it is such a fool's errand, is that happiness isn't a goal in itself but is only an aftereffect. It's the consequence of having lived in the way that we're supposed to - by which I don't mean ethically correctly so much as just consciously, fully engaged in the business of living. In this respect it resembles averted vision, a phenomena familiar to backyard astronomers whereby, in order to pick out a very faint star, you have to let your gaze drift casually to the space just next to it; if you look directly at it, it vanishes. And it's also true, come to think of it, that the only stars we ever see are not the "real" stars, those cataclysms taking place in the present, but always only the light of the untouchable past. — Tim Kreider

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Robin S. Sharma

Most people don't discover what life is all about until just before they die. While we are young, we spend our days striving and keeping up with social expectations. We are so busy chasing life's big pleasures that we miss out on the little ones, like dancing barefoot in a park on a rainy day with our kids or planting a rose garden or watching the sun come up. We live in an age where we have conquered the highest of mountains but have yet to master our selves. We have taller buildings but shorter tempers, more possessions but less happiness, fuller minds but emptier lives. Do not wait until you are on your deathbed to realize the meaning of life and the precious role you have to play within it. — Robin S. Sharma

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Kara Platoni

Unlike animals, we are able to produce emotional states through thinking," she says. "A zebra is only going to be horrendously stressed if a lion is chasing it, but my students can get themselves in the same state by worrying about their midterm." And, she points out, it's much easier for us to think ourselves into worry than into happiness. People — Kara Platoni

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Donny Osmond

The mindset of chasing that next #1 record doesn't exist for me anymore. It's more about being a well-rounded entertainer than being a pop artist. Obviously, it would be wonderful to have a hit record but I don't base my happiness on that anymore. It's about the accomplishment of a project that satisfies me. I just want to enjoy the ride. — Donny Osmond

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Andrew Delbanco

As people spin faster and faster in the pursuit of merely personal happiness, they become exhausted in the futile effort of chasing themselves. — Andrew Delbanco

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Nikki Rowe

I think people give up, because it's the easy option, but my goodness; why would giving up be easy? Your living your life chasing anything to fill the void of what came about when you let go of everything that mattered? I'd rather fight like mad, for everything that will ever matter, because giving in to anything that doesn't will never cure the dream. — Nikki Rowe

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Drew Waters

When I woke up later, I had established all these businesses and we were growing and everything was going well and I was miserable because I was chasing money and not happiness. I decided that day in August that I would quit chasing money and start chasing passion and allow the money to grow around me ... I wanted to have passion in my life to show my girls to live by passion. — Drew Waters

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Oliver Burkeman

And here lies the essential between Stoicism and the modern-day 'cult of optimism.' For the Stoics, the ideal state of mind was tranquility, not the excitable cheer that positive thinkers usually seem to mean when they use the word, 'happiness.' And tranquility was to be achieved not by strenuously chasing after enjoyable experiences, but by cultivating a kind of calm indifference towards one's circumstances. — Oliver Burkeman

Chasing Happiness Quotes By C.L.R. James

Why are you chasing your tail so?" Said the kitten, "I have learned that the best thing for a cat is happiness, and that happiness is my tail. Therefore, I am chasing it: and when I catch it. I shall have happiness." Said the cat, "My son, I, too, have paid attention to the problems of the universe. I, too, have judged that happiness is in my tail. But, I have noticed that whenever I chase it, it keeps running away from me, and when I go about my business, it just seems to come after me wherever I go. — C.L.R. James

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Evan Sutter

I think success might be one of the most overused words in the western world, and maybe if we changed success for happiness we would be better off, because when you get this 'success' will it make you happier? Are we chasing money, fame, power, ego, success, or are we chasing happiness, freedom and the feeling of being content? — Evan Sutter

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Tony Hsieh

I had decided to stop chasing the money, and start chasing the passion. — Tony Hsieh

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Scott Gaille

As we drove off into the moonless night, raindrops danced through our headlights like the fireflies of my childhood. I silently cursed the frailty of happiness and doubted whether it ever existed for me. I could remember happier times, though, and those memories fluttered about my mind like fireflies, beckoning with their elusive splendor. But chasing memories held no more promise than catching fireflies. The pursued feelings either vanished or lost their magic upon examination, hardly the green-glowing beauty seen at a distance. So I looked ahead of me and dreamed on into the darkness, hoping to one day find someone who would love me. — Scott Gaille

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Oliver Burkeman

Through positive thinking and related approaches, we seek the safety and solid ground of certainty, of knowing how the future will turn out, of a time in the future when we'll be ceaselessly happy and never have to fear negative emotions again. But in chasing all that, we close down the very faculties that permit the happiness we crave. — Oliver Burkeman

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Lisa Kleypas

The problem with chasing after happiness was that it wasn't a destination you could reach. It was something that happened along the way. — Lisa Kleypas

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Harold S. Kushner

People are so busy chasing happiness- if they would slow down and turn around, they would give it a chance to catch up with them. — Harold S. Kushner

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Sayantan Sen

People are chasing happiness
Cars are chasing destinations
Children are chasing new toys
And rest of all are chasing
What's not here yet. — Sayantan Sen

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Chip Ingram

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic

Don't go chasing happiness. Instead, pursue the factors and conditions that create it. — Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Lance Armstrong

Chasing records doesn't keep me on my bike. Happiness does. — Lance Armstrong

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Richelle E. Goodrich

The secret to happiness is elusive because it is a paradoxical truth. To gain happiness, you must first cease pursuing it. Things perceived to provide happiness are like shiny, pretty bubbles that lure us this way and that way, chasing after their glossy buoyancy. But once they are handled, they "pop" - empty - vanishing along with the hope that happiness could ever be captured. Happiness cannot be caught or won or purchased or even handled. Happiness simply forms like a rainbow in the kindest and most grateful hearts. — Richelle E. Goodrich

Chasing Happiness Quotes By J. Courtney Sullivan

These fucking women really piss me off,' April said. 'Because instead of being elated by the thought of making their own happiness and chasing some crazy dream, all they want to do is narrow their options and do something safe. — J. Courtney Sullivan

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Alan W. Watts

If happiness always depends on something expected in the future, we are chasing a will-o'-the-wisp that ever eludes our grasp, until the future, and ourselves, vanish into the abyss of death. — Alan W. Watts

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Elizabeth Gilbert

I wondered, Why have I been chasing happiness my whole life when bliss was here the entire time? — Elizabeth Gilbert

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Jennifer Beckstrand

I cannot give up chasing after happiness simply because there might be pain down the road. — Jennifer Beckstrand

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Auliq Ice

Vision is the code that decodes every mediocrity out of life. — Auliq Ice

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Deepak Chopra

When your actions are motivated by love, you expend least effort and your energy multiplies, allowing you to create anything you want, with a spirit of play and joy. When you seek power and control over others, you waste energy chasing the illusion of happiness. — Deepak Chopra

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Randy Alcorn

The human race is homesick for Eden, which only two humans have ever known. We spend our lives chasing peaceful delight, following dead ends or cul-de-sacs in pursuit of home. We know intuitively that we've wandered. What we don't know is how to return. Our lives are largely the story of the often wrong and occasionally right turns we take in our attempts to get home to Happiness with a capital H - God himself. — Randy Alcorn

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Jessie Burton

What are we all chasing? Nella wonders. To live, of course. To be unbound from the invisible ropes that Johannes spoke of in his study. Or to be happy in them, at least. — Jessie Burton

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Robert Downey Jr.

I used to be so convinced that happiness was the goal, yet all those years I was chasing after it I was unhappy in the pursuit. Maybe the goal really should be a life that values honor, duty, good work, friends and family. — Robert Downey Jr.

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Deepak Chopra

When you seek power and control over other people, you waste energy. When you seek money or power for the sake of the ego, you spend energy chasing the illusion of happiness instead of enjoying happiness in the moment. When you seek money for personal gain only, you cut off the flow of energy to yourself, and interfere with the expression of nature's intelligence. But when your actions are motivated by love, there is no waste of energy. When your actions are motivated by love, your energy multiplies and accumulates - and the surplus energy you gather and enjoy can be channeled to create anything that you want, including unlimited wealth. — Deepak Chopra

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Rachel Van Dyken

I decided to walk alongside Beth and the annoying little ass. It seemed right that it wouldn't be her walking toward me or me waiting for her, but us traveling on the journey together. Because sometimes, that's how love is. It isn't a man chasing a woman, it isn't a man storming the castle, and it isn't the girl waiting for love to happen. It's two people making a commitment. It's two people realizing that they hold the keys to their own happiness in their own damn hands. The problem? Most people forget that they have the power to live the fairytale. I'd forgotten I had the power, and in the end, I'd been willing to walk away from my future. — Rachel Van Dyken

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Majid Kazmi

Pursuit of happiness is like chasing a moving target - a target stuck to the belly of a frolicsome kangaroo. — Majid Kazmi

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Sarah Addison Allen

I'm homesick all the time," she said, still not looking at him "I just don't know where home is. There's this promise of happiness out there. I know it. I even feel it sometimes. But it's like chasing the moon - just when I think I have it, it disappears into the horizon. I grieve and try to move on, but then the damn thing comes back the next night, giving me hope of catching it all over again. — Sarah Addison Allen

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Crestless Wave

We are chasing happiness, and don't care about happiness of people who matter. Probably, we got our priorities right, but failed to set an order.
We created a chaos hoping the world would fall in place itself.. — Crestless Wave

Chasing Happiness Quotes By Sean Stephenson

Until you take ownership for your life, you will always be chasing happiness. — Sean Stephenson
