Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Dada Bhagwan

The worldly life means a market place of sensual pleasures. Worldly life means false (temporary) happiness all the time. And moksha (liberation) means permanent happiness all the time. — Dada Bhagwan

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Thomas Hardy

There are disappointments which wring us, and there are those which inflict a wound whose mark we bear to our graves. Such are so keen that no future gratification of the same desire can ever obliterate them: they become registered as a permanent loss of happiness. — Thomas Hardy

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Bob Dylan

A lot of people say there is no happiness in this life, and certainly there's no permanent happiness. But self-sufficiency creates happiness. Happiness is a state of bliss. Just because you're satisfied one moment - saying yes, it's a good meal, makes me happy - well, that's not going to necessarily be true the next hour. Life has its ups and downs, and time has to be your partner. Time is your soul mate. Children are happy. But they haven't really experienced ups and downs yet. I'm not exactly sure what happiness even means. I don't know if I personally could define it. — Bob Dylan

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Christopher Pike

You search endlessly for permanent happiness in a world where nothing is permanent. — Christopher Pike

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Max Muller

Universities were not meant entirely, or even chiefly, as stepping-stones to an examination, but that there is something else which universities can teach and ought to teach-nay, which I feel quite sure they were originally meant to teach-something that may not have a marketable value before a Board of Examiners, but which has a permanent value for the whole of our life, and that is a real interest in our work, and, more than that, a love of our work, and, more than that, a true joy and happiness in our work ... — Max Muller

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Debasish Mridha

Defeat is a transient perception but giving up is permanent. So never give up. — Debasish Mridha

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Orson Pratt

An order of government, established by such an all-wise, powerful being, must be good and perfect, and must be calculated to promote the permanent peace, happiness, and well-being of all his subjects. — Orson Pratt

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Pablo Neruda

Each in the most hidden sack kept
the lost jewels of memory,
intense love, secret nights and permanent kisses,
the fragment of public or private happiness.
A few, the wolves, collected thighs,
other men loved the dawn scratching
mountain ranges or ice floes, locomotives, numbers.
For me happiness was to share singing,
praising, cursing, crying with a thousand eyes.
I ask forgiveness for my bad ways:
my life had no use on earth. — Pablo Neruda

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By William James

When all is said and done, we are in the end absolutely dependent on the universe; and into sacrifices and surrenders of some sort, deliberately looked at and accepted, we are drawn and pressed as into our only permanent positions of repose. Now in those states of mind which fall short of religion, the surrender is submitted to as an imposition of necessity, and the sacrifice is undergone at the very best without complaint. In the religious life, on the contrary, surrender and sacrifice are positively espoused: even unnecessary givings-up are added in order that the happiness may increase. Religion thus makes easy and felicitous what in any case is necessary. — William James

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Marcel Proust

We are, when we love, in an abnormal state, capable of giving at once to the most apparently simple accident, an accident which may at any moment occur, a seriousness which in itself it would not entail. What makes us so happy is the presence in our hearts of an unstable element which we contrive perpetually to maintain and of which we cease almost to be aware so long as it is not displaced. In reality, there is in love a permanent strain of suffering which happiness neutralises, make potential only, postpones, but which may at any moment become, what it would long since have been had we not obtained what we wanted, excruciating. — Marcel Proust

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Gary L. Thomas

I've found that obedience to God creates quiet fulfillment in the present. There is a spiritual satisfaction that comes even in the midst of our trials. It is a demeanor that may not be as "showy" as gleeful happiness, but it is much less subject to moods and makes for much more permanent a disposition. — Gary L. Thomas

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Paramahansa Yogananda

To commune daily with God in deep meditation, and to carry His love and guidance with you into all your dutiful activities, is the way that leads to permanent peace and happiness. — Paramahansa Yogananda

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Sunderlal Bahuguna

The solution of present-day problems lie in the re-establishment of a harmonious relationship between man and nature. To keep this relationship permanent we will have to digest the definition of real development: development is synonymous with culture. When we sublimate nature in a way that we achieve peace, happiness, prosperity and, ultimately, fulfilment along with satisfying our basic needs, we march towards culture. — Sunderlal Bahuguna

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Stacia Kane

Well, clearly someone you trust isn't really someone you should be trusting, she said without thinking, and regretted it when Terrible glanced at her. He did it fast, just a quick cut of his eyes in her direction and then away again, but she saw it. She felt it. It was starting already. She wished she could say she was surprised, wished she hadn't been waiting for it, expecting it the way she expected rain from black clouds overhead. Nothing in the world was permanent, especially not happiness. She'd always known that. She just wished life would stop proving her right. — Stacia Kane

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Samuel Johnson

Happiness," said he, "must be something solid and permanent, without fear and without uncertainty. — Samuel Johnson

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Debasish Mridha

Life is a transient phenomenon but not a permanent destination. — Debasish Mridha

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By John Marshall

That the people have an original right to establish, for their future government, such principles as, in their opinion, shall most conduce to their own happiness, is the basis, on which the whole American fabric has been erected ... The principles, therefore, so established, are deemed fundamental. And as the authority, from which they proceed, is supreme ... they are designed to be permanent ... The powers of the legislature are defined, and limited; and that those limits may not be mistaken, or forgotten, the constitution is written. — John Marshall

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Frederick Lenz

Enlightenment is really worth seeking. It is the only thing that gives you permanent happiness. When you experience the ecstasy of enlightenment, everything is alright. — Frederick Lenz

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By James Madison

A sincere and steadfast co-operation in promoting such a reconstruction of our political system as would provide for the permanent liberty and happiness of the United States. — James Madison

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Hermann Joseph Muller

There is no permanent status quo in nature; all is the process of adjustment and readjustment, or else eventual failure. But man is the first being yet evolved on earth which has the power to note this changefulness, and, if he will, to turn it to his own advantage, to work out genetic methods, eugenic ideas, yes, to invent new characteristics, organs, and biological systems that will work out to further the interests, the happiness, the glory of the God-like being whose meager foreshadowings we the present ailing creatures are. — Hermann Joseph Muller

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By A.A. Alebraheem

Both the Old Testament and the Quran tell a similar story of Adam, the first man, who threw happiness away, and was consigned by God to live a harsh life scratching a living from the earth. Earth is not a place where everlasting and permanent happiness is found. Looking for it here is a distraction that diverts us from pursuing moderate contentment and peace of mind. — A.A. Alebraheem

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By David Michie

From our perspective the only way to enjoy a state of permanent happiness and avoid all suffering is to achieve enlightenment. This is why bodhichitta is considered to be the most altruistic of motivations. We wish to achieve enlightenment not only for ourselves but to help every other living being achieve the same state. — David Michie

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Ahmed Mostafa

Momentary happiness is worse than permanent misery. — Ahmed Mostafa

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Madame De Stael

I believe that happiness consists in having a destiny in keeping with our abilities. Our desires are things of the moment, often harmful even to ourselves; but our abilities are permanent, and their demands never cease. — Madame De Stael

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Mary Balogh

Happy? Most of the time? Happiness is always a fleeting thing," he said, "It never rests upon anyone as a permanent state, though many of us persist in believing in the foolish idea that if this would just happen or that we would be happy for the rest of our lives. I know moments of happiness just as most other people do. Perhaps I have learned to find it in ways that would pass some people by. I feel the summer heat here at this moment and see the trees and the water and hear that invisible gull overhead. I feel the novelty of having company when I usually come here alone. And this moment brings me happiness. — Mary Balogh

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By R.v.m.

Contentment is the foundation of true Happiness. The Happiness that comes from fulfilling desires can never be permanent.-RVM — R.v.m.

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By George Matthew Adams

One of the great arts in living is to learn the art of accurately appraising values. Everything that we think, that we earn, that we have given to us, that in any way touches our consciousness, has its own value. These values are apt to change with the mood, with time, or because of circumstances. We cannot safely tie to any material value. The values of all material possessions change continually, sometimes over night. Nothing of this nature has any permanent set value. The real values are those that stay by you, give you happiness and enrich you. They are the human values. — George Matthew Adams

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Rivers Cuomo

I'm just living each day, and I'm better equipped to do so. I mean, I used to be totally afraid, I used to have, like, permanent stage fright. But now I'm trying to have fun. I'm trying to bring as much happiness to as many people as possible. — Rivers Cuomo

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Limor Moyal

Happiness is like soap bubbles. It comes in small fragile doses, transparent and gentle, that you can't catch, or hold forever. You have to learn to recognize the moment, to embrace it and when the bubble pops and the moment is over, to choose whether to remember it or not.
The miserable people are the ones who think that happiness is a permanent state. They waste half of their lives trying to find it, and the other half being disappointed that they can't, while there are many little soap bubbles floating in the air around them, but they don't ever see them. — Limor Moyal

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Dada Bhagwan

God says only one thing if you want to have attachment towards worldly life; go ahead and get attached to it; or else, get attached to Me. If you get attached to Me, you will get permanent happiness and if you get attached to the worldly life, you will not find contentment! — Dada Bhagwan

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Jane Austen

How little of permanent happiness could belong to a couple who were only brought together because their passions were stronger than their virtue. — Jane Austen

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Samuel Johnson

It may be observed in general that the future is purchased by the present. It is not possible to secure distant or permanent happiness but by the forbearance of some immediate gratification. This is so evidently true with regard to the whole of our existence that all precepts of theology have no other tendency than to enforce a life of faith; a life regulated not by our senses but by our belief; a life in which pleasures are to be refused for fear of invisible punishments, and calamities sometimes to be sought, and always endured, in hope of rewards that shall be obtained in another state. — Samuel Johnson

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Tiffanie DeBartolo

For what it's worth, I think happiness is a fleeting condition, not a permanent state of goddamn mind. I've learned that if you chase after moments of bliss here and there, sometimes those moments will sustain you through the shit. — Tiffanie DeBartolo

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Vikrmn

Joy is temporary, Happiness is permanent; for it comes out from positive mind and is an art of tension free heart. — Vikrmn

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Steve Goodier

But let me offer a word of caution. If you choose to give from your heart, be careful. The most incredible feeling might just overwhelm you. And if you continue in this behavior, that feeling may become permanent. — Steve Goodier

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Dan Pearce

Dads. Do you not realize that your child needs to feel your skin on his? Do you not realize the incredible and powerful bond that skin on skin contact with your daughter will give you? Do you not understand the permanent mental connections that are made when you stroke your son's bare back or rub your daughter's bare tummy while you tell bedtime stories? And if any idiot says anything about that being inappropriate, you're gonna get kicked in the face, first by me, and then by every other good dad out there. Touching your child is your duty as a father. — Dan Pearce

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Carole Glickfeld

You know, happiness isn't a permanent state. Neither is unhappiness. There's a flow, back and forth — Carole Glickfeld

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Rohinton Mistry

But nobody ever forgot anything, not really, though sometimes they pretended, when it suited them. Memories were permanent. Sorrowful ones remained sad even with the passing of time, yet happy ones could never be recreated - not with the same joy. Remembering bred its own peculiar sorrow. It seemed so unfair: that time should render both sadness and happiness into a source of pain. — Rohinton Mistry

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Dada Bhagwan

Imaginary happiness has an "end" and real happiness is "permanent". — Dada Bhagwan

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Samuel Richardson

We all know by theory that there is no permanent happiness in this life: But the weight of the precept is not felt in the same manner as when it is confirmed to us by a heavy calamity. — Samuel Richardson

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Padraig O Tuama

It has taken years to continue to live into the truth that if I believe we are from God and for God, then we are from Goodness and for Goodness. To greet sorrow today does not mean that sorrow will be there tomorrow. Happiness comes too, and grief, and tiredness, disappointment, surprise and energy. Chaos and fulfilment will be named as well as delight and despair. This is the truth of being here, wherever here is today. It may not be permanent but it is here. I will probably leave here, and I will probably return. To deny here is to harrow the heart. Hello to here. — Padraig O Tuama

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Charles Sumner

No true and permanent fame can be founded except in labors which promote the happiness of mankind. — Charles Sumner

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Tony Reinke

Apart from this ultimate hope, the created world would be a dungeon of despair for God's children. But faith animates our lives with an eschatological anticipation of the presence and glory of Christ. We will not find our full and permanent happiness here. Nor will we find Christian joy automatically, like a daily newspaper at the door. God intends for us to find joy kinetically, in action, as we work out our faith with fear and trembling, as we fight the good fight of faith, as we worship, fellowship, and engage in all the various dynamics of the Christian life together.62 But even in this, our hope of eternal joy sobers our expectations for the joy we can expect to experience in this life. — Tony Reinke

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Paige Lee Elliston

Life is a gift. The Lord never promised any of us permanent happiness on earth. But - and here's the saving grace - he will give us the strength we need to keep on going if we ask him. — Paige Lee Elliston

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Dada Bhagwan

When you experience permanent bliss of the Self (samadhi), then it will be considered that your entire work is completed. — Dada Bhagwan

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Dashama Konah Gordon

As with all things in the physical plane, nothing is permanent, and the only thing we can truly count on is change. Things come and go, people are born and die and move in and out of our lives. The dreams and goals of today will one day either materialize or evolve into something different with time. If we become rigidly attached to any of this, we set ourselves up for the inevitable suffering that will ensue when the thing, person or idea flows out of our lives, or our desire for it shifts. — Dashama Konah Gordon

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Myrtle Reed

Before, you think of it as a permanent bond of happiness; later, you see that it is a yoke, borne unequally. You marry to keep love, but sometimes that is the surest way to lose it. — Myrtle Reed

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Lorenzo Snow

There are some who do not learn, and who do not improve as fast as they might, because their eyes and their hearts are not upon God; they do not reflect neither do they have that knowledge which they might have; they miss a good deal which they might receive. We have got to obtain knowledge before we obtain permanent happiness; we have got to be wide awake in the things of God. — Lorenzo Snow

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Krista Tippett

To nurture a resilient human being, or a resilient city, is to build in an expectation of adversity, a capacity for inevitable vulnerability. As a word and as a strategy, resilience honors the unromantic reality of who we are and how we are, and so becomes a refreshingly practical compass for the systems and societies we can craft. It's a shift from wish-based optimism to reality-based hope. It is akin to meaningful, sustained happiness - not dependent on a state of perfection or permanent satisfaction, not an emotional response to circumstances of the moment, but a way of being that can meet the range of emotions and experiences, light and dark, that add up to a life. Resilience is at once proactive, pragmatic, and humble. It knows it needs others. It doesn't overcome failure so much as transmute it, integrating it into the reality that evolves. Such — Krista Tippett

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Toni Morrison

How exquisitely human was the wish for permanent happiness, and how thin human imagination became trying to achieve it. — Toni Morrison

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Debasish Mridha

Express your unconditional love; kindle someone's heart. It will leave a permanent mark; you will never be apart. — Debasish Mridha

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Romare Bearden

Every artist wants his work to be permanent. But what is? The Aswan Dam covered some of the greatest art in the world. Venice is sinking. Great books and pictures were lost in the Florence floods. In the meantime we still enjoy butterflies. — Romare Bearden

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Dada Bhagwan

When the 'right belief' occurs, the world will appear quite different. 'Right belief' will take one towards the Eternal (Self), and the 'wrong belief' will take one towards the worldly life. — Dada Bhagwan

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Christopher Morley

only as idiocy! I hope that you will write to tell me along what curves your mind is moving. For my own part I feel that we are on the verge of amazing things. Long ago I fell back on books as the only permanent consolers. They are the one stainless and unimpeachable achievement of the human race. It saddens me to think that I shall have to die with thousands of books unread that would have given me noble and unblemished happiness. I will tell you a secret. I have never read King Lear, and have purposely refrained from doing so. If I were ever very ill I would only need to say to myself "You can't die yet, you haven't read Lear." That would bring me round, I know it would. You — Christopher Morley

Happiness Not Permanent Quotes By Debasish Mridha

Failure is transient but giving up is permanent. — Debasish Mridha
