Kahlil Gibran Inspirational Quotes to Motivate You

Happiness is a myth we seek,
If manifested surely irks;
Like river speeding to the plain,
On its arrival slows and murks.
For man is happy only in
His aspiration to the heights;
When he attains his goal, he cools
And longs for other distant flights.
Kahlil Gibran

Happiness is a state of activity.
Aristotle

Men spend their lives in anticipations, in determining to be vastly happy at some period when they have time. But the present time has one advantage over every other – it is our own. Past opportunities are gone, future have not come. We may lay in a stock of pleasures, as we would lay in a stock of wine; but if we defer the tasting of them too long, we shall find that both are soured by age.
Charles Caleb Colton

Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus

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

If thou wilt make a man happy, add not unto his riches but take away from his desires.
Epicurus

Happiness is something that comes into our lives through doors we don’t even remember leaving open.
