As I go through all kinds of feelings and experiences in my journey through life – delight, surprise, chagrin, dismay – I hold this question as a guiding light: “What do I really need right now to be happy?” What I come to over and over again is that only qualities as vast and deep as love, connection and kindness will really make me happy in any sort of enduring way.- Sharon Salzberg
What would our world be like if we ceased to worry about “right” and “wrong,” or “good” and “evil,” and simply acted so as to maximize well-being, our own and that of others? Would we lose anything important?- Sam Harris
Ever since happiness heard your name, it has been running through the streets trying to find you.
No one is in control of your happiness but you; therefore, you have the power to change anything about yourself or your life that you want to change.- Barbara de Angelis
