"We never enjoy perfect happiness; our most fortunate successes are mingled with sadness; some anxieties always perplex the reality of our satisfaction."
Pierre Corneille

"I have never belonged wholeheartedly to a country, a state, nor to a circle of friends, nor even to my own family. When I was still a rather precocious young man, I already realized most vividly the futility of the hopes and aspirations that most men pursue throughout their lives.

"Albert Einstein

Quotes About Happiness

"That creative principle, before it touches mind, is complete innocence, and so there is no vigilance. It is empty, and so there is the fullness of Love. It is freedom itself, life itself, and so there is no need to seek or to avoid. Absent the knowledge of virtue, it is virtue itself. It is possible to rediscover this essential principle and abandon all else."

Phil Beaumont
