What is happiness?  The truth is, nobody really knows.  It’s a word without a clear definition, yet we are all engaged in the pursuit of happiness (a phrase immortalised, though never defined, in the constitution of the United States).  For each one of us it means something unique and yet few can even describe what they believe it to mean, even for themselves.

And just when happiness seems to be within our grasp, it proves itself to be forever beyond reach.  Like the elusive butterfly it sometimes seems enticingly close, then at the last moment flutters away.  Perhaps this is not such a bad thing: if we ever found ourselves completely happy, what impetus would we have to do anything else?

In this book, you will find a variety of quotes on the subject of happiness by a wide variety of personalities ranging from the ancient philosophers such as Plato and Buddha to contemporaries like Tina Turner and Sandra Bullock .  Reading them may not in itself bring complete happiness (though it should give you enjoyment); but it will point you in the direction of your own version of happiness.

Good luck!  Be happy!
