Money is numbers and numbers never end. If it takes money to be happy, your search for happiness will never end.
If you are happy, happiness will come to you. Because happiness wants to go where happiness is.

'Destiny, chance, fate, fortune -they're all just ways of claiming your success without claiming your failures.'
- Gerrard of the Weatherlight
I refuse to accept other people's ideas of happiness for me. As if there's a 'one size fits all' standard for happiness.
in Roald Dahl (Book quote) Charlie und die Schokoladenfabrik
But there was one other thing that the grown-ups also knew, and it was this: that however small the chance might be of striking lucky, the chance is there.
That's the best revenge of all: happiness. Nothing drives people crazier than seeing someone have a good fucking life.
The happiest people don't worry too much about whether life is fair ot not, they just get on with it.
in Anne Morrow Lindbergh (Book quote) Gift from the Sea
Don't wish me happiness - I don't expect to be happy it's gotten beyond that, somehow. Wish me courage and strength and a sense of humor - I will need them all.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh
For happiness one needs security, but joy can spring like a flower even from the cliffs of despair.
People often remark that I'm pretty lucky. Luck is only important in so far as getting the chance to sell yourself at the right moment. After that, you've got to have talent and know how to use it.
People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be.
Episode 2: Two Households, by The Silver Lining King Graham (Game quote)
You couldn't know what happiness is if you don't live through the tougher times likes this. They make you stronger, and they make you value those moments of happiness with all your heart.
Be happy for no reason, like a child! If you are happy for a reason, you're in trouble, because that reason can be taken from you.
Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.
Keep your heart open to dreams, for as long as there's a dream there is hope. And as long there is hope there is joy in living. The key to happiness is having dreams. The key to success is making your dreams come true.
When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life.
When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up.
I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.
