The happiest day the happiest hour My sear'd and blighted heart hath known, The highest hope of pride and power, I feel hath flown.
Of those four winters which I passed in Indo-China opium has left the happiest memory.

Was man auch sagen mag, der glu« cklichsteAugenblick des Glu« c klichen ist doch der seines Einschlafens wie der unglu« cklichste des Unglu« cklichen der seines Erwachens. Whatever we may say, the happiest moment of the happy man is that of his falling asleep, just as the unhappiest moment of the unhappy man is that of his awakening.Arthur Schopenhauer
We have the happiest Africans in the world.
I am happiest when I am idle. I could live for months without performing any kind of labour, and at the expiration of that time I should feel fresh and vigorous enough togo right on inthesame way for numerous more months.
Happy the man, of mortals happiest he,Whose quiet mind from vain desires is free;Whom neither hopes deceive, nor fears torment,But lives at peace, within himself content;In thought, or act, accountable to noneBut to himself, and to the gods alone.granville, george, 1st baron lansdowne
I rejoice that the reign of Christ is such, while it thrills the soul with emotions, and opens before the highest intellect the most ooundless conceptions, we are left at the same time ready, though our hearts be thrilled, to have our hands filled for deeds of benevolence and love. The happiest moments may be the busiest moments.matthew simpson
I enjoy the most that Alan seems to be the happiest the stranger that it can be. I don't think it ever can be strange enough for him.james spader
Along with our passivity, we're entering a profoundly masochistic phase everyone is a victim these days, of parents, doctors, pharmaceutical companies, even love itself. And how much we enjoy it. Our happiest moments are spent trying to think up new varieties of victimhood...j. g. ballard

all at once I saw that the sun was round! Since then I have been the happiest man on Earth!frederick franck
Hope is necessary in every condition. The miseries of poverty, of sickness, or captivity, would, without this comfort, be insupportable; nor does it appear that the happiest lot of terrestrial existence can set us above the want of this general blessing; or that life, when the gifts of nature and of fortune are accumulated upon it, would not still be wretched, were it not elevated and delighted by the expectation of some new possession, of some enjoyment yet behind, by which the wish shall at last be satisfied, and the heart filled up to its utmost extent.samuel johnson

Stay, stay at home, my heart, and rest; Home-keeping hearts are happiest, For those that wander they know not where Are full of trouble and full of care; To stay at home is best.
The words of the great French anthem rang out over the town square, sung for the first time by liberated Frenchmen in the free capital of Normandy and sung with such a feeling of life and warmth as has not been heard in France for four years.... Paris is the happiest city in the world tonight. All Paris is dancing in the streets.
The maxim of buying nothing without the money in our pocket to pay for it, would make of our country one of the happiest upon earth. Experience during the war proved this; as I think every man will remember that under all the privations it obliged him to submit to during that period he slept sounder, and awaked happier than he can do now. Desperate of finding relief from a free course of justice, I look forward to the abolition of all credit as the only other remedy which can take place.
Happy the man, of mortals happiest he, Whose quiet mind from vain desires is free; Whom neither hopes deceive, nor fears torment, But lives at peace, within himself content; In thought, or act, accountable to none But to himself, and to the gods alone.
On Leven's banks, while free to rove, And tune the rural pipe to love, I envied not the happiest swain That ever trod the Arcadian plain. Pure stream! in whose transparent wave My youthful limbs I wont to lave; No torrents stain thy limpid source, No rocks impede thy dimpling course, That sweetly warbles o'er its bed, With white, round, polish'd pebbles spread.tobias smollett
Events will take their course, it is no good of being angry at them; he is happiest who wisely turns them to the best account.
Hurrah for anarchy! This is the happiest moment of my life.
happiest are the people who give most happiness to others.Denis Diderot
Happy in this, she is not yet so old But she may learn; happier than this, She is not bred so dull but she can learn; happiest of all is, that her gentle spirit Commits itself to yours to be directed.william shakespeare
