Of those four winters which I passed in Indo-China opium has left the happiest memory.
Poetry is a record of the best and happiest moments of the happiest and best minds.Percy Bysshe Shelley
The happiest women, like the happiest nations, have no history.
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
"My four years at Berkley represent two of the happiest weeks of my life."
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
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.Euripides

Who is the happiest of men? He who values the merits of others, And in their pleasure takes joy, even as though 'twere his own. Not in the morning alone, not only at mid-day he charmeth; Even at setting, the sun is still the same glorious planet.
Perhaps the happiest moment of my life was then, when I saw that our line didn’t break and that the enemy’s did.rutherford b. hayes
If good music has charms to soothe the savage breast, bad music has no less powerful spells for filling the mildest breast with rage, the happiest with horror and disgust. Oh, those mammy songs, those love longings, those loud hilarities! How was it possible that human emotions intrinsically decent could be so ignobly parodied.aldous huxley
Take the happiest man, the one most envied by the world, and in nine cases out of ten his inmost consciousness is one of failure. Either his ideals in the line of his achievements are pitched far higher than the achievements themselves, or else he has secret ideals of which the world knows nothing, and in regard to which he inwardly knows himself to be found wanting.william james
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.
But happy they, the happiest of their kind, whom gentler stars unite, and in one fate their hearts, their fortunes, and their beings blend.james thomson
What thou bidd'st Unargu'd I obey, so God ordains; God is thy law, thou mine; to know no more Is woman's happiest knowledge and her praise.john milton
And what are you reading miss...? It is only a novel... or, in short, only some work in which the greatest powers of the mind are displayed, in which the most thorough knowledge of human nature, the happiest delineation of its varieties, the liveliest effusions of wit and humour, are conveyed to the world in the best-chosen language.
Hurrah for anarchy! This is the happiest moment of my life.
Employers are at their happiest on Mondays. Employees are at their happiest on Fridays.Mokokoma Mokhonoana
But this is where the fun of ''Crashing the Gates'' comes in. Mr. Christopher, whose previous books were ''The Japanese Mind'' and ''Second to None: American Companies in Japan'' - seems happiest when he is trying to sculpture fog.Christopher Charles Herbert Lehmann-Haupt
