Don't underestimate the importance of happiness. As long as you're happy, who cares what you do?
Being happy is of the utmost importance. Success in anything is through happiness.
Others may know pleasure, but pleasure is not happiness. It has no more importance than a shadow following a man.
In the end, the number of prayers we say may contribute to our happiness, but the number of prayers we answer may be of even greater importance.
To exterminate our popular vices is a work of far more importance to the character and happiness of our citizens than any other improvements in our system of education.
If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.
A work of art has no importance whatever to society. It is only important to the individual.
