One mustn't ask apple trees for oranges, France for sun, women for love, life for happiness.
To love is to place our happiness in the happiness of another.
There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved.
Making love in the morning got me through morning sickness. I found I could be happy and throw up at the same time.
There is no true love save in suffering, and in this world we have to choose either love, which is suffering, or happiness. Man is the more man - that is, the more divine - the greater his capacity for suffering, or rather, for anguish.
You know it's love when all you want is that person to be happy, even if you're not part of their happiness.
We've been in that situation where you're just so happy to be doing what you love to do that you get taken advantage of.
Life's greatest happiness is to be convinced we are loved.
To tell you the truth, in my work, love is always in opposition to the elements. It creates dilemmas. It brings in suffering. We can't live with it, and we can't live without it. You'll rarely find a happy ending in my work.
I think it's the same simple thing for everyone - to be happy, and have love in your life.
Act happy, feel happy, be happy, without a reason in the world. Then you can love, and do what you will.

Happy are those who dare courageously to defend what they love.
Of all forms of caution, caution in love is perhaps the most fatal to true happiness.
Lovers who love truly do not write down their happiness.
I think the biggest disease the world suffers from in this day and age is the disease of people feeling unloved. I know that I can give love for a minute, for half an hour, for a day, for a month, but I can give. I am very happy to do that, I want to do that.
I'm very happy at home. I love to just hang out with my daughter, I love to work in my garden. I'm not a gaping hole of need.
Happy is the man whom the Muses love: sweet speech flows from his mouth.
Why love if losing hurts so much? I have no answers anymore; only the life I have lived. The pain now is part of the happiness then.
The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved; loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.
The Divine of the Lord in heaven is love, for the reason that love is receptive of all things of heaven, such as peace, intelligence, wisdom and happiness.
We are not the same persons this year as last; nor are those we love. It is a happy chance if we, changing, continue to love a changed person.
Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don't walk behind me, I may not lead. There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved.
There is no lonelier man in death, except the suicide, than that man who has lived many years with a good wife and then outlived her. If two people love each other there can be no happy end to it.
My life is a lovely story, happy and full of incident.
