My whole working philosophy is that the only stable happiness for mankind is that it shall live married in blessed union to woman-kind - intimacy, physical and psychical between a man and his wife. I wish to add that my state of bliss is by no means perfect.
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.
It is very important to generate a good attitude, a good heart, as much as possible. From this, happiness in both the short term and the long term for both yourself and others will come.
I wouldn't be caught dead marrying a woman old enough to be my wife.
Happiness is good health and a bad memory.
To be stupid and selfish and to have good health are the three requirements for happiness, though if stupidity is lacking, the others are useless.
Anything you're good at contributes to happiness.
She generally gave herself very good advice, (though she very seldom followed it).
For a man wins nothing better than a good wife, and then again nothing deadlier than a bad one.
To be stupid, selfish, and have good health are three requirements for happiness, though if stupidity is lacking, all is lost.
Happy is the man who finds a true friend, and far happier is he who finds that true friend in his wife.
The only thing to do with good advice is to pass it on. It is never of any use to oneself.
I found the right man, got married, and just had to keep not reinventing myself, just deciding that it doesn't matter what you are if you are a good person.
The ultimate end of your education was to make you a good wife.
To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.
I got married because I fell in love with this woman. I had a baby with her because we wanted to have children. But that's not because of some philosophical ideal at all, no.
Sometimes I think my husband is so amazing that I don't know why he's with me. I don't know whether I'm good enough. But if I make him happy, then I'm everything I want to be.
I was told to avoid the business all together because of the rejection. People would say to me, 'Don't you want to have a normal job and a normal family?' I guess that would be good advice for some people, but I wanted to act.
Now and then it's good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.
Derive happiness in oneself from a good day's work, from illuminating the fog that surrounds us.
You don't have to be married to have a good friend as your partner for life.
Always remember that the most important thing in a good marriage is not happiness, but stability.
Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation, and freedom in all just pursuits.
I met my wife through playing golf. She is French and couldn't speak English and I couldn't speak French, so there was little chance of us getting involved in any boring conversations - that's why we got married really quickly.
The only thing that could spoil a day was people. People were always the limiters of happiness except for the very few that were as good as spring itself.
