Quote by Willa Cather
One cannot divine nor forecast the conditions that will make happiness; one only stumbles upon them by chance, in a lucky hour, at the world's end somewhere, and hold fast to the days, as to fortune or fame.
Love is the condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.
Most people ask for happiness on condition. Happiness can be felt only if you don't set any conditions.
We could never learn to be brave and patient, if there were only joy in the world.
When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.
Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.
I think that no one, whether man or woman, who is always busy, or who is constantly preoccupied by the thought of fame, can love like one who has nothing but love to think of.
I'm treating you as a friend asking you to share my present minuses in the hope that I can ask you to share my future pluses.
In love, unlike most other passions, the recollection of what you have had and lost is always better than what you can hope for in the future.
What lies behind us, and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
I got my grammar correct today. I always faced problems in present, past and future tenses. I loved you. I love you. I will love you forever.
True love is when you value your lover's happiness more than yours, and make their happiness your first priority.
May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, enough hope to make you happy.
The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.
True happiness is always a moment. More could not be endured by man, who often in an entire life doesn't have the luck to find even that one moment, or even get close to it.
