Happiness
 
  Happiness is like sunshine; it is made up of very little beams.
            —Anonymous
  1
  Happiness, like the blue of the sky, cannot be lasting, for the earth, to yield its fruits, requires the rain, and man to estimate at their true value this life and the next, has need of tears.
            —Fernán Caballero
  2
  Happiness, like a refreshing stream, flows from heart to heart in endless circulation.
            —Henry Grove
  3
  Happiness is reflective, like the light of heaven; and every countenance, bright with smiles, and glowing with innocent enjoyment, is a mirror transmitting to others the ways of a supreme and evershining benevolence.
            —Washington Irving
  4
  Happiness, like a snail, is never found from home, nor without a home.
            —L. Carroll Judson
  5
  Happiness is like game, if you aim at it from too long a distance, you must miss it.
            —Alphonse Karr
  6
  False happiness is like false money; it passes for a time as well as the true, and serves some ordinary purposes; but when it is brought to the touch we find the lightness and alloy and feel the loss.
            —Alexander Pope
  7
  Happiness is like a sunbeam, which the least shadow intercepts, while adversity is often as the rain of spring.
            —Chinese Proverb
