I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition.
In this life, we have to make many choices. Some are very important choices. Some are not. Many of our choices are between good and evil. The choices we make, however, determine to a large extent our happiness or our unhappiness, because we have to live with the consequences of our choices.
James E. Faust
We call that person who has lost his father, an orphan; and a widower that man who has lost his wife. But that man who has known the immense unhappiness of losing a friend, by what name do we call him? Here every language is silent and holds its peace in impotence.
To pursue a goal which is by definition unattainable is to condemn oneself to a state of perpetual unhappiness.
If there were in the world today any large number of people who desired their own happiness more than they desired the unhappiness of others, we could have a paradise in a few years.

All happiness or unhappiness solely depends upon the quality of the object to which we are attached by love.

Edward de Bono

All of our unhappiness comes from our inability to be alone.
Jean de la Bruyere
Much unhappiness has come into the world because of bewilderment and things left unsaid.
Nothing is funnier than unhappiness, I grant you that. Yes, yes, it's the most comical thing in the world.

Joseph B. Wirthlin
It takes patience to appreciate domestic bliss; volatile spirits prefer unhappiness.
We create our own unhappiness. The purpose of suffering is to help us understand we are the ones who cause it.
Just try to be happy. Unhappiness starts with wanting to be happier.
Happiness is the interval between periods of unhappiness.
When a mother quarrels with a daughter, she has a double dose of unhappiness hers from the conflict, and empathy with her daughter's from the conflict with her. Throughout her life a mother retains this special need to maintain a good relationship with her daughter.
To be happy is only to have freed one's soul from the unrest of unhappiness.
Happiness is not always through success. Equally, the constant pursuit of success is sure unhappiness. But we have to find the balance. My own thoughts are that parenting is very personal.
