Felicity Quotations

Human felicity is produced not as much by great pieces of good fortune that seldom happen as by little advantages that occur every day.
Benjamin Franklin

A man's felicity consists not in the outward and visible blessing of fortune, but in the inward and unseen perfections and riches of the mind.
Thomas Carlyle

The mind is never satisfied with the objects immediately before it, but is always breaking away from the present moment, and losing itself in schemes of future felicity... The natural flights of the human mind are not from pleasure to pleasure, but from hope to hope.
Samuel Johnson

Samuel Butler

To strive with difficulties, and to conquer them, is the highest human felicity.
