Last quote about World Happiness report

Götz Kubitschek
We don't have an interesting narrative to offer like the U.S., a globally powerful nation where every man can seek his happiness–a dynamic, self-confident nation that can wage wars anywhere in the world. Germany is a nation constantly pondering its guilt, a nation that wonders if it should exist. You can't integrate into such a nation. No young Syrian, Turk or Afghan, would be excited to join a society that is constantly doubting itself.feedback

Luann D'Agostino

The other women are just drumming up drama, and I wish they could find their own happiness. We had an amazing pre-honeymoon in the Bahamas and rented a private cottage with a private golf cart to roam the island and explore. The beaches were incredible but we're looking forward to the major honeymoon in the spring or summer when we hope to travel to Europe on the Orient Express.feedback

Gayle Van Gils

We are bombarded with information and opportunities to be pulled away from the task at hand. When we develop the ability to focus – bring our attention back to the task we are engaged with – our productivity and satisfaction with work will increase.feedback

Gayle Van Gils

While stress is caused by many factors, incessant and unnecessary worry can be interrupted whenever we remember to return our attention to what is actually happening rather than what we fear will happen.feedback

Tim Ferriss

The tool I've found which has proven to be the most reliable safety net for emotional free fall is actually the same tool that has helped me to make my best business decisions. And it is ... Stoicism. And I can trace all of my biggest wins and all of my biggest disasters averted back to doing fear-setting at least once a quarter. It's not a panacea. You'll find that some of your fears are very well-founded. Of the 10,000-plus people I've met in my life, I would put him in the top 10, in terms of success and happiness.feedback

Kathryn Smerling

The mental and physical benefits of taking time off work include improved sleep, a better headspace, more clarity and increased creativity. By taking time off, you'll find a renewed sense of purpose, more energy to carry out tasks and in general, an overall sense of happiness.feedback

Adam Grant

I think about resilience as the speed and strength of your response to adversity. So when you encounter a difficulty, a hardship, a challenge, how quickly and how effectively are you able to marshal strength and either overcome that challenge or persevere in the face of it?feedback

Steve Wozniak

Create jokes, create humor everywhere you go. Pranks are created jokes, for example.feedback

Steve Wozniak

That keeps you happy. Don't be bothered when things don't go your way. Just think out how to be constructive. Don't waste your time blaming people and being all upset, because those feelings destroy your psychology.feedback

George Chauncey

The Annual Reminder was meant to remind the nation on its birthday of the promise of rights, liberty and the pursuit of happiness that had been denied to gay people.feedback

Revolutionary Venezuela is aware of the infinite value of music as a bastion in the fight for equality and happiness.feedback

Chris Maclay

When people understand themselves better, there's a greater chance of flourishing and fulfilment. That would be nice, wouldn't it?feedback

Chris Maclay

I don't think we're discovering a massive amount of new wisdom here. It's been there for a long time, we've just lost sight of it.feedback

Chris Maclay

I'm guilty of thinking life is just how it is, and that you can't make a difference to how you feel - you just go with whatever you're dealt with. But [the workshops show] you can make an impact on your own state of wellbeing, which is quite exciting.feedback

Chris Maclay

If I'm feeling stressed I'll put the TV on - I just drown out any feelings of emptiness by filling it up with something, which is what I tell everybody not to do. We have to discipline ourselves to respond to our feelings and go to the right places to answer them.feedback

Donald Manford

She was often, despite her young years, called on to do these things and she did it easily and people found it easy to call on her. She was a bright, bright young person, always had a smile for people and easy to approach and easy to engage with.feedback

Arundhati Roy

If we had a keen vision and feeling of all ordinary human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow and the squirrel's heartbeat, and we should die of that roar which lies on the other side of silence.feedback

Arundhati Roy

I worry that I am allowing myself to be railroaded into offering prosaic, factual precision when maybe what we need is a feral howl, or the transformative power and real precision of poetry.feedback

Arundhati Roy

Oh wow! Kashmir! What funnn! Apparently it's completely normal now, ya, safe for tourists. Let's go? It's supposed to be stunning.feedback

Giorgio Chiellini

Compared to us Italians they bring a little happiness and light-heartedness. You need it at this point of the season. We Italians can be a bit harder, more serious.feedback

Brian Wong

Happiness and success are two very different things. Being successful is having the freedom and the options available to you to do anything and everything you want. You could have all the money in the world, but if you don't have the right person to call or the right set up to travel or the freedom to delegate or to find the right person to help you with this, you end up being stuck. When you have as much optionality around you as possible, you're never stuck, and that is what I think is the most conducive to what is defined as ... success.feedback

Brian Wong

And then outside: Are people around you that can make you happy, keep you happy and if you aren't happy, to help address those things and that you can have that healthy dialogue with? This is really a conversation about mental health, because as an entrepreneur there's a lot of moments where you are questioning yourself and then there are also are moments where you're down emotionally on yourself. But it's not just an internal struggle, it's always important to have people around you that can help make sure that you're lifted.feedback

Brian Wong

To be happy in my opinion is to have a combination of satisfaction and emotional support both within and and outside. Emotional support within is of course your own peace with yourself yourself – how secure you are, how you feel about your current situation.feedback

Chloe Lattanzi

Cancer is the disease of our generation and it is part of my and my mother's quest to beat this insidious monster. We both love you all, and anyone fighting this disease you can beat it. Look for natural remedies as well as what modern medicine can offer. My mom is so powerful she will beat this in no time. All my love to you. And I wish you health wealth and happiness.feedback

John Harbaugh

I told the guys go home and enjoy your families. It may be the most important holiday of the year. Do we all enjoy getting in a car and driving where we want, doing what we want? Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

Finding your purpose isn't enough. The challenge from our generation is creating a world where everyone has a sense of purpose. A purpose is what creates true happiness.feedback

Nemanja Nikolic

I saw the atmosphere. The love and the happiness was there. I could see how they fight and how they want to win and how they practice day by day. My dad, I wanted to be like him.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

You know it's really hard. That's why yesterday we didn't want to have the press conference, because we had to prepare ourselves to do our job and try to forget events that are much more important than our job. But the world goes on, it doesn't stop and we have to do our work and I agree with the Uefa decision to play the match but if we have questions like your questions that made us return to this tragedy, obviously it takes happiness from our achievement.feedback

Ben Carson

There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships. They too had a dream that one day their sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, great grandsons, great granddaughters might pursue prosperity and happiness in this land.feedback

Jonathan Daniel

Going to watch a show or a sporting event as a kid is one of life's true moments of happiness.feedback

Tsai Ing-wen

In the face of love, everyone is equal. I support marriage equality. Every person should be able to look for love freely, and freely seek their own happiness.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

I agree with Uefa's decision to play the match now. It obviously takes happiness from our achievement. If we could we would change peoples lives for this cup – we would not think twice. Does this cup make the city of Manchester a bit happier? Maybe. But we came to do our job and we can't avoid the happiness because when you win you go away happy and proud. The boys were fantastic. They put on a block and stayed away from everything and concentrated on a football match, which we did very well.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

Obviously, there's happiness from our achievement. But if we could, we'd change the peoples' lives for this cup. We wouldn't think twice. Does this cup make the city of Manchester a little bit happier? Maybe.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

We are all very sad about the tragic events last night, we cannot take out of our minds and our hearts the victims and their families. We have a job to do and we will fly to Sweden to do that job. It is a pity we cannot fly with the happiness that we always have before a big game. I know, even during my short time here, that the people of Manchester will pull together as one.feedback

Nancy Tellet

People say [during interviews] that family is where your happiness comes from, where your satisfaction comes from. People would say, I don't have friends, I have cousins.feedback

Kenneth Feld

From the bottom of our hearts we want to say thank you all very much, and please enjoy and celebrate the Greatest Show on Earth one last time... It's always been our goal to be able to share with families the incredible experience, the joy, the happiness and the wonderment of the Greatest Show on Earth – and I think we've accomplished that goal.feedback

Antonio Conte

It's not all happiness and light. The arrival was, but the journey wasn't. With my wife Elisabetta in January we decided that Vittoria would finish school in Turin, even if she was already registered to start in London.feedback

Aisha Tyler

This was not a court-ordered settlement, as reported, but a mutual agreement reached amicably by two people who intend to remain lifelong friends. I wish nothing but happiness and fulfillment for Jeff in his life going forward. He is not a public figure, and I pray the media will allow him the privacy and respect he is entitled to and very much deserves.feedback

Hassan Rouhani

Any candidate who is elected should be helped to accomplish this heavy responsibility. Anyone who is elected must be helped from tomorrow with unity, happiness and joy.feedback

Bibiana Steinhaus

[Referees chief] Lutz Michael Frohlich and his team are in constant exchange with us referees. That's why I was not particularly surprised when he called me on Wednesday. When he informed me in our telephone call about the decision of the referee's commission, I was quite speechless. Disbelief, joy, happiness, relief, curiosity, I do not know. It was simply a turbulent roller coaster ride of emotions. It has always been my dream to referee in the Bundesliga. That this dream is to become true now naturally fills me with great joy.feedback

Brendan Rodgers

The finances involved in the Premier League and the challenge there is huge, but I've found a real happiness here. I could go elsewhere and be financially a lot better off but I've learned through time and experience that it's more than that.feedback

Joanna Gaines

I used to want to do everything, be everything. This may make me sound like a textbook control freak and I probably was. There was something more sinister hiding in my best-laid plans. I realize now that I found my self-worth neatly packaged together with all that I did. I love creating beauty. That's my lane.feedback

Bill Gates - Microsoft

Like @WarrenBuffett I measure my happiness by whether people close to me are happy and love me, & by the difference I make for others. That matters because if you think the world is getting better, you want to spread the progress to more people and places. It doesn't mean you ignore the serious problems we face. It just means you believe they can be solved. This is the core of my worldview. It sustains me in tough times and is the reason I love my work. I think it can do same for you. This is an amazing time to be alive. I hope you make the most of it.feedback

Elle King

My soul aches, I am lost. We secretly got married 3 weeks after we met on 2/14/2016. It was and will forever be, one of the happiest days of my life. This photo was taken today, 5/15/2017. A month after what should have been our big wedding ceremony. My heart is broken. My soul aches. I am lost. He is the greatest love of my life. He is my best friend. As we separate, and attempt to find our footing through life, all I can hope for us is that we both find happiness within ourselves. I love you. You'll always have my heart. You'll always be my first husband.feedback

Iago Aspas

It was a great season for Liverpool... I just wish I could have played a bigger part. The corner is the last memory they have of me but football always gives you another chance. Let's hope the new lasting memory of me in England is knocking Manchester United out of Europe, for the sake of Celta Vigo, and for the happiness it would bring to Liverpool supporters too. I don't have to prove anything to anyone in England because I went there with the Spain team and scored at Wembley but to score a goal in this game would be a dream come true.feedback

Barry Manilow

I didn't know what was going to happen … but I should have known better because my fans, and frankly the public, they care about my happiness and I have always known that.feedback

Reza Parastesh

I sent them one night and by the morning they had called me and said I should come in quickly for an interview. Now people really see me as the Iranian Messi and want me to mimic everything he does. When I show up somewhere, people are really shocked. I'm really happy that seeing me makes them happy and this happiness gives me a lot of energy.feedback

Sally Yates

The key to professional happiness and success is pursuing what is meaningful to you and pursuing it with a vengeance. I know way too many people who are in powerful, high-paying jobs who don't get much satisfaction from it. They enjoy the lifestyle, but the work isn't terribly meaningful. That's where I've been incredibly lucky in my professional life. What I do is meaningful to me and has made a difference in the big scheme of things.feedback

Michelle Fait

People who identified very strongly with their work have a harder time with the transition to retirement. For some people, work was just a means to an end, but for those whose self-identity and satisfaction came from their work, it's difficult. They can look at the plan and see that they can afford to spend money on somethin and that it's [a self-imposed, emotional] constraint, not a financial constraint.feedback

Nancy Nelson

He found a group that did RV trips, so he met people who shared his interest.feedback

Michelle Fait

Retirement can be very stressful on couples. With some, women never 'retire' from their household responsibilities, so the prospect of … time free from drudgery might only be true for half of the couple.feedback

Michelle Fait

When you shift from saving to spending, it can be hard for some people. That's where planning really helps.feedback

Nancy Nelson

For some of us, while we're pouring our heart into work ... we don't have time or energy to think about it. Then, when we retire, it can feel something like falling off a cliff.feedback

Nancy Nelson

Part-time work is ideal if you can do it. That's a great step for a lot of people.feedback

Nancy Nelson

He said, Last week I had the flu, and the only people who knew I was sick were my co-workers. That was the first inkling I had that retirement planning isn't just about the money.feedback

Raul Ruidiaz

I'm proud to be part of this group. It's an immense happiness to have achieved the goal. This team had more than enough balls and desire. Thanks to everyone who believed in us and who were with us on this difficult path.feedback

Deborah Carr

The whole idea of marriage as the ideal starts to fade, and personal happiness becomes more important.feedback

Jenny Edwards

The barometer of any nation is the health and happiness of its people. We have made great strides in the health of our bodies, we now need to achieve the same for the health of our minds.feedback

Josh Duhamel

[We] have a lot of love for our son and have a good time together. And that's about it. I'm playing the dad of a 17-year-old kid. I'm that guy now. I don't know really look at myself as that. It's all fleeting.feedback

Allison Ziering

I started to notice little things when he was around a year old, like he wasn't pointing and he wasn't clapping. And my friends' children were. He became sort of a different child. He would cry all the time, he wouldn't look at you. And when you called his name, he would not turn around.feedback

Allison Ziering

They're so protective of each other and they just love each other and they fight like a typical brother and sister, which is perfect. Nobody wants to see their kids fight, but because Ethan is on the spectrum, to see him fighting with his sister is the most beautiful noise I could ever hear.feedback

Allison Ziering

When he was 15 months old, my parents got him this little piano and all of the sudden we would hear tunes like 'Mary Had a Little Lamb' and 'Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star,' thinking it was the TV – and it was Ethan. He always loved music, even as a baby. If I was changing a diaper and needed to distract him, I would play music and he would be quiet. I used to call it musical crack! We got him speech therapy, we got him occupational therapy, anything you could think of and then someone suggested that we might want to get him music therapy.feedback

Allison Ziering

He just blossomed. Socially, psychologically, physically – music had been his outlet and his way of communicating. He recognized that when he played music, he made people happy and people would flock to him.feedback

Allison Ziering

It's just devastating to think that arts programs will be cut. I see how much it brought Ethan along, cognitively and socially. Before Ethan could even talk, music was the way for him to communicate. Study after study promotes the importance of music – music helps the brain, music builds the brain.feedback

Tanja Katrin Hantke

Spontaneous laughter is, of course, always the best, so it's not a question of replacing real happiness, but the combination of stretching, breathing and movement for the positive effects of laughter exercises.feedback

Tanja Katrin Hantke

Laughter has a liberating effect, it stimulates the release of happiness hormones, stabilizes the psyche and relieves stress.feedback

Nick Ferroni

There are so many amazing teachers out there who give their hearts, souls, knowledge and money to their students every single day. Teachers are the only people who have dedicated their lives to the success and happiness of other people's children.feedback

Marine Le Pen

My dear compatriots, I'm not interested in your race, your origin, your sexual orientation, . What interests me is your happiness. And that did hurt me, because I am a daughter.feedback

Jill Filipovic

Women today, live in a world of unfinished feminism, where we're told we're equal but see our basic rights up for grabs, where we're told to just push harder at work, or recognize we can't have it all, or marry Mr. Good Enough. No one, has ever suggested it is her right to be happy.feedback

Jill Filipovic

The complexities of poverty, racism, and sexism keep yanking away, just out of her reach.feedback

Jill Filipovic

If we focus on what makes women's lives happier, healthier, better, more fulfilling, and more pleasurable, many other progressive goals will naturally follow, and we will have a new language with which to frame and advocate for issues of fundamental fairness and egalitarianism.feedback

Jenny Blake

Brainstorm a list of all the activities, all the ingredients that bring you joy. What are the activities, where if you were to get these done in a given day or week, takes you 80 percent of the way toward feeling great? Once you identify your must haves and you core ingredients, think about how you can systematize them and include them in your day-to-day and weekly routines. Block off non-negotiable time on your calendar, to make sure that all these things can get done.feedback

Jenny Blake

It's a great shortcut you can return to at any time, Ask yourself, What can I activate to turn [my life] around?feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

The group was a nice group, honestly. Good people, good boys – committed people. I think Mr Van Gaal left here a good group of boys with very good relations. I think they miss happiness, they miss trust, they miss belief. They miss this extra bit that brings you resilience, brings you fight. When we meet again on July 9 for next season it will be a stronger group. The new players, when they arrive, will find a group more ready to go for big things. But the reality is that we are fighting to win the Europa League and we are fighting to finish fourth. So, let's go.feedback

Bob Myers - Golden State Warriors

It's hard to see a friend go through it. When you look at a health issue – with a friend, family member, your own – everything else stops. It leaves you feeling a little helpless. Sometimes people don't recover. We're moving on. Basketball is what provides him with the most happiness. I'm very, very confident he'll be back coaching, but I can't say when.feedback

Warren Cormier

You have to look at causation. Does money lead to happiness, or do happy people end up making more money? There is a link between happiness and stock market participation. Endorphins are released when people are happier, and this in turn leads among some people to an increased acceptance of risk.feedback

Steve Kilpatrick

A sense of freedom, security, health and purpose are all basic qualities of happiness. Happiness measurements and equity market indexes could both be seen as an inevitable result of economic growth.feedback

Nick Ferroni

There are so many amazing teachers out there who give their hearts, souls, knowledge and money to their students every single day. Teachers are the only people who have dedicated their lives to the success and happiness of other people's children. So, to honor some amazing teachers from my town of Union, I joined forces with some former students who are very successful in their fields to give some amazing teachers a celebrity photoshoot and makeover.feedback

Jack Ma - Alibaba Group

In the next 30 years, the world will see much more pain than happiness. Social conflicts in the next three decades will have an impact on all sorts of industries and walks of life. Machines should only do what humans cannot. Only in this way can we have the opportunities to keep machines as working partners with humans, rather than as replacements.feedback

Molly Lichtenwalner

I grew up on a farm and always had animals around me that gave me so much happiness. I helped train my parents' deaf Old English Sheepdog, and when I came across Otitis, I just knew he was meant for me. I always wanted to adopt an animal that was older and had some special needs; the ones the least likely to find a home (unlike kittens).feedback

Antonio Mohamed

For me, it's an enormous feeling of happiness, for the fans, for the people that work in the club. What's left for us now is to go for the title.feedback

Clare Whitton

I think that happiness shows in the way that they engage, and the way that they don't hesitate. They are not ashamed of the way that they live. They are not ashamed of their faith. I think that I wish that the rest of the world could view them in such a loving way as I do now.feedback

Mikael Sala

France is on the point of disappearing; in two weeks we will be able to put this country in order. The mood is euphoric. France will have the taste of the happiness of having Marine Le Pen as the head of state.feedback

Leroy Sane

The coach worked with Messi every day at Barcelona. So he helped me by giving me the same confidence. That was very sad also. I cannot understand how people act like this. They played free, with a lot of happiness, tried to score in every game and tried to be the best player. So, for me, it has been good to have Pep. He would say to me, Try this, like Messi does' or maybe Neymar. He helped me a lot. Because I was young, when I played against the bigger clubs at the beginning, I was thinking that they are better than me and maybe I was a little bit scared.feedback

Gavin Creel

I think what was so surprising about this production was how moving it is, how emotional. And I think it's because people are in such a state of anxiety right now, that we needed this concentrated burst of happiness. I haven't been in a room full of that many happy people in quite a while.feedback

Penelope Ann Miller

I get so much joy out of seeing them have joy and happiness. It's amazing how much you can love another being.feedback

Tim Minchin

It's really about 'How do you live life?' or 'What is the process you go through to attain happiness?' Big! But then it's funny and silly. I thought it was exciting to keep it a romantic comedy whilst actually talking about death and depression and love.feedback

Nigel Godrich

I like to think that people would still like to live in a world where we might address the problems of climate change, where we might understand that if we empathize with others, it makes us feel happier. Maybe we should start looking at happiness indexes rather than if we win and lose. And if we do that, then we may start to understand that the idea of 'us' and 'them' is actually an illusion.feedback

Dani Alves

I had already spoken before that I would not want to face them, not by fearing them, but by the fact that I did not want to feel that feeling that I ended up feeling, but I believe we have to leave the sentimental part aside when you are wearing other colours and when you live your profession with as much intensity as I live. Neither in their worst dreams [for Barcelona] or in my best dreams I did imagine that this could happen. But this is what happens when you compete a competition of a such high level, where you have to face the best and today we had the happiness of overcoming them.feedback

Agnes Ayton

This large study confirms that optimal nutrition is fundamentally important for physical and mental health. Both being underweight and obese is associated with an increased risk of depression. It is an important finding, as people with eating disorders often assume that losing weight will improve their happiness.feedback

Aman Efrem

If you would have told me 10 years ago I'd be playing lacrosse I would have said, What? What's lacrosse? But now it's my happiness. It gives me drive. It helped me make goals in life. I think everyone should be able to experience that.feedback

Matthew Steel

At a time when economic measures are generally improving, this is not necessarily reflected in how people tell us they are feeling about their lives. Whilst it is too early to say why anxiety ratings have increased slightly and why life satisfaction, happiness and worthwhile ratings have levelled off in the past 12 months, we know from our previous research that factors impacting most on people's personal well-being include health, work situation and relationship status. Publishing this data quarterly, rather than annually, means we can monitor these trends more closely.feedback

Jamie Vardy

We knew it was back in our hands and there was a relief; you feel your body filling again. At the end, you let go: all the happiness and tension. There had been a huge build-up of emotion all year, it had been hard, intense, and for that goal to have give us the title was incredible.feedback

Daniel Ricciardo

My happiness with the balance was probably no better than it was in China. You look at the lap times and sure I am happy, but I don't feel like the grip is massively bigger than we had a week ago. At the same time I do feel that we have learned more than last week. We have learned more what not to do. But I didn't feel what we have learned had translated into half a second. So that is a nice surprise.feedback

Tommy DiDario

We're very low-drama people. We're so low-drama that if we have a disagreement, we can talk it over without raising our voices. So we surround ourselves with like-minded friends who just want complete happiness for one another and thrive on each other's successes.feedback

Tommy DiDario

When Gio is traveling for work and he's been gone for a few days, I've sent thinking-of-you flowers to his hotel room and even chocolate-covered strawberries to just put a smile on his face after a long day of work. I never want him to stop knowing how important his happiness is to me.feedback

Katy Perry

It's not easy loving me. It's a nice place to be. I love it! I wouldn't give anything to go back to my 20s. I had so much ambition and determination, and that's what kept me going. The rocket was riding me for a bit, but now I am riding the rocket. I know that I can bring light and joy and happiness in tiny installments of three minutes and 30 seconds. That does something. I like more androgynous, architectural lately. I am happy to be another interpretation of myself.feedback

Dayana Yochim - NerdWallet

Studies show that people get a lot more lasting happiness when they spend their money on experiences rather than things, and I think that's an important distinction to make here. Even if it's a bad date, you have a story. You have something to laugh about or cry about with your friends. You're getting a lot of mileage out of that $80 date.feedback

Kathryn Bailey

I feel incredible. It's not just me but my family as well, my boyfriend … it's a united feeling of true happiness – like a euphoric feeling. I've finally gotten to the end of the tunnel, and the support I've been getting has helped phenomenally. I feel so amazing I've been able to do that for others. Before the sentencing, I didn't sleep. I had a hard time eating and maintaining a healthy diet. After the case, I can eat now, I can sleep … I feel relaxed. The removal of that weight from my life feels incredible. We feel like we've gotten closure and that's what we needed.feedback

Liza Golden-Bhowjani

Please do not conform to be something that someone else tells you should be in order to be 'perfect,' . No one is perfect. Life is not about being perfect, it is about being the best and happiest version of yourself. There will always be some bad days, but stay focused on happiness that comes from within and you will find that you will also be radiant from the outside. We are all perfectly imperfect, and that's a beautiful thing.feedback

Andy Swan

The thing about airlines is they have a low happiness level to begin with. You see very negative reactions, lots of negative tweets about the brand. But the thing to remember is on airlines' [stock] it almost never matters. Tomorrow we'll be talking about something else.feedback

Jennifer Oakes

I wish you happiness in life & marriage. God bless your growing family. Nevermind the people who would see you remain single forever, with marriage comes sacrifice (both sides).feedback

Marcia Chatelain

Even though I've settled into a life with as much professional fulfillment as personal happiness, I'm still not sure if my ambition is friend or foe.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

And because of his age and because of his happiness in the work, I think he has conditions to be even better.feedback

Stephanie Roof

Every single day [we had] to see him be happy, knowing a huge part of our happiness has been gone.feedback

Xu Xiaoliang - Fosun International

What's important for people is the pursuit of happiness, and that comes in many layers ー clothing, food, housing and transportation. So we're looking for opportunities globally to help serve this middle class.feedback

Tim Robbins

What the program essentially does is get people who are incarnated in touch with their feelings. If there's a predominant emotion in prison, it would be anger. It's the way to survive. Everyone puts on an angry persona in order to be left alone. But when someone does that for years, it tends to deaden them from the other emotions. So we, in the course of theater workshops, encourage them through a character, to express sadness, happiness, and fear.feedback

Eddie Gomez

It was always there to hear [in the music]. Not that his music always sounds like grief and mourning, because there's a lot of happiness in the music, too. In one way, Bill was an open book, but there is some shadow or a mystery as a person or with his personal life. He was a very thoughtful and articulate person; he wasn't glib or casual about his beliefs or how they expressed them.feedback

Matthew Steel

Understanding more about how the oldest age groups rate their personal well-being will help society focus on issues that are fundamental to a good later life.feedback

Younger people are less concerned about the security of their jobs than older people - they don't expect jobs for life. I think they're not that bothered by not being able to buy a house - the older generation expected it, but younger people have given up.feedback

Caroline Abrahams

We tend to forget that many older people have it tough. Later life can present a lonely and frightening time.feedback

Richard Branson - Virgin Group

Paul Burrell

Everything about the day has been perfect, made even more wonderful by the fact my two sons were here to share in the occasion. There's no more hiding my unbridled happiness now. Life is about being true to who you are and, for the first time ever, I'm able to stand proudly beside my husband and say 'This is who I am.feedback

Crystal Abidin

In every one of their videos, there are small gestures shared between them that convinced me the love is real. … When people get invested in [relationships], real life or not, sometimes it's because we're seeking for something we lack in our own lives. We see the love, the chemistry and it warms our heart, so when the source of the happiness is destroyed just like that, there is no doubt that people from the fandom may get very depressed.feedback

Eden Hazard

I just want to bring happiness to the fans. The people who come to the stadium want to enjoy themselves and see a spectacle. It is up to us, the players, to make them happy.feedback

Meg has especially developed into an extraordinary businesswoman, actress, writer, and advocate for women and children. There's a motto that Meg and I have consistently come back to throughout the years: 'I choose happiness'. It's a constant reminder to be self-aware, be uniquely you, be happy and to treat people with respect; to be kind, empathetic and to really learn from those around you in any circumstance . . . Meg does that.feedback

Sergio Ramos

We hope Isco stays. It's better to be at Madrid than to go anywhere else. Isco has to look for balance and happiness. He's taking everything in a calm way, putting everything that's being said to one side, and from there he can be happy and play good football.feedback

Lena Dunham

I'd go off it whenever I broke up with someone or just felt restless. During one of those pill-less periods, I decided I was going to use the contraceptive sponge, newly back on the market. I was visiting a boyfriend and taking an eleven-hour Greyhound bus to get there. I was so excited to have sex and so intent on making it seamless and romantic that I inserted the sponge in the bathroom of the moving bus five hours before we arrived. My periods are painful and disruptive and can put me out of commission, so limiting them to a few times a year is better for my health and happiness.feedback

Barbara Bollier

I'm ecstatic! I am, and I'm high on happiness. The citizens of this state took a stand in November and said we wanted change, and now you're seeing it.feedback

Daniel Simonsen

The judges who rated Norway as better even than Denmark must have visited on a Saturday night. It’s the only time we break our ‘law of Jante’It’s always strange to live in a country that is listed as being one of the very best. When you have everything outwardly, it can make you look inwards. That’s when you sit down and think: “I wonder what Ryan Gosling is doing right now.” People in Syria do not worry about that stuff, for them happiness is something as simple as peace. But if you’re from safe little Norway, you’ve got loads of time to imagine what Ryan is up to. He’s probably eating lunch with Eminem and Benicio Del Toro. You know, just catching up with two old friends. Or maybe he’s just at home feeling kind of down, wondering what’s going on in Leonardo DiCaprio’s life? I’m sure Ryan has things he struggles with too.feedback

Jeff Smokler

Jill and I viewed it as a piece of me that we had to deal with. But we both knew over time that it was becoming a bigger piece of me. I didn't apologize for being gay, I didn't apologize for marrying Jill or duping her because as she said, that wasn't the case. But I still feel that I owe Jill an apology because whether or not it was intentional, I took away moments of happiness. My sexuality and Jill's willingness to stick it out with me definitely changed who she is, and many times, not for the better. So I am very deeply sorry for that.feedback

Darin Gray

It felt really natural to incorporate others into the making of Happiness of Living. It's hard to put into words just what it is, this deep connection we feel with our friends down there, but it is very similar to the feeling of when Glenn and I first met in the studio recording with Jim O'Rourke.feedback

Eileen Paisley

It gave Ian a lot of happiness as well to know that he had left that impression with [him]. His friendship with Martin McGuinness had meant something very special to him.feedback

Jeffrey Sachs

The predominant political discourse in the United States is aimed at raising economic growth, with the goal of restoring the American Dream and the happiness that is supposed to accompany it. But the data show conclusively that this is the wrong approach. Yet the dominant political discourse is all about raising the rate of economic growth, and the prescriptions for faster growth – mainly deregulation and tax cuts – are likely to exacerbate, not reduce, social tensions.feedback

Max Strom

The problem is 90 per cent of human communication is not done through words, it's visual.feedback

Max Strom

In the western world there are probably around 40 per cent of people who are suffering from anxiety or depression, because happiness is plummeting. And it's largely driven by the rise of technology. People are more connected than ever, and yet they have never been more isolated. People are now starving for intimacy. You can't tell tone of voice, or see facial expressions. So when you communicate using text or email, you're having 10 per cent of a relationship. We now have to rely on emoticons to get the true meaning across.feedback

Max Strom

Pregnant women are taught to breathe because it is so beneficial when coping with physical and emotional distress, but nobody else is. So when smokers go out for their break, the rest of the workforce should be allowed to follow them out, to go and breathe in the fresh air. It would have such a big impact. Happiness is something we all want, and yet nobody is educated about how to achieve it. Nobody really thinks what makes them happy, they just think about what gives them pleasure. It's not the same thing. We should teach happiness in schools.feedback

Mark Williamson

Ultimately we want to help create a society that puts people's overall happiness first, rather than focusing just on economic growth. We want to encourage people away from self-obsessed materialistic and unfulfilling behaviour towards a more collaborative and loving way of living.feedback

Max Strom

The internet is the new white sugar. The more you use it, the more you want to use it, and the worse it is for you. People waste so much time on technology and what they don't realise is that time is lifespan. When you kill time, you are killing yourself. Some technology is good. The washing machine has hugely freed up time for people, for example.feedback

The World Happiness Report continues to draw global attention around the need to create sound policy for what matters most to people -- their well-being. As demonstrated by many countries, this report gives evidence that happiness is a result of creating strong social foundations. It's time to build social trust and healthy lives, not guns or walls. Let's hold our leaders to this fact.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

[A minimum of] Three years, I think I will be here, I think the club understood the necessity to give stability to all levels. I believe if we do that, even without a massive success, which is harder in football, even more so in England, but with some type of success, I see myself staying here if they want me to stay. I'm not a type of person to be at a club 10, 15 years, without real success. I need to have true success, my life is like that, I need that pride and happiness. In all honesty, I would like things to go well and be here many years.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

I need to have true success, my life is like that, I need that pride and happiness. In all honesty, I would like things to go well and be here many years. I think the club got so used to winning and having success, maybe they didn't realise other clubs were growing, even when Sir Alex was in his last years at the club. The Premier League were creating conditions for the other clubs to become financially powerful and that has definitely transformed the league. Nowadays all clubs have grown and with TV rights being shared, it's almost unique in European football.feedback

Scott Stapp

After that shattering, a new person has emerged. It's still a work in progress. I haven't arrived by any means, but there's a clarity in my mind.

My faith has been tested a little bit… I don't think God made it happen [the two crashes] but he let it happen…But it's like, if he stopped every bad thing from happening, what would the world be like? My dad taught me how to take care of a woman, how to love a woman, how to love my family. He taught me to do that by showing me how he did it every day.feedback

Anna Khaldie

After 20 years of waiting, I experienced such happiness. For Yevgeny Khaldei, every photo he took was very dear. It's not only the events he photographed but the people who participated in the events. If it was during a military action he was photographing someone who was running in the attack, and in 10 meters he could be dead. In the negative he was still alive and he was running toward victory.feedback

Ngozi Adichie

It's not your job to be likable. It's your job to be yourself. Someone will like you anyway. When I go to play groups for toddlers, I can't help noticing parents always telling the girls to give a toy back, to sit down; the boys, not as much. Why not just have baby clothes organized by age and displayed in all colors? Gender roles are so deeply conditioned in us that we will often follow them even when they chafe against our true desires, our needs, our happiness. I know it sounds cheesy, but we really need to have a more just world – and we can make it happen. I believe people can change.feedback

When the spacecraft reached the orbit, I realized that I wouldn't be able to return to Earth because the ship was programmed to move to a higher orbit instead of deorbiting. I reported the situation to the mission control, they told me how to change the parameters and everything went on without trouble. It was hard, but we realized that we were working to make the country's glory shine and prevent the competitors from thrusting ahead. It was a great happiness to be the first in space.feedback

Richard Branson - Virgin Group

Too many people measure how successful they are by how much money they make or the people that they associate with. In my opinion, true success should be measured by how happy you are.

Abraham Poincheval

It's this strange feeling of a floating world, an incredible floating in this mineral capsule. Yes, there are very strong moments of getting dizzy, where the world is shaking monstrously. It's a moment of happiness, it's a gift, but at the same time one must stay clear-headed. There are very strong moments where you lose yourself, where suddenly you don't know anymore where you are.feedback

Tarek El-Messidi

One of the silver linings of all this divisiveness and hate rhetoric has been the two communities coming together. Historically, we did not work together. People are putting their politics aside and working to fight bigotry together. They need to take a firm stance. It starts with an apology. We are tired of being grouped along with the crazies, they scare us just as much as any American. We need the administration to talk about the 3 million Muslim Americans who just want to pursue life, liberty, and happiness just like everyone else here in America.feedback

Allison Gilbert

Nostalgia is thought to be a fundamental human strength. The more we engage with positive memories (whether it's last week when your job was going better or five years ago when you went on that luxury vacation), the more we're able to glean happiness from them, the easier it is to manage the emotional low points.feedback

Ashton Kutcher

Smartphones and the Internet are like some sort of happiness providers that we keep in our pockets. It's a bit like being drawn to a slot machine in a casino.

Mike Tyson

I won't do anything unless I'm passionate about it, even if I don't get any money. That's why I was talking about peace and happiness; if you're not doing it with passion and love, and you're just doing it for money, then the emotional outcome is going to be disastrous. And that's from my experience, that's just really what I know. So I know it has to be just for pure passion and the love for what I'm doing.feedback

Carsten Brzeski - ING-DiBa
