1) Happiness Podcast: Life, Liberty & The Pursuit of Happiness

Happiness must be earned, like other good things, else it cannot be held. It can be deserved only where its price has been somehow paid. Nothing worth having is given away in this world, nor in any other that we know of. No one rides empty headed on the road to happiness. Those who try to do so, never reach their destination. They are left in the dumps. - David Starr Jordan

2) Happiness Podcast: The Key to Freedom & Happiness

Try this method for a year. Forgive everybody for everything, no matter what happens, and do not forget to forgive yourself. You will eventually conclude that forgiveness, absolute forgiveness, is not only the path to complete emancipation, but is also the key to a better life, a larger life, a richer life, a more beautiful life than you ever knew before. - Christian D. Larson

3) Happiness Podcast: The Power of Gratitude

To cultivate a state of contentment, we should live in the conviction that all things are working together for good, and that what is best for us now is coming to us now. The truth is that if we are trying to make all things work together for good (and live in the faith that we can), we actually will so order things in our life that all things will work together for good. And what comes to us every day will be the very best for us that day. - Christian D. Larson

4) Happiness Podcast: Living a Joyful Life Now

The usual way of dealing with the problems of life solves nothing. The ordinary way of meeting temptation gives the tempter greater power, while the person who tries to resist is usually entrapped in adversity and trouble. But here is what we should do under all such circumstances. Count it all joy. That is the secret. Count it all joy no matter what may come; agreeing with all adversity at once, antagonizing nothing; condemning no one, leaving criticism alone. - Christian D. Larson

5) Happiness Podcast: What is Happiness?

Brooding over past suffering or trouble, or over the misery of others, is the deadliest of habits. It is the very apex of self-destructive acts. There is absolutely no virtue in it. It brings no happiness to anyone at any time. What does bring happiness is the joyful acceptance of change. - Ida Luella RettingHouse Lyon

6) Happiness Podcast: The Secret of Being Happy

We must not put off being happy until things shall be as we desire them to be. We must begin right now and be happy, and keep on being happy in spite of everything; while doing all that we know how to do to bring about desired conditions. We do not have to wait long before we notice changes for the better, when we earnestly set about feeding the flame of joy in our hearts. - Ida Luella RettingHouse Lyon

7) Happiness Podcast: The Power of Spoken Words

Every word that is spoken exercises a power in your personal life, and that power will work either for or against you, depending upon the nature of the word. You can talk yourself into trouble, poverty, or disease. And you can talk yourself into harmony, health, and prosperity. In brief, you can talk yourself into almost any condition, desirable or undesirable. - Christian D. Larson

8) Happiness Podcast: Staying Calm in a Stressful Age

Each of us would do well to absorb the following quotation from Marcus Aurelius: "Begin the morning by saying to yourself, I shall meet today with the busybody, the ungrateful, arrogant, deceitful, envious, and unsocial. All these things happen to them by reason of their ignorance of what is good and evil." - George Lincoln Walton

9) Happiness Podcast: The Bright Side of Life

If you want to be happy, if you want to live a contented life, if you want to live a life of genuine pleasure, do something for somebody else. When you feel unhappy, disagreeable, and miserable, go to someone else who is miserable and do that person an act of kindness, and you will find that you will be made happy. - Booker T. Washington

10) Happiness Podcast: The Secret of Happiness on Christmas

To increase your goodwill towards anyone, all that is necessary is to imagine that you are them. Nothing else is necessary. This feat is not easy; but it can be done. Some people have less of this divine faculty of imagination than others, but nobody is without it, and, like all other faculties, it improves with use, just as it deteriorates with neglect. - Arnold Bennet
