      - Honore de Balzac

Our happiness often depends upon social hypocrisies to which we will never stoop.

      - Honore de Balzac

The world will avenge itself upon all happiness in which it has no share.
      - Honore de Balzac

Human happiness depends mainly upon the improvement of small oppor-tunities.
      - James Lendall Basford

      - Francis Beaumont and John Fletcher

To have been happy, madame, adds to calamity.

The greatest happiness of the greatest number.
  [Lat., La massima felicita divisa nel maggior numero.]
      - Marchese de Cesare Bonesana di Beccaria,
        Trattato dei Delitti e delle Pene (Treatise of Crimes and of Punishment)
         (introduction)

The body is like a piano, and happiness is like music. It is needful to have the instrument in good order.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Priestly was the first (unless it was Becarria) who taught my lips to pronounce this sacred truth--that the greatest happiness of the greatest number is the foundation of morals and legislation.
      - Jeremy Bentham vol. X, p. 142

Happiness is good health and a bad memory.
      - Ingrid Bergman

To be happy with human beings, we should not ask them for what they cannot give.
      - Tristan Bernard

One cannot be fully happy until after his sixtieth year.
      - Carl Victor de Bonstetten

Youth is too tumultuous for felicity; old age too insecure for happiness. The period most favorable to enjoyment, in a vigorous fortunate, and generous life, is that between forty and sixty. Life culminates at sixty.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

No mockery in this world ever sounds to me so hollow as that of being told to cultivate happiness. Happiness is not a potato, to be planted in a mould and tilled with manure. Happiness is a glory shining far down upon us from heaven. She is a divine dew, which the soul feels dropping upon it from the amaranth bloom and golden fruitage of paradise.
      - Charlotte Bronte (used pseudonym Currer Bell)

Happiness is the natural flower of duty.
      - Phillips Brooks

When you look at your life the greatest happiness are family happinesses.

One of the keys to happiness is a bad memory.
      - Rita Mae Brown

People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they're not on your road doesn't mean they've gotten lost.
      - H. Jackson Browne

What can be happier than for a man, conscious of virtuous acts, and content with liberty, to despise all human affairs?
  [Lat., Quid enim est melius quam memoria recte factorum, et libertate contentum negligere humana?]
      - to Cicero Marcus Junius Brutus,
        Cicero's Letters (I, 16)

You should have fallen in love with a happy man, if you wanted happiness. But no, you had to fall for the breathtaking beauty of pain.
      - Lois McMaster Bujold, Barrayar

Happiness and virtue react upon each other,--the best are not only the happiest, but the happiest are usually the best.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city.
      - George Burns

It's no' in books, it's no' in lear,
  To make us truly blest;
    If happiness has not her seat
      And center in the breast,
        We may be wise, or rich, or great,
          But never can be blest.
      - Robert Burns

There comes forever something between us and what we deem our happiness.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)
