It’s nothing unusual to feel the blues. So, I picked up a little green book by Ruskin Bond and flipped through it taking in most of the things. And I decided to take note of some happiness quotes that I really liked. Here are fifteen of my favourite happiness quotes from Ruskin Bond’s ‘Little Book of Happiness’
I shall take the heart. For brains do not make one happy, and happiness is the best thing in the world. – L. Frank Baum
Be happy. It’s one way of being wise. – Colette
If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world. – J. R. R. Tolkein
Don’t let one cloud obliterate the whole sky. – Anais Nin
If you can smile when you feel hurt, the hurt is half cured.
Happiness is not the opposite of sorrow. They co-exist; in that acceptance we take the first step towards inner peace. – Ruskin Bond
All of man’s miseries stem from his inability to sit quietly in a room alone. – Blaise Pascal
To be able to laugh and to be able to care – just this much will ensure a good life.
Sometimes there is greater joy in gazing at a mountain than in climbing it.
A hot sun and a hot wind blowing; I go home and I am happy. – An Italian proverb
What if you failed yesterday? Today is not yesterday.
If one day you should lose all your money, who knows – you may become a happy yogi! (If not, make peace with your misery.) – Sadhguru
Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy. – Thich Nhat Hanh
Dear reader, may you have the wisdom to be simple, and the humor to be happy.
And I saved the best for the last. It goes:
To find happiness, look halfway between too little and too much.

Can you believe this bloke compelled me to wear only saris - full time at home- till the eighth month of my pregnancy?! The excessive heat coupled with humidity made my life miserable.
Recently when I browsed an interesting post by a fellow author on this very forum I had a sense of déjà vu. She describes the absolutely unnecessary hullabaloo over ladies donning nighties and /or dupatta –less suits.
I wish to narrate how I was in dire straits so far wearing a ‘nightie’ was concerned.
I lived in my ultra orthodox sasural under constant surveillance of two moral guardians (read Taliban) in the shape of the husband’s mom and dad. The mom was unschooled and dim-witted while the dad was a medical practitioner. But he out-Heroded the Herod in orthodoxy.
My supervisor introduced me as a valuable member of the team, emphasizing my skills and contributions rather than focusing on my gender identity. This simple act set the tone for my experience in the workplace.
As a transwoman navigating the corporate world, I had encountered my fair share of discrimination and challenges. Transitioning without the support of my parents and having limited friendships in my personal life made the journey difficult and lonely. However, when I stepped into the office, something remarkable happened, I left behind the stress and negativity, embracing a space where I could truly be myself.
Joining the marketing team as a graphic designer, I was initially apprehensive about how my colleagues would react to my gender identity. But to my surprise, the atmosphere was welcoming and respectful from day one. My supervisor, Sarah, introduced me as a valuable member of the team, emphasizing my skills and contributions rather than focusing on my gender identity. This simple act set the tone for my experience in the workplace.
As I settled into my role, I discovered that my colleagues went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and included. They consistently used my correct name and pronouns, creating an environment where I could be authentically me. Being an introvert, making friends wasn’t always easy for me, but within this workplace, I found a supportive community that embraced me for who I truly am. The workplace became a haven where I could escape the stresses of my personal life and focus on my professional growth.
