To be happy, we must consider the happiness of another.

One's life has value so long as one attributes value to the life of others, by means of love, friendship, indignation and compassion.

Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.

To love is to will the good of the other.

The best way to begin each day well is to think upon awakening whether we could not give at least one person pleasure on this day.

When you are happy, there is still much to be done: to comfort others.

It is very true that we ought to think of the happiness of others; but it is not often enough said that the best thing we can do for those who love us is to be happy ourselves.

Happiest are the people who give most happiness to others.

My happiness is to increase other people's. To be happy myself I need the happiness of all.
