#1. Culture is a perversion. It fetishizes objects, creates consumer mania, it preaches endless forms of false happiness, endless forms of false understanding in the form of squirrelly religions and silly cults. It invites people to diminish themselves and dehumanize themselves by behaving like machines. - Author: Terence McKenna
False Happiness quotes by Terence McKenna
#2. All philosophical traditions have attempted to distinguish a sense of emotional well-being that is lasting and "true" from one that is temporary and "false" - an experience that is enduring and independent of circumstance from one that is fleeting because it depends on circumstance. - Author: James Castleton, MD, Mending Of A Broken Heart

#7. My sadness has become so routine that no one notices anymore. It's really good to finally talk about it, but what I have to say runs deeper than that false happiness. I don't sleep properly anymore. I feel I'm just being self-obsessed, trying to impress people as if I were a child. I cry alone in the shower for no reason. I've - Author: Paulo Coelho
False Happiness quotes by Paulo Coelho
#8. To limit yourself to a label of "alcoholic" is masochistic and false if you have awakened a deeper spiritual identity within and have come to know your true self as unconditioned pure awareness. This doesn't mean that recovering alcoholics don't have to be concerned with relapsing, they must always remain vigilant. The power of addiction should not be underestimated. This exercise in vigilance can become a spiritual tool of liberation as well. Always being aware of choosing between real happiness and false happiness is also the discrimination required to attain enlightenment. - Author: Deepak Chopra
False Happiness quotes by Deepak Chopra
#9. Either Christianity is true or it's false. If you bet that it's true, and you believe in God and submit to Him, then if it IS true, you've gained God, heaven, and everything else. If it's false, you've lost nothing, but you've had a good life marked by peace and the illusion that ultimately, everything makes sense. If you bet that Christianity is not true, and it's false, you've lost nothing. But if you bet that it's false, and it turns out to be true, you've lost everything and you get to spend eternity in hell. - Author: Blaise Pascal
False Happiness quotes by Blaise Pascal

#15. Is success just about winning? Acclaim? Trophies? Wealth? Our personal happiness or satisfaction? I have been blessed to experience some of these over the years, and I can answer without batting an eye: No. Accomplishments, applause, awards and fortune are rewards that often come as the result of hard work and a determined spirit, but there is something bigger. Something better. Something that will outlast the winningest season, the plushest corner office, the heftiest bonus and the loudest cheers. That something can only be found when we look beyond the final score. - Author: Tom Osborne
False Happiness quotes by Tom Osborne

#17. From the cranberry cancer scare of the 1950s to the Alar-in-apples hysteria of the 1980s, from the "new ice age" of the 1960s to the "global warming" of the 1990s, environmental alarms almost always turn out to be false. Few non-political scientists fear ozone loss, global warming, or acid rain. These are just issues that some people hope to use to reorder the lives of the rest of us. - Author: Harry Browne
False Happiness quotes by Harry Browne

Let us dream a peaceful earth forever. - Author: Debasish Mridha
False Happiness quotes by Debasish Mridha

She was one of those other people--like Pearson, like Denniston, like the Dimbles--who could enjoy things for their own sake. - Author: C.S. Lewis
False Happiness quotes by C.S. Lewis
#27. They say the most powerful prayer is simply saying "Thank You". And the best way to say "Thank You" is to serve others, to help make our broken world a better place! Inspire everyone at home to pitch in. Remember, the family that serves together is happy – and stays together!! - Author: AVIS Viswanathan
False Happiness quotes by AVIS Viswanathan
#28. My vicinity affords many good walks; and though for so many years I have walked almost every day, and sometimes for several days together, I have not yet exhausted them. An absolutely new prospect is a great happiness, and I can still get this any afternoon. Two or three hours' walking will carry me to as strange a country as I ever expect to see. - Author: Henry David Thoreau
False Happiness quotes by Henry David Thoreau

Happiness is a habit. Cultivate it. - Author: Elbert Hubbard

#30. In a culture that is becoming ever more story-stupid, in which a representative of the Coca-Cola company can, with a straight face, pronounce, as he donates a collection of archival Coca-Cola commercials to the Library of Congress, that 'Coca-Cola has become an integral part of people's lives by helping to tell these stories,' it is perhaps not surprising that people have trouble teaching and receiving a novel as complex and flawed as Huck Finn, but it is even more urgent that we learn to look passionately and technically at stories, if only to protect ourselves from the false and manipulative ones being circulated among us. - Author: George Saunders
False Happiness quotes by George Saunders
#31. Associate with the noblest people you can find; read the best books; live with the mighty; but learn to be happy alone. - Author: Saul Bellow
False Happiness quotes by Saul Bellow
#32. Josh, I'm marrying Sarah in twenty-one days because I can't wait a day longer than necessary to call her my wife. I'm marrying Sarah because I can't wait to declare my undying love for her in front of God and everyone we know. I'm marrying Sarah because she's the air I breathe, the embodiment of my hopes and dreams and my every drop of happiness. Because I want Sarah to be mine, all mine, in every possible way 'til the end of time. Because I never want another man to touch her, ever again - because even the thought of another man touching her makes me homicidal. Because I want to be there for her, for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part - and I want to promise that to her in the most sacred way possible. I'm marrying Sarah because I don't want there to be any doubt in her mind how I feel about her, not even for a moment, for the rest of her life." He scowls at me. "And not because I think I need a motherfucking piece of paper to tell me my love is real or official. - Author: Lauren Rowe
False Happiness quotes by Lauren Rowe
#33. They were tough and sour, but as Pushkin said, 'Dearer to us than a host of truths is an exalting illusion.' I saw a happy man, whose cherished dream had so obviously come true, who had attained his goal in life, had gotten what he wanted, who was content with his fate and with himself. For some reason there had always been something sad mixed with my thoughts about human happiness, but now, at the sight of a happy man, I was overcome by an oppressive feeling close to despair.

False Happiness quotes by Anton Chekhov
#34. Then we were at the fountain - we stop and look up at the many illuminated windows of number 2.
"This is as far as you can walk me," she says. "Thanks for taking me home."
I bowed, not daring to say a word. I doffed my hat and stood bareheaded. I wondered if she would give me her hand.
"Why don't you ask me to walk back with you part of the way?" She says playfully. But she looks down at the tip of her shoe.
"Gee," I answer, "if only you would!"
"Sure, but only a little way."
And we turned around.
I was utterly bewildered, I didn't know which way was up anymore; this person turned all my thinking topsy-turvy. I was enchanted, wonderfully glad; I felt as though I were dying from happiness. She had expressly wanted to go back with me, it wasn't my idea, it was her own wish. I gaze and gaze at her, growing more and more cocky, and she encourages me, drawing me toward her by every word she speaks. I forget for a moment my poverty, my humble self, my whole miserable existence, I feel the blood coursing warmly through my body as in the old days, before I broke down. - Author: Knut Hamsun
False Happiness quotes by Knut Hamsun
#35. Their eyes were brimming,
With the unspoken words
The ice cream left untouched,
And a silence fell. - Author: Jyoti Patel
False Happiness quotes by Jyoti Patel
#36. In all human cultures, the social world has two clear dimensions: a horizontal dimension of closeness or liking, and a vertical one of hierarchy or status ... Now imagine yourself happily moving around your two-dimensional social world, a flat land where the X axis is closeness and the Y axis is hierarchy. Then one day, you see a person do something extraordinary, or you have an overwhelming experience of natural beauty , and you feel lifted "up." But it is not the "up" of hierarchy, it's some other kind of elevation. This chapter is about that vertical movement. My claim is that the human mind perceives a third dimension, a specifically moral dimension that I will call "divinity. - Author: Jonathan Haidt
False Happiness quotes by Jonathan Haidt
#37. The secret of happiness is very simply this: let your interests be as wide as possible, and let your reactions to the things and persons that interest you be as far as possible friendly rather than hostile - Author: Bertrand Russell

#40. His forehead bumped softly against mine, his brilliant silver gaze searing into me. "I plan to keep you, from everyone, for as long as I'm alive. That includes Puck, the false king, and anyone else who would take you away." One corner of his mouth quirked, as I struggled to catch my breath under his powerful scrutiny. "I guess I should've warned you that I have a slight possessive streak. - Author: Julie Kagawa
False Happiness quotes by Julie Kagawa

#42. The happiness of men consists in life. And life is in labor. - Author: Leo Tolstoy
False Happiness quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#43. I believe that the world is one strong matrix, to get out of it you can't safe somebody unless you make it such way so you both die. I believe then... at that moment you are out of the Matrix, but it's just kind of paradox which is 50-50. - Author: Deyth Banger
False Happiness quotes by Deyth Banger
#44. Mental imbalance is about as acceptable as herpes. It's never going to be accepted. But really, it's a disease just like cancer. It just happens, and eats away all the good parts of your brain, like judgment and happiness and perception and memory and life. And you can die from depression just like any other disease. And it's not as if people choose it. So why is it still a joke of medicine? "She died of cancer." is a lot more socially acceptable to people than "She committed suicide. - Author: Sarahbeth Purcell
False Happiness quotes by Sarahbeth Purcell

False Happiness quotes by Debasish Mridha
#46. We will not stand for it any more. No more lies. No more pre-emptive, illegal war, based on false information. No more
God-is-on-our-side religious nonsense to justify this immoral, illegal war. We are here to say most fundamentally, no more inhumanity in the name of our nation. - Author: Rocky Anderson
False Happiness quotes by Rocky Anderson
#47. Many times people come to me to be reassured. They ask, they say, 'I'm feeling very happy and blissful. What do you say?' What is the need to say anything? The very need shows that the happiness is unreal and imaginary. - Author: Rajneesh
