In the fianal analysis,happiness comes from a feeling of kinship with the world. an evening of good conversation with congenial friends is about the cheapest form of happiness you can buy - and about the most exhilarating !

I feel there are two type of persons in this world one is extrovert and others are introvert. Those who have this extrovert tendencies are very happy in crowd and when they are having some party or good conversation. While in case of introverts it is other way around, happiness for them is there when they are in their own world and with themselves.

i might. but happiness usually starts from one's self. and most of the time, it starts from contentment. you dont have to be dependent to other people to be happy

Happiness for us is only the return of happiness that we give others. They may be our family members, relatives, friends, far and near ones and even work related persons. If we make as well as care for every persons happiness and welfare, then nothing can stop our happiness and welfare returning from them as a matter of reciprocal response. There is an old saying, "Make all happy to be happy always". Though there are certain practical limitations for us to make all others happy, but at least we must be very careful to eliminate unhappy incidnts or happenings with others always. This, I think will certainly raise our level of happiness and peace. Thanks.

I think happiness is something that begins within you and then goes out; If your not happy with yourself, I don't care what kinship with the world you feel you have. take for example, this shooting that just happened in Virginia, at the college there. Do you really feel that that shooter felt happy being a part of the world? I don't think so; He was unhappy due to something within and he took it out on others in a tragic way. You can't buy this, you work on it.

I must disagree with you. Some of the happiest times in my life, and the times when I felt most at peace, have been when I was completely alone. Perhaps I'm just antisocial, but I've found being by myself and doing what I want without the stress of helping other people be happy. I think you need both times with other people and times of solitude to be truly happy.

I do not think that all happiness comes from others. I think you can make yourself happy too by doing things that you like and not rely on others to do that for you at all times.
