A quote from the prophet Joseph Smith:
“Happiness is the object and design of our existence; and will be the end thereof, if we pursue the path that leads to it; and this path is virtue, uprightness, faithfulness, holiness, and keeping all the commandments of God.”
Elder Benjamin De Hoyos:
Happiness is the purpose of the gospel and the purpose of the redeeming Atonement for all men.
President Spencer W. Kimball:
Happiness does not come by pressing a button, as does the electric light; happiness is a state of mind and comes from within. It must be earned. It cannot be purchased with money; it cannot be taken for nothing.
