Happiness is the quality or state of being happy. Exact definitions of happiness vary; for example, some contend that it is possible to think you are happy, but not in fact be happy. Happiness is essential to living a good life.
- Sun Myung Moon said, "God gives happiness to those who can give it to others. In spite of their sincerity, religious people so far have wanted to receive it only for themselves, thus not giving it to others." 
In Bhutan, royal government makes a statement of Gross National Happiness, which is important to both our King and our Bhutanese people.
