Terrible or not, difficult or not, the only thing that is beautiful, noble, religious, and mystical is to be happy.

— Arnaud Desjardins

The most proven Arnaud Desjardins quotes that will inspire your inner self

Life is movement. The more life there is, the more flexibility there is. The more fluid you are, the more you are alive.


An adult is one who has lost the grace, the freshness, the innocence of the child, who is no longer capable of feeling pure joy, who makes everything complicated, who spreads suffering everywhere, who is afraid of being happy, and who, because it is easier to bear, has gone back to sleep. The wise man is a happy child.


Life is expressed in a perpetual sequence of changes.

The birth of the child is the death of the baby, just as the birth of the adolescent is the death of the child.


On days when the sky is grey, the sun has not disappeared forever.


There are no bad people, only badly loved people.


There is nothing Clever about not being Happy


You cannot live sheltered forever without being exposed, and at the same time be a spiritual adventurer. Be audacious. Be crazy in your own way, with that madness in the eyes of man that is wisdom in the eyes of God. Take risks, search and search again, search everywhere, in every way, do not let a single opportunity or chance that life offers pass you by, and do not be petty and mean, trying to drive a hard bargain.


Saying yes, opening up, and loving: these are the keys that will unlock the prison door.


Happiness is not found, it is created.

Happiness does not depend on all that we lack, but on the way in which we use all that we have


You will never feel loved until you love yourself.


How can I progress on the Way thanks to every day difficulties.


The law commands us to do what we would do naturally if we only had love.

The Way consists of finding that love, which then becomes the law.
