From the Dalai Lama

The key to a happier world is the growth of compassion.  We do not need to become religious, nor do we need to believe in ideology.  All that is necessary is for each of us to develop our good human qualities.

From Unclutterer.com:

Never let anything cross the threshold of your home unless it’s something that you know you need or that you know you will love and cherish for a long time to come.

From the Dalai Lama...

These days, we human beings are very much involved in the external world, while we neglect the internal world…Yet no doctor can give you an injection of mental peace, and no market can sell it to you.  If you go to a supermarket with millions and millions of dollars, you can buy anything, but if you go there and ask for peace of mind, people will laugh.  And if you ask a doctor for genuine peace of mind, not the mere sedation you get from taking some kind of pill or injection, the doctor cannot help you.

From the Dalai Lama

Love, compassion, and concern for others are real sources of happiness.  With these in abundance, you will not be disturbed by even the most uncomfortable circumstances.,  if  you nurse hatred, however, you will not be happy even in the lap of luxury.  Thus, if we really want happiness, we must widen the sphere of love.  This is both religious thinking and basic common sense.
