What is Happiness?

What is Happiness

“HAPPINESS is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.” – Aristole

Franklin D. Roosevelt

“HAPPINESS is not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort” – Franklin D. Roosevelt

Mahtama Gandhi

“HAPPINESS is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony” – Mahatma Gandhi

Eckhart Tolle

“THE PRIMARY cause of unhappiness [and happiness] is never the situation but your thoughts about it.” – Eckhart Tolle

Martha Washington

“THE GREATER part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions, and not on our circumstances. We carry the seeds of the one or the other about with us in our minds wherever we go” – Martha Washington


“THOUSANDS of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared” – Buddha

Modern science defines
as the positive range of emotions that we feel when we are content or full of joy.

At Coca-Cola our definition is just a little bit simpler. Happiness to us is anything that can bring a smile to someone's face. We're in the business of spreading smiles and opening happiness every day all across the world. We know we might not change the world over night, but if we can add just a few smiles to the world then we've done our job.

Since the dawn of time the human race has sought intensely after the pleasure and lightness that true happiness brings. The quest for true happiness is one that every person will adventure on.

What is Happiness?

So what is happiness?
Great philosophers, religious leaders, writers and thinkers throughout human history have asked themselves this basic question. Through their wisdom we can learn and maybe take just one more step on our own happiness journey.

Sometimes you'll find that happiness finds you when you least expect it.

Like Coca-Cola, these great men and women each asked themselves the same core question – what is happiness? While each of their own definitions differ, each touches on a similar cord that we must all come to realize. The quest for true happiness is not really a quest at all, but a decision and a choice. So don't wait another moment. Open an ice cold Coca-Cola and choose happiness!
