    While it sounds like something that Buddha might have said - if he had lived after Freud - it is probably not one of his sayings. A more wise and accurate saying is "You chose how you feel, you choose to be happy or not"

    Very touching. I wonder though if that momentary bliss can stand the heat of all the crap that happens in our lives. Maybe you have to work at it.

    Buddhists remove all desires except for the desire that others continue to do all the necessary work and take all the necessary risks so they can bludge their parasitic existence off them..

    I think it's true that wanting and desire is the cause of much unhappiness.

    Like it. Here is another one

    A man approached the Buddha and told

    Man: I am unhappy

    Buddha: Why?

    Man lists his many problems

    Buddha: my philosophy can not help you with any of those

    Man: so what good is it?

    Buddha: it can only fix one problem. How you react to all the other problems you have.

    Buddhism is all about detaching ourselves from this world and we won't experience pain. Many religions teach that happiness comes from inside of us and not from without.  Nelson Mandala was in prison, he was a social justice advocate in the 1970's, spent over 20 years in prison and spent that time reading and studying.  After his release, he became President or Prime Minster of South Africa.
