I have been searching for the source of this quotation that is attributed to
Edith Wharton, but the closest I've found is this less concise wording:


Quote:
There are lots of ways of being miserable, but there's only one way of being
comfortable, and that is to stop running round after happiness. If you make
up your mind not to be happy there's no reason why you shouldn't have a
fairly good time.


from The Last Asset (1904), p. 151, as presented electronically by the U of VA:

Thanks for the research. I can't find any source for the more catchy version, so I replaced ours with the authentic one:
