This marvelous question sent me on a two-hour search that ended with my conclusion that this inspiring quote was probably by the "greatest philosopher of all time" - the one I like to call "Hieronymous Anonymous." That is, I found the quote or variations of it all over the internet, but not attributed. The closest I could come was an unsubstantiated suspicion of my own that the original phrase may be Asian in origin, possibly Chinese.

Here are some of the closer variations:
  • The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything they have. (Unknown).
  • Happiness is not having what you want. It's wanting what you have. (Unknown).
  • If you don't enjoy what you have, how could you be happier with more? (Unknown).
  • Happiness is not having what you want. It's wanting what you have. (Unknown).
  • Success is getting what you want; happiness is wanting what you get. -- Dale Carnegie, 1888-1955
  • Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out. -- Art Linkletter
  • Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more. -- H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
