Happy Quotes Guarantee Happiness

Quotes are wise words that hold a special meaning and are passed down through the ages.

Quotes come from great philosophers, writers, artists, statesmen, heroic figures, educators, sports stars, inspirational and spiritual leaders -- and even Web Wisdom.

Quotes come from every culture in the world, and from ancient times right up to the present with current insights on the latest discoveries and self-realization practices.

Finding happiness is an ancient quest. Today, Sciences offer new answers into the meaning of life and how to assure happiness. From quotes you will find many insights into how to be happy.

How important is happiness? What is happiness anyway? How do you find happiness? What do others have to do with it? What blocks happiness? Is happiness physical or spiritual? What are the shortcuts to happiness? What guarantees a happy life?

"Most people are about as happy

as they make up their minds to be."

Abraham Lincoln

"Optimist: Person who travels on nothing

from nowhere to happiness."

Mark Twain

"Happiness comes when your

work and words are of

benefit to yourself and others."

Buddha

"The foolish man seeks

happiness in the distance;

the wise man grows it under his feet."

James Openheim

"Success is not the key to happiness.
Happiness is the key to success.
If you love what you are doing,
you will be successful"

Albert Schweitzer

The amount of happiness that you have

depends on the amount of

freedom you have in your heart."

Thich Nhat Hanh

"Happiness

is as a butterfly which,

when pursued,

is always beyond our grasp,

but which if you will sit down quietly,

may alight upon you."

Nathaniel Hawthorne

How important is a Happy Life?

Happiness makes life worth living.

Everything that everyone does is because they think it will make them feel better. Feeling good is a natural inclination that all people share. We naturally avoid pain and seek pleasure. Seeking happiness is a common bond between everyone. Nothing is more important to your metal health than good relationships with others.For many their happiest relationships are with animals or nature. Wherever happiness is found - there is your heart and your values too.

"The purpose of life

is to be happy."

Dali Lama


"Happiness is the meaning

and the purpose of life,

the whole aim and end

of human existence."

Aristotle

"Until you are happy

with who you are,

you will never be happy

with what you have."

Zig Ziglar


"What everyone wants from

life is continuous and

genuine happiness."

Baruch Spinoza

"My life has no purpose,

no direction, no aim,

no meaning, and yet I'm happy.

I can't figure it out.

What am I doing right?"

Charles Schulz

Do you see similarities or differences?

See all 27 photos

If you enjoy the similarities you see in life - you will be happy.

If you enjoy the difference you see in life...and appreciate the uniqueness of yourself and others - you find happiness.

If you see yourself or others as inadequate or not fitting in - you feel unhappy.

How you view life is your choice. Why not make a happy choice?

"Happiness is a conscious choice,

not an automatic response."

Mildred Barthel

"Simply put, you believe that things

or people make you unhappy,

but this is not accurate.

You make yourself unhappy."

Wayne Dyer

"Some cause happiness

wherever they go;

others whenever they go."

Oscar Wilde

"People take different roads

seeking fulfillment and happiness.

Just because they're not on your road

doesn't mean they've gotten lost."

Dalai Lama

"Remember that happiness

is a way of travel,

not a destination."

Roy Goodman

"It is not easy

to find happiness

in ourselves, and

it is not possible to

find it elsewhere."

Agnes Repplier

"The essence of philosophy ---

man should so live that his happiness

shall depend as little as possible

on external things."

Epictetus

Choose To Be Happy

Make room for happiness - Make happy choices

People complain about being unhappy all the time. Who is responsible for your unhappiness? No one. Your choices determine your happiness: Happiness comes to those who choose to look for and find a happy outlook. There is always an opening to a brighter world: Find it and break through.

"Cheerfulness in most cheerful people,

is the rich and satisfying result

of strenuous discipline."

Edwin Percy Whipple


"If you want to be happy, BE."

Leo Tolstoy

"Happiness is a habit - cultivate it."

Elbert Hubbard

"Being happy is something

you have to learn.

I often surprise myself

by saying- "Wow, this is it.

I guess I'm happy.

I got a home I love.

A career that I love.

I'm even feeling

more and more at

peace with myself."

If there's something else

to happiness, let me know.

I'm ambitious for that, too."

Harrison Ford

"To fall in love with yourself
is the first secret to happiness."

Robert Morely

"What can I do with my happiness?

How can I keep it, conceal it, bury it

where I may never lose it?

I want to kneel as it falls over me like

rain, gather it up with lace and silk,

and press it over myself again."

Anaïs Nin

"Act happy, feel happy, be happy,

without a reason in the world.

Then you can love,

and do what you will."

Dan Millman

Open Yourself to Happiness



Like a flower in bloom, the feeling of happiness opens you to a whole new world of possibilities. Leave no room for negatives and focus on what lies ahead. You will be surprised at the things that you are capable of doing when you are happy!

"Happiness is excitement that

has found a settling down place.

But there is always a little

corner that keeps flapping around."

E.L. Konigsburg

"What we call the secret of happiness

is no more a secret than our

willingness to choose life."

Leo Buscaglia

"There are two ways of being happy:

We must either diminish our wants or

augment our means -- either may do --

the result is the same and

it is for each man to decide

for himself and to do that

which happens to be easier."

Benjamin Franklin

"Most people ask for

happiness on condition.

Happiness can only be felt

if you don't set any condition."

Arthur Rubinstein

"Happiness often sneaks in

through a door

you didn't know you left open."

John Barrymore

"Being happy is our

natural state of mind

that's why we say we're

head over heels

when we're happy."

Mohtasham Usmani

"Now and then

it's good to pause in

our pursuit of happiness

and just be happy."

Guillaume Apollinaire

Have you ever felt so happy that you could not sit still, breathe normally and contain it all inside you? A feeling you just have to share with someone else? You have the symptoms of happiness alright! Watch out, it spreads fast and others might catch it!

"Happiness is contagious...

when you reflect happiness,

then all others around

you catch the happy

bug and are happy, too."

Jennifer Leese

"Sometimes it's hard to avoid

the happiness of others."

David Assael

"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

"Happiness is like a kiss.

You must share it to enjoy it."

Bernard Meltzer


"Happiness quite unshared can

scarcely be called happiness;

it has no taste."

Emily Bronté

"All who would win joy

must share it;

happiness was born

a twin."

Lord Byron


"Those who bring sunshine

into the lives of others cannot

keep it from themselves."

James M. Barrie

"I am a kind of paranoiac in reverse.

I suspect people of plotting

to make me happy."

J. D. Salinger

"Who is the happiest of men?

He who values the merits of others,

and in their pleasure takes joy,

even as though 'twere his own."

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

with nine million dollars."

What IS happiness?

Happiness is living life in your own way and on your own terms

Happiness is not confined in just one word. It is a thousand things - and more. Like the sunlight, it finds its way between the tiniest holes and gaps only to burst into a thousand rays that keeps the heart aglow.

"The rays of happiness,

like those of light,

are colorless

when unbroken."

Henry W. Longfellow

"Happiness is your natural state

when you suddenly recognize

how good life really IS."

Cheryl Janecky


"Rainbow Happiness is not

in our circumstances,

but in ourselves.

It is not something we see,

like a rainbow, or feel,

like the heat of a fire.

Happiness is

something we are."

John B. Sheerin

"One thing is sure.

You can't have darkness

and light in the same place

at the same time.

The cure for a gloomy

outlook is a Lighted mind."

A. P. Gouthey

"Even a happy life cannot be

without a measure of darkness,

and the word happy would lose its

meaning if it were not

balanced by sadness.

It is far better take things

as they come along with

patience and equanimity."

Carl Jung

"Happiness is a direction,

not a place."

Sydney J. Harris

"Happiness comes of the

capacity to feel deeply,

to enjoy simply,

to think freely,

to risk life,

to be needed."

Storm Jameson

    Paying Attention to Happy Choices

    Accepting and embracing happiness

    Life is your mirror and what you see outside of you is but a reflection of what is inside. Notice what you see and make new choices. Very soon you will see more happy outcomes.Do you hold back when you start to feel happy? Some people feel guilty and think they don't deserve to be happy. Focus on the feeling and pay attention to how you respond to that feeling. Observe every detail. If you truly pay attention to it, you will be surprised at your own reaction - laughing, giggling, excited gestures - that's happiness kicking in.

    "You can have whatever

    you want in life

    if you're willing --

    to pay attention."

    Taneo Sands Kumuli

    "The capacity for delight

    is the gift of

    paying attention."

    Julia Cameron

    "Happiness consists not

    in having, but of being,

    not of possessing,

    but of enjoying.

    It is the warm glow of a

    heart at peace

    with itself."

    Norman Vincent Peale

    "I think the one

    lesson I have learned

    is that there is

    no substitute for paying

    attention."

    Diane Sawyer

    "There is only one

    way to happiness,and

    that is to cease

    worrying things which are

    beyond the power of

    our will."

    Epictetus

    "There can be no happiness

    if the things we believe

    in are different from the

    things we do."

    Freya Stark

    Happiness that is shared is real happiness. If you take time to make other people happy, you can't help feeling happy yourself. Animals, nature and activities are a good source of happiness.

    "Happiness is like a perfume,

    you can't spread it around

    without pouring a few

    drops on yourself."

    James Van Der Zee

    "We act as though

    comfort and luxury were

    the chief requirements of

    life, when all that we need

    to make us really happy

    is something to be

    enthusiastic about."

    Charles Kingsley

    "Happiness

    is a warm puppy."

    Charles Schulz

    "Animals are reliable, many full of love,

    true in their affections, predictable

    in their actions, grateful and loyal.

    Difficult standards for people

    to live up to."

    Alfred A. Montapert

    "The greatness of a nation

    and its moral progress

    can be judged by the way

    its animals are treated."

    Gandhi

    "Be happy when alone.

    Let happiness be your quality.

    And when you move from aloneness

    into involvement, into communication,

    relationship, carry that quality of happiness

    which was in loneliness - carry that."

    Osho

    "When I meet people from other cultures

    I know that they too want happiness

    and do not want suffering,

    this allows me to see them as brothers and sisters."

    Dalai Lama

    "Joy has nothing to do with material things,

    or with man's outward circumstance...A man

    living in the lap of luxury can be

    wretched, and a man in the depths of

    poverty can overflow with joy."

    William Barclay

    Happiness Is Found Within You

    The love you feel for others is IN you, not out in the world

    Happiness is the gift you give yourself and the gift you share with others.

    "Celebrate the happiness

    that friends are always giving,

    make every day a holiday

    and celebrate just living!"

    Amanda Bradley

    "Happiness cannot come from without.

    It must come from within.

    It is not what we see and touch

    or that which others do for us

    which makes us happy;

    it is that which we think and feel and do,

    first for the other fellow

    and then for ourselves."

    Helen Keller

    "It only takes one joy to lift a

    spirit...and blessed be

    the person who will give it."

    Amanda Bradley

    "True happiness arises, in the first place,

    from the enjoyment of one's self,

    and in the next, from the friendship

    and conversation of a few select companions."

    Joseph Addison

    "Laughter is not at all a bad beginning

    for a friendship, and it is far the

    best ending for one."

    Oscar Wilde

    "The most I can do for my friend

    is simply to be his friend.

    I have no wealth to bestow on him.

    If he knows that I am happy in loving him,

    he will want no other reward.

    Is not friendship divine in this?"

    Henry David Thoreau

    "Celebrate the happiness that

    friends are always giving,

    make every day a holiday

    and celebrate just living!"

    Amanda Bradley

    "Friends are needed

    both for joy and for sorrow."

    Samuel Paterson

    "In the sweetness of friendship

    let there be laughter, and

    sharing of pleasures."

    Kahil Gibran

    "The happiness of life

    is made up of minute fractions.

    The little soon forgotten

    charities of a kiss or a

    smile, a kind look, a heartfelt

    compliment, countless infinitesimals

    of pleasure and genial feelings."

    Samuel Taylor Coleridge

    Your Attitudes Determine Your Happiness - Choices set your happiness in motion - or not

    See all 27 photos

    Do you feel extremely happy one day and extremely sad the next? This drastic shift of emotions has a lot to do with your attitude. Your attitude towards life, to the people around, with your relationships, etc. affects the level of happiness that you feel.

    "Happiness is an attitude.

    We either make ourselves

    miserable, or happy and

    strong. The amount of

    work is the same."

    Francesca Reigler

    "Attitudes are contagious.

    Are yours worth catching?"

    Dennis and Wendy Mannering

    "Attitude is a little

    thing that makes a

    big difference."

    Winston Churchill

    "The basic thing is that everyone

    wants happiness,

    no one wants suffering.

    And happiness mainly comes

    from our own attitude,

    rather than from external factors.

    If your own mental attitude

    is correct, even if you remain

    in a hostile atmosphere,

    you feel happy."

    Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama

    "Happiness is an attitude

    of mind, born of the simple

    determination to be happy

    under all outward circumstances."

    J. Donald Walters

    "A happy person is not a

    person in a certain set of

    circumstances, but rather a

    person with a certain

    set of attitudes."

    What Stops Your Natural Happy State?

    It's not what happens but how you respond to life.

    Life just happens and both good and bad happen to everyone. Even saints have bad days. It is not what happens that determines your fate or outcome - but how you respond to your life. You determine your own happiness through the choices you make.

    "Stress is the trash

    of modern life -

    we all generate it

    but if you don't

    dispose of it properly,

    it will pile up and

    overtake your life."

    Danzae Pace

    "We all have the ability

    to determine our happiness

    hour-by-hour and day-by-day,

    through our thoughts

    and actions.

    And our happiness

    relates to how much

    stress we experience.

    When a person is happy

    and has a good

    outlook on life,

    their stress levels

    are lower."

    Catherine Pulsifer

    Stress and Fear Block Happiness

    "Our doubts are traitors,

    and make us lose the good

    we oft might win,

    by fearing to attempt."

    William Shakespeare

    Of all the liars in the world,

    sometimes the worst

    are your fears."

    Rudyard Kipling

    Most learn what to fear in childhood and soon it becomes a habit that just takes over. Most of what you learned to fear is no longer true. The fear is not out in life: it is inside you. Take the risk to look for and find the fear. Only when you stop responding to the fear can you make happy choices.

    The first step is releasing stress and tension.

    "How much pain

    they have cost us,

    the evils which

    have never happened."

    Thomas Jefferson

    When stress is all that your physical body is feeling, feeling happy is impossible. Stress prepares you to run or fight. Stress makes it increasingly hard for you to find pleasure in doing things. Eliminating stress makes room for positive emotions to sneak in and flourish -- starting with happiness.Are you afraid to be happy? Some people are afraid it won't last or won't happen. Fear handcuffs happiness. Let go of your fears. Only when you are able to let go of your fears can you truly be happy.

    "Where the fear is,

    happiness is not."

    Seneca

    "We love to the

    degree we're happy.

    While we are unhappy

    and attending to our fears,

    we are not loving.

    The self is always crying out

    for acceptance.

    When we deny it that acceptance,

    things get hairy.

    Our attention gets sucked into

    a void inside ourselves,

    leaving nothing left to

    give to another."

    Jennifer Hautman

    "Happiness is a form of courage."

    -Holbrook Jackson

    "If fear alters behavior,

    you're already defeated."

    Brenda Hammond

    "Too many of us are not

    living our dreams because

    we are living our fears."

    main cause of 85% of all illnesses.

    Your Natural State of Happiness is Physical - You are only happy when your body is happy

    See all 27 photos

    Your body responds differently to every emotion. When you are depressed, withdrawn and say "NO" to life, your body retreats and refuses to play. When you are excited, you jump with joy.

    When you are afraid, your body trembles and prepares for flight or fight.

    When you say "YES" to life and look forward to your day, your cells respond and create health. And when you are happy, your body smiles and radiates all over. Do you want your body to always be in tiptop shape? Then BE happy.

    Happiness and Soul Searching

    Happiness Thrives on Inner Peace and a Spiritual Connection

    Does being happy connect you with your Source? Certain levels of happiness can only be achieved in Silence.Take the time to reflect and contemplate about life and what activities you can do to enrich your soul. Nature is an inspiration and refreshes your spirit.

    "To live happily is an inward

    power of the soul."

    Aristotle

    "People spend a lifetime

    searching for happiness;

    looking for peace.

    They chase idle dreams,

    addictions, religions, even other

    people, hoping to fill

    the emptiness that plagues them.

    The irony is the only

    place they ever needed

    to search was within."

    Ramona L. Anderson

    "Finding happiness is like

    finding yourself.

    You don't find happiness,

    you make happiness.

    You choose happiness.

    Self-actualization is a

    process of discovering who

    you are, who you want to be

    and paving the way to

    happiness by doing what

    brings YOU the most meaning

    and contentment to your life

    over the long run."

    David Leonhardt

    "Happiness is within you.

    When you stop the

    chatter of the mind

    and expel your worries

    and fears you find

    out that happiness surfaces

    from within you."

    Remez Sasson

    "Happiness is an inner

    state of well being.

    A state of well being

    enables you to profit

    from your highest: thoughts,

    wisdom, intelligence,

    common sense, emotions,

    health, and spiritual values

    in your life."

    Lionel Ketchian

    "The best remedy
    for those who are afraid,

    lonely or unhappy is to go outside,

    somewhere where they can be quiet,

    alone with the heavens, nature and God.

    that all is as it should be

    and that God wishes to see people happy,

    amidst the simple beauty of nature."

    And in only one of these

    lies happiness."

    Gelett Burgess

    John D Rockefeller

    People often find unconditional happiness in the simple companionship of someone they love and who loves them. Make duplicates of your keys to happiness and give them to friends. If you lose yours, they will always have your spare.For some the loving exchange is with children, for some a mate and for some pets or a creative project.

    the happiness of another."

    Gratitude Is A Shortcut to Happiness - The more you feel love and appreciation the happier you are

    See all 27 photos

    Look around right now and find -- "...what's right in this moment." The more you see what's right with the world, the happier you become. When you see where you are as safe and beautiful - it is very easy to be happy.

    "A grateful environment

    is a substitute for happiness.

    It can quicken us from without

    as a fixed hope and affection,

    or as the consciousness of a right life,

    can quicken us from within."

    George Santayana


    "Little deeds of kindness,

    Little words of love,

    Help to make earth happy

    Like the heaven above."

    Julia Carney

    "Gratefulness is the key

    to a happy life that we hold

    in our hands, because if

    we are not grateful,

    then no matter how

    much we have we

    will not be happy --

    because we will always

    want to have something

    else or something more."

    David Steindl-Rast

    "Happiness comes of the

    capacity to feel deeply,

    to enjoy simply, to

    think freely, to risk

    life, to be needed."

    Storm Jameson

    "Happiness cannot be traveled to,

    owned, earned, worn or consumed.

    Happiness is the experience of living

    every minute with love, grace and gratitude."

    Denis Waitley

    "All happy people are grateful.

    Ungrateful people cannot be happy.

    We tend to think that being unhappy

    leads people to complain, but it's truer

    to say that complaining leads to

    people becoming unhappy."

    Dennis Prager

    Share Happiness and It Grows

    Your happiness depends on your relations with others

    Happiness is best when shared with others. Share your smile, share your good wishes, share your joy, share your quiet moments, share your love.Open your heart and make the time to allow others to share their happiness with you too. Receiving a gift graciously is a gift back to the giver.

    "Celebrate the happiness

    that friends are always giving,

    make every day a holiday

    and celebrate just living!"

    Amanda Bradley

    "Happiness held is the seed;

    happiness shared is the flower."

    Indian Proverb

    "It only takes one joy to lift a

    spirit...and blessed be

    the person who will give it."

    Amanda Bradley

    "True happiness arises, in the first place,

    from the enjoyment of one's self,

    and in the next, from the friendship

    and conversation of a few select companions."

    Joseph Addison

    "Laughter is not at all a bad beginning

    for a friendship, and it is far the

    best ending for one."

    Oscar Wilde

    "The most I can do for my friend

    is simply to be his friend.

    I have no wealth to bestow on him.

    If he knows that I am happy in loving him,

    he will want no other reward.

    Is not friendship divine in this?"

    Henry David Thoreau

    "Celebrate the happiness that

    friends are always giving,

    make every day a holiday and

    celebrate just living!"

    Amanda Bradley

    "Friends are needed

    both for joy and for sorrow."

    Samuel Paterson

    "In the sweetness of friendship

    let there be laughter, and

    sharing of pleasures."

    Kahil Gibran

    "The happiness of life

    is made up of minute fractions.

    The little soon forgotten

    charities of a kiss or a

    smile, a kind look, a heartfelt

    compliment, countless infinitesimals

    of pleasure and genial feelings."

    Samuel Taylor Coleridge

    Guarantee Your Happiness: Create a Happiness Habit

    Learn methods to quickly free yourself from anxiety.

    Do you feel like your life is a roller-coaster ride? Does everything seem to be fine and then suddenly drop into rough times? It is time to smooth out the ride and learn methods to relieve stress. The reward is a happy, relaxed life.Difficult situations happen to everyone - even spiritual leaders. It is not what happens, but what you do about what happens that determines your outcome. Stress limits your thinking and fills your body with toxic hormones, shutting down your immune system.

    Stress underlies physical illnesses AND emotional meltdowns.

    "By removing emotional trauma,

    EFT helps heal physical symptoms too."

    Norm Shealy, MD (Soul Medicine)

    Lean techniques to trigger stress "relief" and you'll find that living happily is easier than you think.

    "Unhappiness may have umpteen reasons.

    Real Happiness has none!"

    Nitin Ram

    An active life is stressful and there is no end to tension and difficult situations. Give up the idea that something is wrong with you when things go wrong. Learn to relieve stress with the new energy methods and assure a happy future. Once you know a method to stop anxiety you are free.

    Experiment with the three new methods and find what works for you. EFT or the Emotional Freedom Technique has been used successfully over 40 years. It is a simple tapping method on acupuncture points to relieve stress. TAT or the Tapas Acupressure Method holds one position and follows an outline of clearing processes. PSTEC is an audio tape that removes stressful memories and trauma. Compare and review the methods with the link below in Featured Lenses.

    "Because of its very high rate of success,

    the use of EFT has spread rapidly,

    and medical practitioners employing EFT

    can now be found in every corner

    of the country and world."

    Dr. Joseph Mercola

    The information is free to begin. Why not give it a try? You have nothing to lose but your stress.

    "Happiness is a conscious choice,

    not an automatic response."

    Mildred Barthel

    Stress Relief Fact: Only YOU can relieve your own stress by relieving the beliefs that cause it.

    "Beliefs have profound biological effects

    throughout every single system of the body.

    If you fail to understand them,

    you can harbor an ongoing stream

    of negative thoughts and emotions

    that make war on your own body."

    Dawson Church, PhD

    "What's interesting about EFT

    is that it is a process that really,

    in some sense, engages...

    like super learning.

    And super learning is like

    pushing the record button

    on the subconscious mind."

    Bruce Lipton, PhD.

    Happiness is your natural state and when you stop the worry and anxiety, happiness emerges in quiet moments.

    "As human beings our greatness lies

    not so much in being able to re-make the world,

    as in being able to re-make ourselves."

    Dawson Church, PhD

    Take a Mini Music Break
    Sing a song, whistle or hum a happy tune
    Play your favorite music all day long!
    Play a piano or guitar or drum

    "Happiness is the soundtrack of my life."

    -Grey Livingston

    "Those who decide to

    use leisure as a

    means of mental development,

    who love good music,

    good books, good pictures,

    good company, good conversation,

    are the happiest people

    in the world."

    William Lyon Phelps

    Dance away your worries
    Salsa or Ball Room or Disco
    ChaChaCha or Swing

    "There are short-cuts to happiness,

    and dancing is one of them."

    Vicki Baum

    Play a happy game or walk the dog
    Play with kids or play with the cat
    Take a child to a movie or to a play
    Take up tennis, golf or swimming

    "It's never too late

    Berke Breathed

    Nature and Beauty Lift Your Spirits
    Walk in the mountains or at the beach
    Take a hike or swim or climb a mountain
    Ride your bike or skate or skip or run.

    "The summit of happiness

    is reached when a

    person is ready to

    be what he is.

    Desiderius Erasmus


    "Judge nothing,

    you will be happy.

    Forgive everything,

    you will be happier.

    Love everything,

    you will be happiest."

    Sri Chinmoy


    "We tend to forget that

    happiness doesn't come

    as a result of getting

    something we don't have,

    but rather of recognizing

    and appreciating what

    we do have."

    Frederick Keonig

    Give a gift or do a favor or cancel a debt
    Cook up a party or visit a relative
    Give flowers or fix dinner or give a massage

    "Since you get more joy

    out of giving joy to others,

    you should put a good deal of thought

    into the happiness that you

    are able to give."

    Eleanor Roosevelt


    "Happiness comes from spiritual wealth,

    not material wealth--

    Happiness comes from giving, not getting.

    If we try hard to bring happiness to others,

    we cannot stop it from coming to us also.

    To get joy, we must give it, and

    to keep joy, we must scatter it."

    John Templeton

    "The good life,

    as I conceive it,

    is a happy life.

    I do not mean that

    if you are good you will be happy;

    I mean that if you are happy

    you will be good."

    Bertrand Russell

    "Happiness is not a brilliant climax

    to years of grim struggle and anxiety.

    It is a long succession of little decisions

    simply to be happy in the moment."

    J. Donald Walters

    Moderation in all things . . too much of anything will not be good for us, be it work, exercise or whatever. Once in awhile, change your routine, your environment, learn and share. We are social beings and sometimes just being with another soul (even if there is little talking) can be a healing presence.

    You did an outstanding job on this lens! I'm putting it on my link option on my lens because my lens is about cystic fibrosis and if any of my readers need some inspiration I'd like them to read your lens. Feel free to check mine out but regardless I'm putting you on mine!

    This is one of the most uplifting lens I have read for the last few days. Thanks for sharing. When you are able to love, to give- you be happy. Yet, you need to be happy to be able to love and to give. Reading your lens makes me happy! Will take days to read & 'absorb' all those wondering quotes. Definitely coming back to read and read again.

    The beach has always been magical for me - the sound of the ocean is so therapeutic, and a swim in the ocean washes away my troubles.

    I must say, the sunny image on this lens is sooo cheerful - I Love it! It reminds me that sometimes a quick happiness break can be taking a look at images I love, sometimes of my son, or places and things I love to see - that's why I love Pinterest :)
