Sample Quotes on Happinesss:

I asked professors who teach the meaning

of life to tell me what is happiness.

And I went to famous executives who boss

the work of thousands of men.

They all shook their heads and gave me

a smile as though I was trying to fool with them.

And then one Sunday afternoon I

wandered out along the DesPlaines River

And I saw a crowd of Hungarians under

the trees with their women and children

and a keg of beer and an accordion.

--Carl Sandburg

Yes, sitting at the beach and watching a sunset makes me happy. But I don’t ever want to make the mistake of thinking my happiness is dependent on something—a different job, more money, another child, wood floors, a remodeled bathroom.

--Kelle Hampton

—Audrey Hepburn

Unquestionably, it is possible to do without happiness; it is done involuntarily by nineteen-twentieths of mankind.

--John Stuart Mill

There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved.

--George Sand

Some pursue happiness—others create it.

--Ralph Waldo Emerson

A laugh is a smile that bursts.

Talk happiness. The world is sad enough without your woe.

--Orison Swett Marden

Such short little lives our pets have to spend with us, and they spend most of it waiting for us to come home each day. It is amazing how much love and laughter they bring into our lives and even how much closer we become with each other because of them.
