Quotes About Happiness

I was thinking about happiness and went looking for some good happiness quotes. It’s something that we really all do need to find for ourselves. It’s my honest belief that happiness has to come from within ourselves…If we aren’t happy, never will we be able to make anyone else happy. Also, the thought that only happiness can be reachedΒ by another person or personsΒ handing it to us? That’s so not going to happen, that’s just the way it is in real life.Β Maybe I’m not saying it the right way, I’m sure the quotes speak better than I can. I hope you kind readers enjoy them! πŸ™‚

    • I just got back from your blog Soma and here you are, Yay! πŸ™‚ Thank you for loving the post and that Oscar Wilde quote made me laugh too…I just had to have it in the quotes just for fun.

  3. Nice quotes on happiness and all so very true. I don’t know the author of this following verse from a poem, but always liked it and have it memorized in my brain. It goes something like this:
    “If you want to be happy, begin where you are, don’t wait for some rapture that’s future or far, begin to be joyous, begin to be glad, and soon you’ll forget, that you ever were sad.” Thanks for the reminders on happiness. Kind of tough to think of these things when having difficulties, but always nice to hear these things to be able to summon them up when we “really” need them. Sincerely, Connie

    • Thank you Connie, for liking the happiness quotes and also sharing that lovely verse. I really like it. πŸ™‚ I agree it’s a bit tougher to think of these things when we’re having difficulties. But, as you said we can summon them up when we really need them! It was so nice to see you here Connie, we missed you…Hope all is well with you. Hugs, Gabby πŸ™‚
