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 reached by another person or persons handing it to us? That’s so not going to happen, that’s just the way it is in real life. 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! 🙂
