Happiness Quotes

“Being happy doesn’t mean that everything is perfect. It means that you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections.”

“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

“People love others not for who they are but for how they make them feel”
Irwin Federman

“Each moment of a happy lover’s hour is worth an age of dull and common life”
Aphra Behn

“The reason people find it so hard to be happy is that they always see the past better than it was, the present worse than it is, and the future less resolved than it will be”
Marcel Pagnol

“If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.”
Albert Einstein

“Don’t rely on someone else for your happiness and self worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can’t love and respect yourself – no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are – completely; the good and the bad – and make changes as YOU see fit – not because you think someone else wants you to be different.”
Stacey Charter

“Happiness is not the absence of problems but the ability to deal with them.”

“Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”

“It isn’t what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about.”
Dale Carnegie

“It was only a sunny smile and little it cost in the giving but like morning light it scattered the night and made the day worth living.”

“There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved.”
George Sand

“Happiness always looks small while you hold it in your hands, but let it go, and you learn at once how big and precious it is.”
Maxim Gork

“To forgive is the highest, most beautiful form of love. In return, you will receive untold peace and happiness.”
Robert Muller

“Happiness is like a kiss…you must share it to enjoy it.”

“To be happy with a man you must understand him a lot and love him a little. To be happy with a woman you must love her a lot and not try to understand her at all.”
Helen Rowland

“The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.”
Albert Ellis

“There is only one cause of unhappiness: the false beliefs you have in your head, beliefs so widespread, so commonly held, that it never occurs to you to question them.”
Anthony de Mello

“There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will.”

“Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you”
Nathaniel Hawthorne

    Make it a habit to tell people thank you.
    To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return.
    Truly appreciate those around you, and you’ll soon find many others around you.
    Truly appreciate life, and you’ll find that you have more of it.
