I decided to post some happy quotes for people who are trying to find some happiness and inspiration in their lives. Sometimes we get so immersed with following our dreams thinking that when we finally achieve it we will be happy. Later on we realized we have long reached our goals but we are still miserable and trying to achieve more goals to find that elusive happiness. Contrary to what we’re thinking happiness is a state of mind and if we want to be happy then we have to think happy.
Here are some happy quotes for all of you.
“Happiness is a journey, not a destination; happiness is to be found along the way not at the end of the road, for then the journey is over and it’s too late. The time for happiness is today not tomorrow.” ~ Quoted by Paul H Dunn
Happiness is always a by-product. It is probably a matter of temperament, and for anything I know it may be glandular. But it is not something that can be demanded from life, and if you are not happy you had better stop worrying about it and see what treasures you can pluck from your own brand of unhappiness. ~Robertson Davies
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. ~ Carl Jung
Man is fond of counting his troubles, but he does not count his joys. If he counted them up as he ought to, he would see that every lot has enough happiness provided for it. ~ Fyodor Dostoevsky
Being happy doesn’t mean that everything is perfect. It means that you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections.
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
Happiness is not having what you want. It is wanting what you have. ~ Unknown
They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world. Someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for. ~ Tom Bodett
Procrastination is one of the most common and deadliest of diseases and its toll on success and happiness is heavy. ~ Wayne Dyer
A happy man is too satisfied with the present to dwell too much on the future. ~ Albert Einstein
Take care of yourself. Good health is everyone’s major source of wealth. Without it, happiness is almost impossible. ~ Unknown
“Happiness is a conscious choice, not an automatic response.” ~ Mildred Barthel
The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance; the wise grows it under his feet. ~James Openheim
Often people attempt to live their lives backwards; they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want, so they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do, in order to have what you want. ~Margaret Young
Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be. ~ Abraham Lincoln
