Day #117:Happiness Quotes

Wednesdays are my ‘lazy’ days as one of my friends recently told me. It’s the day of the week I dedicate to sharing the most interesting quotes I  come across on the internet. Today I want to share the most inspiring quotes on happiness I have read recently. Enjoy.

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

2. “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
 
3. “People love others not for who they are but for how they make them feel”- Irwin Federman
 
 4.“Each moment of a happy lover’s hour is worth an age of dull and common life”- Aphra Behn
 
5.“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
 
6.“If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.”-Albert Einstein
 
7.“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

 

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

15. “Happiness is like a kiss…you must share it to enjoy it.”- Author Unknown
 
16“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
 
17.“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
 

18.“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
