Happiness is not in our circumstances but in ourselves. It is not something we see, like a rainbow, or feel, like the heat of a fire. Happiness is something we are.
John B. Sheerin

George Matthew Adams
Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
May we never let the things we can’t have, or don’t have, or shouldn’t have, spoil our enjoyment of the things we do have and can have. As we value our happiness let us not forget it, for one of the greatest lessons in life is learning to be happy without the things we cannot or should not have.
Richard L. Evans
Happiness is the only good. The time to be happy is now. The place to be happy is here. The way to be happy is to make others so.

Prosperity is living easily and happily in the real world, whether you have money or not.
It is not the place, nor the condition, but the mind alone that can make anyone happy or miserable.
