 “Happiness is a choice. You can choose to be happy. There’s going to be stress in life, but it’s your choice whether you let it affect you or not.”

― Valerie Bertinelli

Happiness

“One of the deep secrets of life is that all that is really worth doing is what we do for others.”
 
Lewis Carroll

Happiness

“The greatest disease in the West today is not TB or leprosy; it is being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for. We can cure physical diseases with medicine, but the only cure for loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love. There are many in the world who are dying for a piece of bread but there are many more dying for a little love. The poverty in the West is a different kind of poverty — it is not only a poverty of loneliness but also of spirituality. There’s a hunger for love, as there is a hunger for God.”

 

Mother Teresa

Happiness

“True happiness is to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future, not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is sufficient, for he that is so wants nothing. The greatest blessings of mankind are within us and within our reach. A wise man is content with his lot, whatever it may be, without wishing for what he has not.”

 

Seneca

Happiness

“If you feel anxiety or depression, you are not in the present. You are either anxiously projecting the future or depressed and stuck in the past. The only thing you have any control over is the present moment; simple breathing exercises can make us calm and present instantly.”

 

Tobe Hanson, The Four Seasons Way of Life:: Ancient Wisdom for Healing and Personal Growth

Happiness

“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

Happiness

“For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.”

 

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Happiness

“It is difficult to live in and enjoy the moment when you are thinking about the past or worrying about the future. You cannot change your past, but you can ruin the present by worrying about your future. Learn from the past, plan for the future. The more you live in and enjoy the present moment, the happier you will be.”
Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart
