Happiness Quotes

 ”The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up.  ~Mark Twain


Most people would rather be certain they're miserable, than risk being happy.  ~Robert Anthony

Nobody really cares if you're miserable, so you might as well be happy.  ~Cynthia Nelms

Happiness often sneaks in through a door you didn't know you left open.  ~John Barrymore


People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness.  Just because they're not on your road doesn't mean they've gotten lost.  ~H. Jackson Browne

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
