The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved; loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.

My family didn’t have a lot of money, and I’m grateful for that. Money is the longest route to happiness.

Real happiness is not of temporary enjoyment, but is so interwoven with the future that it blesses for ever.

Optimism is a happiness magnet. If you stay positive, good things and good people will be drawn to you.

Be happy with what you have and are, be generous with both, and you won’t have to hunt for happiness.

Happiness is dangerous. If you’re happy, you’re content, and if you’re content, you can become complacent.

Be crazy. Be stupid. Be silly. Be weird. Be whatever. Because life is too short to be anything but happy.

Be happy, be yourself, and if others don’t like it, let them be. Your happiness is a choice. Life isn’t about pleasing everybody, so do you.
