Every day we have plenty of opportunities to get angry, stressed or offended. But what you're doing when you indulge these negative emotions is giving something outside yourself power over your happiness. You can choose to not let little things upset you.
The best way to pay for a lovely moment is to enjoy it.
We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain... To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices - today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.
True happiness is... to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future.
You take away all the other luxuries in life, and if you can make someone smile and laugh, you have given the most special gift: happiness.
The word 'happiness' would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.
Happiness is the absence of the striving for happiness.
Happiness can exist only in acceptance.
Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.
