Quotable Sunday

That Cool Chick Toni from A Daily Dose of Toni started this great weekly ritual of posting Favorite Quotes – the quotes that people come up with are very inspiring, so if you haven’t had a chance to check out Quotable Sunday, now’s your chance! πŸ˜‰ This week I have chosen quotes about ‘Happiness’. This subject has come up a lot in random conversations over the past week, so I think it is very appropriate! πŸ˜‰ I sort of went overboard this week, but I really couldn’t leave any of these out:

“Always remember to forget the things that made you sad. But never forget to remember the things that made you happy.” – Anonymous

“Be happy while you’re living, for you’re a long time dead.” – Scottish Proverb

“Don’t miss a rainbow because you’re looking down; look up and see it.” – Anonymous

“Friendship improves happiness and abates misery, by the doubling of our joy and the dividing of our grief.” – Cicero

“God gives nothing to those who keep their arms crossed.” – West African Proverb

“Happiness comes from spiritual wealth, not material wealth. . . Happiness comes from giving, not getting. If we try hard to bring happiness to others, we cannot stop it from coming to us also. To get joy, we must give it, and to keep joy, we must scatter it.” – John Templeton

“Happiness is a path, not a destination.” – Anonymous

“Happiness is as a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but which if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.” – Nathaniel Hawthorne

“Happiness is not having what you want. It’s wanting what you have.” – Anonymous

“If you want happiness for an hour take a nap. If you want happiness for a day go fishing. If you want happiness for a year inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime help someone else.” – Chinese Proverb

“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” – Marcel Proust

“Life would be infinitely happier if we could only be born at the age of eighty and gradually approach eighteen.” – Mark Twain

“Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.” – Abraham Lincoln

“Seven days without laughter makes one weak.” – Mort Walker

“The happiest people don’t always get the best of everything; they just make the best of everything.” – Anonymous

“Those who wish to sing always find a song.” – Swedish proverb

“Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. It might be the only sunshine he sees all day.” – Anonymous

About Stacy (the Random Cool Chick)

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance and I chose to become a SAHM and WAHM - I love every minute of it. We added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension to our family. We have an eclectic mix of pets: dogs, cats, birds and fish. I love to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, I take on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. My favorite, of course, is making my own wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway. I blog about the joys of parenting, family, friends, life, love and anything else that strikes my fancy. I do enjoy doing reviews and giveaways for products I use, believe in and can stand behind.
