100 Happiness Quotes Guaranteed to Keep You Happy Every Day

The slowdown is depressing no doubt. Read over 100 Motivational Happiness Quotes to Help you Fight Depression and keep you happy every day. Don't worry, be happy. I've chosen each one of these with care to delight. Don't forget to bookmark.

Happiness is actually a state of mind. Mere purchase of material comforts is like trying to fill a huge void. The self, things that please our five sense are all fine. But they do not lead to inner peace or happiness.

Real happiness comes with enjoying nature, being happy with what we have (even as we pursue what we want), going beyond self, family and helping society.

Positive happiness comes from sharing things with others (I mean in whatever little way you can), giving is joy and more peace results than when we receive.

The belief, hope we have leads us to be happy. With ourselves, our family, our surroundings and our community.

Give. Share. Live Happily. Go on read my collection of over 100 Happiness Quotes, Sayings, Proverbs and Quotations.
