Defining Happiness

What is Happines? What makes you Happy? How do YOU define Happiness?

Here are  some quotations that might make you smile:

I have to tell you something. I cannot help being happy. I’ve struggled against it’s but no good. Apart from an odd five minutes here and there, I have been happy all my life. There is, I am well aware, no virtue whatever in this. It results from a combination of heredity, health, good fortune and shallow intellect.

Arthur Marshall, Taking Liberties, 1977


Happiness is a Warm Puppy

Charles Schultz, title of Peanuts book, 1962


When I was young I used to think that wealth and power would bring me happiness…I was right.

Gahan Wilson, The Weird World of Gahan Wilson,cartoon, 1975


Happiness is to be busy with the unimportant

Gilbert White


It’s pretty hard to tell what does bring happiness; poverty and wealth have both failed

Kin Hubbard
