Quotable Sunday - #7



Toni at A Daily Dose of Toni hosts Quotable Sunday each Sunday.

I decided to do some quotes today on happiness, since I sometimes have to work at staying happy :)



Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.

-Abraham Lincoln


Laughing is the sensation of feeling good all over and showing it principally in one spot.

-Josh Billings


Happiness is not a goal; it is a by-product.

-Eleanor Roosevelt


If there were in the world today any large number of people who desired their own happiness more than they desired the unhappiness of others, we could have paradise in a few years.

-Bertrand Russell


Most people would rather be certain they're miserable, than risk being happy.

-Robert Anthony

I love the Abraham Lincoln quote. It's so true. Focus on things that bring you joy. They will bring a smile to face and make you feel good.

Hope you enjoy your day.

Lots of truth to Robert Anthony's quote, "Most people would rather be certain they're miserable, than risk being happy".

Abraham Lincoln is so right. We can often change our mood just by wanting to be happy and wanting to smile.
