Joyful Heart

We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.  - FREDERICK KOENIG

To get the full value of joy, you must have someone to divide it with.  - MARK TWAIN

When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.  - HELEN KELLER

A happiness that is sought for ourselves alone can never be found: for a happiness that is diminished by being shared is not big enough to make us happy.  - THOMAS MERTON

Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.  - RALPH WALDO EMERSON

The really happy person is the one who can enjoy the scenery, even when they have to take a detour.  - SIR JAMES JEANS

Happiness is not a destination: it is a manner of travelling. Happiness is not an end in itself. It is a by-product of working, playing, loving and living.  - HAIM GINOTT
