Being Happy is the best thing there is in life! Because when you’re happy is meaning things are going good in life. For me personal it works to read a happy quote so now and then, to stay in balance . Here are some of my most favorite happy and cute quotes in my collection.
Happiness, whether consisting in pleasure or virtue, or both, is more often found with those who are highly cultivated in their minds and in their character, and have only a moderate share of external goods, than among those who possess external goods to a useless extent but are deficient in higher qualities.
~Aristotle in Politics (happiness quotes)
I shall take the heart… for brains do not make one happy, and happiness is the best thing in the world.

In all this world there is nothing so beautiful as a happy child.
~L. Frank Baum, in lines for Santa Claus in The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus (1902) (happiness quotes)

Happiness in this world, when it comes, comes incidentally.Make it the object of pursuit, and it leads us a wild-goose chase, and is never attained. Follow some other object, and very possibly we may find that we have caught happiness without dreaming of it.
~Nathaniel Hawthorne in The American Notebooks (1851) (happiness quotes)
We hold these truths to be sacred and undeniable; that all men are created equal and independent, that from that equal creation they derive rights inherent and inalienable, among which are the preservation of life, and liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
~Thomas Jefferson early draft for the Declaration of Independence (June 1776) (happiness quotes)
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with inherent and inalienable rights; that among these, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; that to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.
~Thomas Jefferson’s final draft for the Declaration of Independence (July 1776) (happiness quotes)
The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only legitimate object of good government.
~Thomas Jefferson Letter “to the Republican Citizens of Washington County, Maryland” (31 March 1809) (happiness quotes)
How simple and frugal a thing is happiness: a glass of wine, a roast chestnut, a wretched little brazier, the sound of the sea. … All that is required to feel that here and now is happiness is a simple, frugal heart.
~Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek (1946) (happiness quotes)
Most people measure their happiness in terms of physical pleasure and material possession. Could they win some visible goal which they have set on the horizon, how happy they could be! Lacking this gift or that circumstance, they would be miserable. If happiness is to be so measured, I who cannot hear or see have every reason to sit in a corner with folded hands and weep. If I am happy in spite of my deprivations, if my happiness is so deep that it is a faith, so thoughtful that it becomes a philosophy of life, — if, in short, I am an optimist, my testimony to the creed of optimism is worth hearing.
~Helen Keller in Optimism (1903) (happiness quotes)
A happy life consists not in the absence, but in the mastery of hardships.
~Helen Keller The Simplest Way to be Happy (1933) (happiness quotes)
