We had some interesting and insightful responses to our article, Are You Happy?, earlier this week. So today we’re going to talk again about happiness.

Here are a few more of my favorite happiness quotations:

  • Through practices of self-awareness, you will establish an unshakable baseline of happiness through all of life’s ups and downs. ~ Deepak Chopra
  • Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it. ~ Groucho Marx
  • Happiness depends upon ourselves. ~ Aristotle
  • Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
  • Remember this, that very little is needed to make a happy life. ~ Marcus Aurelius
  • It is only possible to live happily ever after on a daily basis. ~ Margaret Bonanno
  • Your happiness is a gift because it literally brings out the best in you. ~ Robert Holden
  • When our communication supports compassionate giving and receiving, happiness replaces violence and grieving. ~ Marshall Rosenberg
  • We all live with the objective of being happy; our lives are all different and yet the same. ~ Anne Frank
  • The summit of happiness is reached when a person is ready to be what he is. ~ Desiderius Erasmus

And here are some more of my favorite happiness quotations from Spirit:

  • Happiness is an “inside job.” You must create it for yourselves. Yet so many of you wait for someone or something outside yourselves to do it for you.
  • A happy life is an “inside job.” You create a happy life from within.
  • It is only when you can truly and deeply love yourselves, and love where you are now, that you will find happiness.
  • The only guarantee of a happy life is reclaiming the power within, and not allowing your happiness to be determined by what or who are “out there.”
  • Once you are happy you will start noticing how beautiful your world is, how beautiful other people are, how beautiful you are.
  • Attachment to the world around you drags you from your happiness, your joy.
  • When you seek happiness within you will empower yourselves to create and live the most joyous, abundant lives you have ever known.
