3.      Remember happiness doesn't depend upon who you are or what you have; it depends solely on what you think.
Dale Carnegie

5.      Happiness is not a goal; it is a by-product.
Eleanor Roosevelt

8.      Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.
Jim Rohn 

Happiness is living fully here and now. Don’t postpone your happiness to a future date. The time may not come and you may not be there. When you are there, most likely you will postpone your happiness to another future date. You will never be happy. 

9.      To get up each morning with the resolve to be happy . . . is to set our own conditions to the events of each day. To do this is to condition circumstances instead of being conditioned by them.
 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Be sure to get up with the right frame of mine.  Be enthusiastic, by joyous and be energetic.

10.   Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness and the word ‘happy’ would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.

Take action; change your life, choose happiness.
