20 Best Quotes of All Time for Garantueed Happiness

Happiness is a tricky thing. A few months ago I saw a Youtube video, where people were asked what the purpose of life is. Most of them said that living a happy life is the answer, but happiness can be very different for different people. While some prefer to invest in their careers, others are in search of love, or simply wish to make a family of their own. Regardless of the form, happiness is definitely the magic ingredient that we need in order to live a fulfilling life. Sadly, we have become to stressed, too irritable, too tired and agitated to care about happiness, and we keep postponing it for tomorrow. Somehow, tomorrow never comes, and before we can see it, we have lost many occasions to be happy. More often than not, happiness is about the little things, and about learning to appreciate every day. Let’s see what the experts have to say about it. Here are 20 life quotes about Happiness.
