Perk up your mood and get inspired with ten of my favorite quotes about happiness. We become happier the more we focus on being happy – how it feels, what it looks and sounds like, why we want it, etc. Enjoy!

3. “Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.” Abraham Lincoln

5. “He who would travel happily must travel light.” Antoine de Saint Exupéry, pilot and author

6. “Happiness is not a station you arrive at, but a manner of traveling.” Margaret Lee Runbeck, writer

9. Work joyfully and peacefully, knowing that right thoughts and right efforts will inevitably bring about right results. James Allen

10. “What if you began to expect the best from any situation? Isn’t it possible that you could write new chapters in your life with happy endings? Suspend your disbelief? Take a leap of faith? After all, what have you got to lose but misery and lack?” Sarah Ban Breathnach
