We stop playing because we grow oldBe  HappyWe grow old because we stop playing

The purpose of our lives is to be happy.  Take joy in the journey.  Happiness is found along the way, not at the end of the road.  There is no path to happiness; happiness is the path.  Happiness is a journey not a destination; is a direction not a place.  Allow yourself to enjoy each happy moment in your life.  Being happy never goes out of style.

It is very simple to be happy, but it is very difficult to be simple.  Happiness is not by chance but choice.  You don't find the happy life, you make it.  Happiness is an inside job.  Being happy doesn't depend on any external conditions, not something ready made.  It comes from your own action.  Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action.  Nothing will make you happy untill you choose to be happy.  No person will make you happy unless you decide to be happy.  Your happiness will not come to you, it can only come from you.

Happiness is state of activity, not out there, it's in you.  It is governed by our mental attitude.  Don't assign anyone else that much power over your life.  Life finds its purpose and fulfilment in the expansion of happiness.  Music was invented to confirm human loneliness.  Life is like a piano.  White keys are happy moments and the black ones are sad moments.  Both keys are played together to give us the sweet music called  "life".  Some days we need the music, and some days we need the lyrics.  When you're happy you enjoy the music;  when you're sad you understand the lyrics.  Find what makes your heart sing and create your own

When writing the story of your life.  Don't let anyone else hold the pen.  Don't let the sadness of your past and your fear of the future ruin your happiness.  Live for what today has to offer, not for what yesterday has taken away.  Never expect to find happiness in the same place you lost it.  You cannot protect yourself from sadness without protecting yourself from happiness.  Don't let people rent space in your head.  You are the one that possesses the keys to your being.  No one can drive you crazy unless you give them the keys.  Never put the key to your happiness in somebody else's pocket.  The key to being happy is knowing you have the power to choose what to accept and what to let go.  You carry the passport to your own happiness.  For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.  One joy scatters a hundred griefs.

Happiness is hard to find and easily taken away.  Life is never easy for those who dream.  Happiness is like a butterfly; the more you chase it, the more it will elude you.  We can't go back to yesterday and we can't control tomorrow.  Tomorrow is not promised, today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.  There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done, yesterday and tomorrow.  Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift, that is why they call it "The Present".  Happiness is not something you postpone for the future, it is something you design for the present.  If you want to be happy, do not dwell in the past, do not worry about the future, focus on living fully in the present.

Life does not come with instructions on how to live.  Happiness is not a goal... it's a by-product of a life well-lived.  Trying to be happy by accumulating possessions is like trying to satisfy hunger by taping sandwiches all over your body.  Happy people focus on what they have.  Unhappy people focus on what's missing.  The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything, they just make the most of everything they have.  Happiness is not about getting all you want, it is about enjoying all you have.  If it doesn’t add to your life, it doesn’t belong in your life.  If we concentrate on what we don’t have, we will never, ever have enough.

Happiness is a choice.  Doing what you like is freedom.  Like what you do is happiness.  Don't waste your time in anger, regrets, worries, and grudges.  It's not happiness that brings us gratitude.  It's gratitude that brings us happiness.  Life is too short to be anything but happy.  We only pass through this life once, we don't come back for an encore.

No one is born happy, but all of us are born with the ability to create happiness.  People say money is not the key to happiness, but I have always figured if you have enough money, you can have a key made.  Happiness does not cost you anything.  Don't wait until you are rich to be happy.  Happiness is free.

Happiness is the secret to all beauty.  If you want to be happy, be.
