“All animals except man know that the principal business of life is to enjoy it.”

– Samuel Butler

Happiness

So early it’s still almost dark out.
I’m near the window with coffee,
and the usual early morning stuff
that passes for thought.

When I see the boy and his friend
walking up the road
to deliver the newspaper.

They wear caps and sweaters,
and one boy has a bag over his shoulder.
They are so happy
they aren’t saying anything, these boys.

I think if they could, they would take
each other’s arm.
It’s early in the morning,
and they are doing this thing together.

They come on, slowly.
The sky is taking on light,
though the moon still hangs pale over the water.

Such beauty that for a minute
death and ambition, even love,
doesn’t enter into this.

Happiness. It comes on
unexpectedly. And goes beyond, really,
any early morning talk about it. 

― Raymond Carver

“If you’re not happy in life then you need to change, calibrate, readjust…flush your negative energy and fill it with positive energy; How do we do that you might ask? well I would start by making others happy, deseases are not the only thing that spreads easy. We are all connected in some form of unseen energy… think how those around you will impact you and make you feel if they were happy?”

– Al Munoz

“Money can’t buy happiness, but it certainly is a stress reliever.”

– Besa Kosova

“The summit of happiness is reached when a person is ready to be what he is.”

– Desiderius Erasmus

“Surely every one realizes, at some point along the way, that he is capable of living a far better life than the one he has chosen.”

– Henry Miller

“When you find yourself in need of spiritual nourishment, it is in the opportunities to serve others that you will find the abundance you seek.”

– Steve Maraboli

“Create all the happiness you are able to create; remove all the misery you are able to remove. Every day will allow you, —will invite you to add something to the pleasure of others, —or to diminish something of their pains.”

– Jeremy Bentham

“They say all marriages are made in heaven, but so are thunder and lightning.”

– Clint Eastwood

“Are you going to allow the world around you to change while you remain stagnant? Make this the time you throw away old habits that have hindered your happiness and success and finally allow your greatest self to flourish.”

– Steve Maraboli
