What sunshine is to flowers, smiles ar to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but, scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.

Joseph Addison

Now and then it's good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.

The second one really pins it down, the serious and earnest pursuit, never catching happiness, when it's right there.

I like both quotes.
Re: the first one. DH and went for a walk in a local park this afternoon. The sun was shining, families were having picnics, people walking their dogs, fruitless cherry trees were starting to bud and we smiled at every one we met and they returned our smiles. It was a happy "walk".
The second quote fits my mood, just be happy.
