An effort made for the happiness of others lifts above ourselves.

Lydia M. Child

But what is happiness except the simple harmony between a man and the life he leads?

Albert Camus

Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.

Dalai Lama

Happiness often sneaks in through a door you didn't know you left open.

All are good, happiness is elusive, happiness is right here, I do lead a happy life, sometimes stubbing my toe on a bump in the road, but that usually happens because I am the one not paying attention

Dawn is breaking, I am facing East and the sky is lightening, sipping my first cup of coffee, culdn't be better.

Thank you, Don~

Love all of them. Most of my life has been happy, I think because I am positive and try to pass it on to others. Nature makes me happy and I tend to see the funny side of things. There are, as Lilo said so aptly, the bumps in the road, but if they were not, we would not know when we have a smooth ride.
Thanks for a week of good quotes, a reward for dropping out for a few days.
