Welcome to Happy Quotes

What’s the definition of a happy quote?

What does that phrase mean to you?

Is it any quotation that must have the words happy or happiness in it? Is that the only thing you were looking for when you searched for happy quotes?

Or are you looking for any quotation that makes you smile?

You’ll find many quotes on this site that don’t have those particular words in them but to me they’re still happy quotes.

My take on what makes any quotation a happy quote has more to do with power of words themselves. I think any quote that makes you stop to think and consider it in the context of your own life is a happy quote.

If any set of words, spoken, written or even sung, has the effect of making you say, yeah, that’s how I feel about this, then you are describing what a happy quote means to you.

“Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself, I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.

I can choose which it shall be.

Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.

I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it”

Groucho Marx.

Our language is potent force acting upon us whether we are always conscious of it or not and words can be destructive as well as motivational.

I don’t think the source or the arrangement of the words matter that much. If any phrase has meaning for you, and if you can take something positive from them, does it matter if the spelling and grammar aren’t quite right?

Whether the phrase is taken from the ancients or a modern popular song seems irrelevant to me – they can be any set of words that makes you say – yep, that sums up how I feel right now.

Shakespeare statueI believe that any quotation that is so well considered by the author that it touches on a common need in us all makes it a power for good that you can to help you strive to be happier and more successful in your daily life.

Each of us in our own little should make some effort to harness that power to widen our perspective on life and reach out to others.

Take responsibility for your own actions and thoughts and be a better citizen of your country and the world.
