Quotable Sunday

"If you want happiness for an hour take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day go fishing.
If you want happiness for a year inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime help someone else."

Chinese Proverb

"In seeking happiness for others, you find it for yourself." Anonymous

"I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances."

- Martha Washington

"For every minute you are angry, you lose 60 seconds of happiness."Anonymous

"Whoever is happy will make others happy too. He who has courage and faith will never perish in misery."
-Anne Frank

"Be happy while you're living, for you're a long time dead."
Scottish Proverb

"If I keep a green bough in my heart, the singing bird will come."
Chinese Proverb

"Happiness is like a butterfly.
The more you chase it, the more it eludes you.
But if you turn your attention to other things,
It comes and sits softly on your shoulder."

Henry David Thoreau

"Happiness is like jam. You can't spread even a little without getting some on yourself."

Fantastic theme and lovely quotes. My favourite is: "I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances."
- Martha Washington
Happy Sunday!

Great quotes. I've had a rough week & needed to be reminded that happiness is the better way to spend your time. I loved the quote about loosing a minute of happiness for every minute that you are angry :)

Oh goodness, this is so true. I always chuckle when my kids say "mom how come you aren't hopping mad?" It's so not worth the time or energy.

I like the one about finding happiness for others. Awesome quotes! I wish I remembered half of the memes I see so I can remember to join in!

I love the quotes, but what gave me the warm fuzzies was the cover of that Charlie Brown book...I was given that book when I was young and it sits on my bookshelves somewhere here....
