It’s You That Makes Me Happy


To love is to place our happiness in the happiness of another.

by Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibnitz



I could not be what I am, if I did not take such serene happiness from my union with you.

You are my spring of content; and so long as I have you, and you too are happy, nothing but good and power can come to me…my God bless and keep you!

by Woodrow Wilson

I sit here bored

I don’t feel like talking to the people here.

I don’t feel like looking at this place anymore.

I sit here lonely realizing that it’s not people or places that makes me happy

It’s you

by Susan Polis Schutz




I wish you all the good and charm that life can offer.

Think of me kindly, and…rest assured that no one

would more rejoice to hear of your happiness.

Love, and love alone, is capable of giving thee a happier life.

by Ludwig van Beethoven
