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

Believe in What Makes You Happy

Believe in what makes you feel good.
Believe in what makes you happy.
Believe in the dreams
you’ve always wanted to come true, and give them every chance to.

Life holds no promises
as to what will come your way.
You must search for your own ideals
and work toward reaching them.
Life makes no guarantees
as to what you’ll have.
It just gives you time to make choices
and to take chances
and to discover whatever secrets
that might come your way.

If you are willing to take
the opportunities you are given
and utilize the abilities you have,
you will constantly fill your life
with special moments
and unforgettable times.

No one knows the mysteries of life
or its ultimate meaning,
but for those who are willing
to believe in their dreams
and in themselves,
life is a precious gift
in which anything is possible.

—— by Dena Dilaconi, The Language of Happiness
