Much certainty of the happiness and purity of our lives depends on our making a wise choice of our companions and friends.
by John Lubbock
How often do you see your friends?
Do you feel they have a strong influence to your life?
What do you give them in return as a friend or has it ever crossed your mind you have something to give?
Fern Cotton’s book Happiness gives us much insight on how to find your joyful moment in your daily life, through friends, through companions. Have a read and let me know what do you think?
I have also read Ruby Wax’s A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled , in her book, she explains how to overcome her depression by practising mindfulness, it’s also interesting to read her real life story through her witty lines!
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
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
