When you look at your life the greatest happinesses are family happinesses.
One cannot divine nor forecast the conditions that will make happiness; one only stumbles upon them by chance, in a lucky hour, at the world's end somewhere, and hold fast to the days, as to fortune or fame.
When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.
True love is when you value your lover's happiness more than yours, and make their happiness your first priority.
May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, enough hope to make you happy.
True happiness is always a moment. More could not be endured by man, who often in an entire life doesn't have the luck to find even that one moment, or even get close to it.
Never sacrifice these three things: your family, your heart or your dignity.
I am happier when I love than when I am loved. I adore my husband, my son, my grandchildren, my mother, my dog, and frankly I don't know if they even like me. But who cares? Loving them is my joy.
Remember, you have the capacity to choose. Choose life. Choose love. Choose health. Choose happiness.
The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved; loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.
