I will start off with Five things Friday, more specifically five things that made me happy today. Feel free to share your five things below.

1) Getting up early for work this morning, it was nice to have a little extra time.

2) Coffee-drank almost black

3) The kindness of friends and strangers. I love it when people lift each other up.

4) Finding a summer shirt in my closet I haven’t worn since last year.

5) Air conditioning.

 

Now for quotes on happiness:

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

The secret of happiness is not in doing what one likes, but in liking what one does.
 

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 that has been opened for us.
 

Happiness is the art of never holding in your mind the memory of any unpleasant thing that has passed.

To be happy, we must not be too concerned with others.

 

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.
Happy people plan actions, they don’t plan results.
 

If men would consider not so much wherein they differ, as wherein they agree, there would be far less of uncharitableness and angry feeling in the world.

 

Happiness is acceptance.

 

Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
