Here is how you could go about defining happiness:
Here is a kicker:
Money makes you most happy if you don’t spend it on yourself.
Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.
What everyone wants from life is continuous and genuine happiness.
Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.
Happiness is not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.
There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved.
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.
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
