    If you are in good health - you should be supremely happy
    I'm not - but I do me best to be happy, don't like the alternative

    Feeling deep love, whether it's for a person, place or thing.
    I enjoy your questions, Sir Walter. Simple yet profound.

    Buying happiness only leads to dissatisfaction; you buy a ocean going yacht and you want two. Happiness is being satisfied with your lot. Trouble is I am not happy because I do the lottery.

    I have read story after story of people who committed suicide because they lost their fortunes, despite being left with more money than most people can expect to accumulate in a lifetime.

    Happiness for me isn’t based on what’s going on around me, it’s all about what’s going on within me.

    Happiness is a warm hug …… from a puppy...… a kid......a relative...… a friend..... or a lover.

    Happiness is neither a constant state or an unrelenting condition. It is not a thing, and does not consist of the abundance of one's possessions. It consists of moments, great and small. Individually, they seem inconsequential. Assembled together, they can make an impressive collection.

    Happiness is like a butterfly. Pursue it, and it eludes you. Rest quietly and be still, and it may come and rest upon your shoulder...

    Il n'y a pas de vie heureuse, seulement des jours heureux.
