Happiness

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on happiness

Join with those who sing songs, tell stories, enjoy life … because happiness is contagious. Join those who walk with their heads high even when they have tears in their eyes. Avoid those who … have never shed a tear

A Quote by Andriana Kelisakieva on smile, cure, heart, warmth, satisfaction, happiness, life, and worth

 A single smile is a cure for anything. It penetrates the human heart causing it to beat faster. A single smile means warmth, satisfaction, happiness, and most of all it means life. People smiling know and understand they have something worth living for.

A Quote by Agnes Martin on feelings, art, music, happiness, abstract, and expression

It’s not about facts, it’s about feelings. It’s about remembering feelings and happiness.  A definition of art is that it makes concrete our most subtle emotions. I think the highest form of art is music. It’s the most abstract of all art expression.

A Quote by Agnes Martin on happiness

What we really want to do is serve happiness. We want everyone to be happy, never unhappy even for a moment. We want the animals to be happy. The happiness of every living thing is what we want.

A Quote by Brenda Ueland on writing, creativity, joy, happiness, and art

I learned that you should feel when writing, not like Lord Byron on a mountain top, but like child stringing beads in kindergarten, - happy, absorbed and quietly putting one bead on after another.

A Quote by Jeanette Winterson on happy, happiness, adult, child, and passion

I was happy but happy is an adult word. You don't have to ask a child about happy, you see it. They are or they are not. Adults talk about being happy because largely they are not. Talking about it is the same as trying to catch the wind. Much easier to let it blow all over you. This is where I disagree with the philosophers. They talk about passionate things but there is no passion in them. Never talk happiness with a philosopher.
