Happiness quotes for her
My grandmother is in her 90s and she put the following Ralph Waldo Emerson quote in one of my birthday cards one year.
The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
She was born right after the Great Depression so I can understand how her generation might have a different perspective than millennials on happiness.
It does provide some food for thought though. Is the purpose of life to be happy?
If you are convinced, then here are some more quotes.

Positive quotes for happiness
I’ve always found that focusing on the good and staying busy are the keys to happiness for me.
Studies show that having at least 5 close relationships and being active in the community are also happiness boosters.
That makes sense since I’ve found that spending time with family and friends improves my mood greatly.
These things may seem silly but I’ve also found that the following daily habits improve my mood:
- A big, cold glass of iced coffee in the morning
- A few squares of chocolate after a meal
- Knocking a few things off of my to-do list
I also get a happiness boost by:
- Petting my dog
- Going for a 20-minute walk
- Seeing the ocean
I don’t know why but every time I see the ocean, I get a sense of calm rush over me.
My dream is to own a waterfront property one day.
Sometimes it only takes a few minutes to get a little boost.
