“Hello, sun in my face. Hello you who made the morning and spread it over the fields…Watch, now, how I start the day in happiness, in kindness.” — Mary Oliver

And what is life? A crazy quilt; Sorrow and joy, and grace and guilt, With here and there a square of blue For some old happiness we knew; And so the hand of time will take The fragments of our lives and make, Out of life’s remnants, as they fall, A thing of beauty, after all. (Excerpt from “A Crazy Quilt” by Douglas Malloch)

“Happiness is not a state to arrive at, but a manner of traveling.” – Margaret Lee Runbeck, creative writer

The moments of happiness we enjoy take us by surprise. It is not that we seize them, but that they seize us. – Ashley Montagu

There are short-cuts to happiness, and dancing is one of them. – Vicki Baum
