It is ingrained in everybody’s DNA the need to search for life’s ultimate goal — happiness. Everything that we do gravitates towards the fulfillment of our dreams that leads to happiness. What does it really mean to be truly happy? Some people equate being happy as being at peace or a feeling of serenity; perhaps a life without worries or a life with meaning and worth. The dictionary defines it as a sense of well-being, joy, or contentment. Even the pursuit of happiness is mentioned in the Declaration of Independence as a fundamental right to freely pursue our joy in our life. But the definition that matters to us is whatever we define it to be. We have collected a few quotes that tell us how these people define happiness in their minds and why it is important to find it for our own. Please feel free to enjoy and share.
