3.2.1 Quote Me! Topic: Happiness 😁

The 3.2.1 Quote Me challenges were created by Rory, A Guy Called bloke, check out his blog post here:

321 Quote Me – Happiness

 

Thank you, Beckie, for tagging me. 🙂

Guidelines: 3.2.1 Quote Me!

Thank the Selector

Post 2 quotes for the dedicated Topic of the Day.

Select 3 bloggers to take part in ‘3.2.1 Quote Me!’

 

The Topic is Happiness.

What is happiness? It is a feeling of contentment caused when your mental health is good and you acknowledge that you have acquired or achieved something that makes you happy, or you realise that there is no reason to be unhappy. It is a mental attitude and it can be a choice, however, for someone suffering depression, this is not something that happens quite as well. So, In quoting Aeschylus below, I acknowledge that for some of us, simply choosing to be happy, doesn’t quite work as well.

 

Happiness is a choice that requires effort at times. - Aeschylus

 

“Money or things can’t buy you happiness, they can only provide a level of misery you can live with. “

 

I would also like to share with you a song lyric/poem that I wrote a while ago. It’s called Happiness:

Happiness.

When will I find Happiness?

I try to keep hopeful, but I confess

I have almost given up

Dreaming, hoping of the day

When I will find

Someone to love me, who is kind.

 

Happiness, I admit it, I am in Distress

The time left to me is getting less

Do I still have the chance

Of attracting someone nice?

Am I too Old?

Will I be left out in the cold?

 

When I was young I played the fool

Thought settling down was just uncool

But now I know I wasted time.

Looking back, I’ve passed my prime.

Will I ever find what I am looking for?

Or will I continue living without…..

 

Happiness. When will I find Happiness?

I feel my life is such a shameful mess.

And yet, somehow, I know

There is always tomorrow,

and I will find,

The one for me is, in my mind

and I’ll find happiness.

Secondly is an expression for a situation that is undesirable or unfulfilling but provides enough financial security to make someone unwilling to leave.

 – velvet handcuffs

“The greatest expression of all is to have the freedom of it.”

You can quote me on that.

George Orwell

  1. “In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
    ― George Orwell

Who’s real name was Eric Blair and not George Orwell, way to go at telling the truth, Eric! (Only kidding).

2. “Telling lies, that’s teachable, telling the truth is unimpeachable. People usually lie because they perceive the risk to be less than telling the truth.”

You can quote me on that. 🙂

Wondering what quotes I am going to use…Hmmm.

This one from Mark Twain seems quite good.

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear. - Mark Twain

 

I always considered myself a coward, but then I thought, seeing as I suffer from constant anxiety and pretty much fear everything, the fact that I get up every morning is a pretty big achievement. Maybe, I have courage after all.  – Kristian Fogarty

 

So my three nominees will be:

Teresa, The Haunted Wordsmith

https://thehauntedwordsmith.wordpress.com/2019/02/27/the-tulip-tree/

Fandango
