6.

Whenever we are appreciative, we are filled with a sense of well-being and swept up by the feeling of joy. – M.J. Ryan

As we value our happiness let us not forget it, for one of the greatest lessons in life is learning to be happy without the things we cannot or should not have. – Richard L. Evans

10.

I don’t like it when people on the street say smile or cheer up. It’s a real cheap line. I’m feeling good. I’m feeling real grateful for everything. It’s a solid time in my life. When people say I look sad, they’re wrong. – Nicolas Cage
