Happiness has to be cultivated constantly. Just earning money and spending on materialistic life is not ultimate happiness. Can you explain how you derive your happiness?

I find happiness, when i see other around happy and content, whether i know them or not doesn't matter... helping others in needs, if i'm able to do so with the grace of almighty... coz the common policy followed by me is Love everyone unconditionally... and don't expect anything in return...

Too many people think that "Happily Ever After" means that the roof will never leak...when in fact, what it really means is that WHEN the roof inevitably leaks...you CHOOSE to hear the music the water drops make as the water hits the bucket

Of course,money cannot buy happiness.A man with ten million is not happier than the man with a cent.You create happiness for urself and be contented with what u have.

Happiness does not lie only when someone loves or being loved. There are momemnts of joy and happiness when you meet your parents and love them, do certain things for them, because all along their married life, they have done so many things for you, happiness is when you see your brother, he might have been a great supporter, friend philosopher and guide throughout your life, like this... happiness has no limitations.
