What is the key to happiness? I think it’s whatever you want it to be. You control how you feel and if something makes you feel happy I think you need to focus on that over everything else.

It is amazing what others learn from life. The greatest lessons are the ones you learn the hard way. These quotes are from those hard lessons and should help you understand what will make you happy.

I want to share with you the top 25 quotes that I think will help you create happiness and allow you to free yourself to chase your dreams:
