My husband is off again on a business trip and I’m left to celebrate Valentine’s Day with my daughter. I think I’ll take her on a “date” to Texas De Brazil and wash my tears away with steak.

Despite the fantasies of gorging on perfectly-cooked, select cuts of premium beef, this whole not-having-my-husband-around-on-Valentine’s Day has me a little depressed. This is our first Valentine’s Day apart since we met 11 years ago! In fact, the first time I kissed my husband was on Valentine’s Day in 2001, so the holiday has always had a little extra special meaning to me.

I decided to be happy, but I need a little help. So I went to We Heart It, where there is never a short supply of inspiration by way of quotes about happiness .

My Favorite Quotes About Happiness

This is actually a famously misquoted quote by Audrey Hepburn. I don’t care if it’s misquoted, it makes sense and this is a message I love sending to girls – young and old! Can you think of anything more suitable for quotes about happiness than encouraging positive self esteem in women?

I love my philosophers. Aristotle is one of my favorites, and these kinds of quotes about happiness are exactly why he has always appealed to me so much!

I especially love this next one because it’s true!

No matter who you are, what you are doing, where you are – you are always someone’s reason to smile! The trick is just to figure out who that someone is so that you can continue to do it!

Emerson was a smart man, wasn’t he? I have read a few of his writings but never managed to read an entire essay – yet. One of these days, I must get around to it!
