21 Quotes To Live By If You Want A Happy Life

Some people just know the best thing to say when someone's feeling down and out. They know just how to motivate someone with a few simple words and leave a lasting impact on them afterwards.

Sometimes it can come from a friend or a teacher, or even from the Internet. Everyone wants a happy life, but the road to one can be long and stressful, and we won't always have someone by our side to whisper kind, encouraging words to us, which is why quotes from famous celebrities and speakers can be the moral support we need sometimes.
