66 Happy Quotes That Turned Me Into A Positive Person

I gotta say,

I LOVE happy quotes…

I guess 66 is my magic number….

There are some that have been with me for a while, and some I just discovered thanks to some wonderful new friends…

I think quotes are a super powerful way to transform the way we and others think.

My love of quotes started when I was a little girl — I used to memorize and enjoy proverbs so much!

Now I have the same relationship with quotes (don’t worry, proverbs, I am still your fan). Actually some of the “quotes” that you are about to read are proverbs that I truly love.

Hope you find quotes that speak to you on the list…and I am quite sure you will be surprised by what some people said
