Happiness is not something you can buy, ask for or borrow. If you keep yourself happy, you will surely appear healthy, handsome and youthful. A happy person is considered the richest person in the whole world. Every one likes him because happiness is gods gift. So be happy with whatever you got or are getting as coming from God.”
