What is happiness?--Few quotes!

I always wonder what is happiness? --Because there are times, when you are happy without any reason,
-may be when you listen a word of praise,
-when you are with your sincere friend and sharing your secret with him/her,
-when someone trusts you and shares his/her secret with you,
-you get unexpected good news, and there are times when you get everything around which could please you but you are still unhappy,

and there are many conditions which may vary as to individual's personality. But everyone would agree that when you look around for getting happiness, sometimes time doesn't favour you. And still trying to get happiness is a dream.

But what is happiness?---
Here are some quotes, or sayings of famous people. May be like me, you would get your answer!

* Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go”
