If someone bases his happiness or unhappiness on major events like   a great new job, huge amounts of money, a flawlessly happy marriage or a trip to Paris, that person isn't going to be happy much of the time. If, on the other hand, happiness depends on a good breakfast, flowers in the yard, a drink or a nap, then we are more likely to live with quite a bit of happiness.
~Andy Rooney

[true, and I would also add books to his list of random, everyday contentment.]

Yes! I agree with his list and with your addition. Happiness is found in gratitude for the simple things.

Books definitely add to my happiness. I also love white snow on mountains, blue skies and sunshine, yellow daffodils, and the smell of lilacs. Great quote!
