You deserve a happy life: 100 inspiring quotes

  Who holds the key to your happiness? Where is the fate of your happiness resting? He doesn't make me happy. She doesn't make me happy. I'm just not happy. What is it that makes you happy? Does having money make you happy? Do your friends make you happy? Do your children make you happy? Does your job make you happy? Does your spouse make you happy?

It is  a unit of pronunciation having one vowel sound, with or without surrounding consonants, forming the whole or a part of a word; for example, there are two syllables in  water  (wa-ter) and three in  inferno (in-fer-no).
