Mentioned quotes will definitely change your negative, glass half-empty point of view to glass half-full, provided you practice positivity and swap all your negative thoughts with positive ones.
Happiness is nothing but a state of mind. It is what all of us strive for. What makes you happy? Does looking at nature, smiling babies, laughing out loud, playing with your pet, shopping for shoes or clothes, volunteering, gardening, dancing, or singing make you happy? Then put these things into perspective and pursue happiness.
Stop complaining, relying on others for your happiness, or comparing yourself with others, and for a change, enjoy what you have and value happiness. Similarly, don't dwell in the past or future, but have a positive mindset and live for today. Resolve to let go of all negative thoughts, this won't be easy at first, but the more you try, you get better at it.
