Paperback, 188 pages

Book Summary

We often think of celebrations as centering around special occasions, like Birthdays, Christmas, or other holidays. But there is no need to wait for those times. Everyday is a cause for celebration. The very fact that you are alive, the wondrous world around you, and the special people in your life are all reasons to rejoice.

That's what this book is all about. Over 500 suggestions for living life to the fullest. A compendium of "glass half full" common sense, these witty and wise words from both the rich and famous, as well as the not-so-rich and the not-so-famous, will, I hope, inspire you to make every day a special day.

Pianist Artur Rubinstein once said, "To be alive, it's all a miracle." Yes indeed, it is all a miracle, and all a cause for celebration.


Always Look on the Bright Side is the essence of Allen Klein's thinking. As I read through it I was reminded of how powerful words can be. The quotations in this book will stir your emotions and spark your imagination. Some will take you back to precious moments from days gone by. While others will cause you to reminisce and appreciate how important the simple things in life are.

The true beauty of this book however, is that you can pick it up any time, turn to any page and read any quote and you will feel something resonate within you. This book is a gem in that it reminds you that every day is a reason to rejoice and to be thankful, regardless of your circumstances. It's an emotional roller coaster that embraces life to the fullest.

Here's the bottom line. I love this book simply because it has the power to make me feel good about myself and about life. I smiled, I laughed and at times I felt a tear or two roll down my cheek at the truth and wisdom that it contains. I believe you will do the same."
—Steve Rizzo, author of Get Your Shift Together



The more you praise and celebrate your life,
the more there is in life to celebrate.
Oprah Winfrey

Have interesting failures.... If you need to have a personal crisis have it now. Don't wait until midlife, when it will take longer to resolve.... Don't pity yourselves. Lighten up. Seek people with a sense of humor. Avoid humorless people—and do not marry one, for God's sake.
Garrison Keillor

Each person on this planet is inherently, intrinsically capable of attaining “dizzying heights” of happiness and fulfillment.
Wayne Dyer

If my heart can become pure and simple like that of a child, I think there probably can be no greater happiness than this.
Kitaro Nishida 

I have a simple philosophy. Fill what’s empty. Empty what’s full. And scratch where it itches.
