    Happines

    Hi guys,

    Please check.

    1)Is it a correct sentence "Things that make you hapiest"? I think it should be "Happy".

    2) "Happines dwell within you, me or us". Can we also say within "Yourself, myself or ourselves"?

    Re: Happines

    1. Both sentences can be correct. "Happiness" is misspelled.

    2. "Happiness" is misspelled again and needs to be followed by "dwells".

    <<<Can we also say within "Yourself, myself or ourselves"?>>>

    No.

    "I did it in a hasty manner" or "I did it in haste" or "I did it hastily".

    That's just not good enough, tufguy, and extremely annoying. To quote emsr2d2 in respose to another careless poster, 'If you had taken the time to write your post properly in the first place and had proofread your own post, you might have spotted those errors and corrected them yourself. If you're not prepared to take the time to be careful, why should we?'
