"Happiness makes up in height for what it lacks in length" -Robert Frost (1874-1963). The quote means that although happiness is short-lived, it makes one feel good. The “heights” in the quote may be used to refer to the high level of joy one gets when they are happy, while the "length" of the quote may mean that happiness does not last forever.
