“When you wish someone joy, you wish them peace, love, prosperity,
happiness.. all the good things.”
“The Divine Spirit does not reside in any except the joyful heart”
The deeper that sorrow carves into your being the more joy you can contain.
Is not the cup that holds your wine the very cup that was burned in the potter’s oven?
Participate joyfully in the sorrows of the world.
We cannot cure the world of sorrows, but we can choose to live in joy.
Life is not measured by the breaths you take, but by its breathtaking moments.
Believe me! The secret of reaping the greatest fruitfulness and
the greatest enjoyment from life is to live dangerously!
Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.
Be absolutely determined to enjoy what you do
Fill your life with as many moments and experiences of joy and passion
as you humanly can. Start with one experience and build on it.
For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Grief can take care of itself, but to get the full value of joy
you must have somebody to divide it with.
Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile,
but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.
Thich Nhat Hanh
Joy is prayer – Joy is strength – Joy is love
Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.
I define joy as a sustained sense of well-being and
internal peace – a connection to what matters.
May your walls know joy; May every room hold laughter
and every window open to great possibility.
