Pure and complete sorrow is as impossible as pure and complete joy.
Silence is the perfectest herald of joy I were but little happy, if I could say how much.
There is no beautifier of complexion, or form, or behavior, like the wish to scatter joy and not pain around us.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
He who has not looked on Sorrow will never see Joy.
Grateful souls focus on the happiness and abundance present in their lives and this in turn attracts more abundance and joy towards them.
I wish you all the joy you can wish.
Service which is rendered without joy helps neither the servant nor the served. But all other pleasures and possessions pale into nothingness before service which is rendered in a spirit of joy.
If one lived for ever the joys of life would inevitably in the end lose their savour. As it is, they remain perennially fresh.
Grief can take care of itself, but to get the full value of joy ,you must have somebody to divide it with.
Work is love made visible. And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy.
I slept and I dreamed that life is all joy. I woke and I saw that life is all service. I served and I saw that service is joy.
