The pain of parting is nothing to the joy of meeting again.
Children love and want to be loved and they very much prefer the joy of accomplishment to the triumph of hateful failure. Do not mistake a child for his symptom.
I'm youth, I'm joy, I'm a little bird that has broken out of the egg.
James M. Barrie
Things never go the way you expect them to. That's both the joy and frustration in life. I'm finding as I get older that I don't mind, though. It's the surprises that tickle me the most, the things you don't see coming.
You all know that I have been sustained throughout my life by three saving graces - my family, my friends, and a faith in the power of resilience and hope. These graces have carried me through difficult times and they have brought more joy to the good times than I ever could have imagined.
It's always such a joy that you wake up in the morning and there's work to do.
Joy's smile is much closer to tears than laughter.
People see me laughing and telling jokes, but they had no idea after the show was over, I had no joy in my life, in my heart.
Beauty is the only thing that time cannot harm. Philosophies fall away like sand, creeds follow one another, but what is beautiful is a joy for all seasons, a possession for all eternity.
When you're in the day-to-day grind, it just seems like it's another step along the way. But I find joy in the actual process, the journey, the work. It's not the end. It's not the end event.
Cal Ripken, Jr.
Every breath we take, every step we make, can be filled with peace, joy and serenity.
Thich Nhat Hanh
Beauty is about perception, not about make-up. I think the beginning of all beauty is knowing and liking oneself. You can't put on make-up, or dress yourself, or do you hair with any sort of fun or joy if you're doing it from a position of correction.
Joy comes from places you least expect it. It's usually the simple things, like watching my son play basketball or going through Central Park when the blossoms are blooming.
There is that awful moment when you realize that you're falling in love. That should be the most joyful moment, and actually it's not. It's always a moment that's full of fear because you know, as night follows day, the joy is going to rapidly be followed by some pain or other. All the angst of a relationship.
While the laughter of joy is in full harmony with our deeper life, the laughter of amusement should be kept apart from it. The danger is too great of thus learning to look at solemn things in a spirit of mockery, and to seek in them opportunities for exercising wit.
Everything human is pathetic. The secret source of humor itself is not joy but sorrow. There is no humor in heaven.
Fearlessness is not only possible, it is the ultimate joy. When you touch nonfear, you are free.
Thich Nhat Hanh
I have drunken deep of joy, And I will taste no other wine tonight.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
At present, I am mainly observing the physical motion of mountains, water, trees and flowers. One is everywhere reminded of similar movements in the human body, of similar impulses of joy and suffering in plants.
Only those who have learned the power of sincere and selfless contribution experience life's deepest joy: true fulfillment.
When you hear the word 'disabled,' people immediately think about people who can't walk or talk or do everything that people take for granted. Now, I take nothing for granted. But I find the real disability is people who can't find joy in life and are bitter.
Who will tell whether one happy moment of love or the joy of breathing or walking on a bright morning and smelling the fresh air, is not worth all the suffering and effort which life implies.
A garden must combine the poetic and he mysterious with a feeling of serenity and joy.
There is something terribly morbid in the modern sympathy with pain. One should sympathise with the colour, the beauty, the joy of life. The less said about life's sores the better.
Christianity is not about religion. It's about faith, about being held, about being forgiven. It's about finding joy and finding home.
C. S. Lewis
