Quote of the Day
We choose our joys and sorrows long before we experience them.
It is in the compelling zest of high adventure and of victory, and in creative action, that man finds his supreme joys.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
I adore art... when I am alone with my notes, my heart pounds and the tears stream from my eyes, and my emotion and my joys are too much to bear.
There are many things in your heart you can never tell to another person. They are you, your private joys and sorrows, and you can never tell them. You cheapen yourself, the inside of yourself, when you tell them.
Tranquil pleasures last the longest; we are not fitted to bear the burden of great joys.
Christian Nestell Bovee
Uncertainty and expectation are the joys of life. Security is an insipid thing.
Man cannot live without joy; therefore when he is deprived of true spiritual joys it is necessary that he become addicted to carnal pleasures.

Real music is not for wealth, not for honours or even the joys of the mind... but as a path for realisation and salvation.
Ali Akbar Khan
Oh, how miserable it is to have no one to share your sorrows and joys, and, when your heart is heavy, to have no soul to whom you can pour out your woes.
My life is about ups and downs, great joys and great losses.
Man only likes to count his troubles, but he does not count his joys.
Only solitary men know the full joys of frienship. Others have their family; but to a solitary and an exile, his friends are everything.
Your joys and sorrows. You can never tell them. You cheapen the inside of yourself if you do tell them.
Keep both heart and hand in your own possession, till you see good reason to part with them; and if such an occasion should never present itself, comfort your mind with this reflection: that, though in single life your joys may not be very many, your sorrows, at least, will not be more than you can bear.

My husband is my part of my greatest joys, so it doesn't feel like work or like I'm balancing anything. My husband and my kids absolutely come first, so work is just something where I figure out where it will fit.
Monica Denise Brown
Grief knits two hearts in closer bonds than happiness ever can; and common sufferings are far stronger links than common joys.
Alphonse de Lamartine
