Remember: joy is not a sin; sacrifice is not a virtue.
Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.
I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.
All this joy. All this sorrow. All this promise. All this pain. Such is life. Such is being. Such is spirit. Such is love.
All around you, people will be tiptoeing through life, just to arrive at death safely. But dear children, do not tiptoe. Run, hop, skip, or dance, just don’t tiptoe.
Joy is the infallible sign of the presence of God.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Stay close to those who sing, tell stories, and enjoy life, and whose eyes sparkle with happiness. Because happiness is contagious and will always manage to find a solution, whereas logic can find only an explanation for the mistake made.
Happiness is not another place, but this place. Not for another hour, but for this hour.
Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.
Thich Nhat Hanh
To get the full value of joy you must have someone to divide it with.
