Joy

Occasionally in life there are those moments of unutterable fulfillment which cannot be completely explained by those symbols called words. Their meanings can only be articulated by the inaudible language of the heart.

Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968) American black leader.

'Tis so much joy! 'Tis so much joy! If I should fail, what poverty! And yet, as poor as I Have ventured all upon a throw; Have gained! Yes! Hesitated so this side the victory!

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.

Oh the wild joys of living! The leaping from rock to rock ... the cool silver shock of the plunge in a pool's living waters.

Robert Browning (1812 -1889) British poet.

With coarse rice to eat, with water to drink, and my bent arm for a pillow -- I have still joy in the midst of all these things.

Confucius (BC 551-BC 479) Chinese philosopher.

Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls. A joyful heart is the inevitable result of a heart burning with love

Mother Teresa (1910-1997) Albanian-born missionary.

One joy scatters a hundred grieves.

Chinese proverb

The end of life is life. Life is action, the use of one's powers. And to use them to their height is our joy of duty.
