Joy Quotes and Proverbs
Warm weather fosters growth: cold weather destroys it. Thus a man with an unsympathetic temperament has a scant joy: but a man with a warm and friendly heart overflowing blessings, and his beneficence will extend to posterity.
Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give.
David McArthur and Bruce McArthur, The Intelligent Heart
You deserve the fun, the joy, the freedom, and the pure goodness that flows through the experience of love that indwells you… The choice is yours.
Find Your Joy by Following Your Heart, by Deborah Rozman, from Teaching and Joy (Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development)
Joy, love, are and appreciation are powerful motivators. They are all feelings that humans experience around the heart. Joy is a feeling of pleasure or delight that arises from the heart. Positive feelings are what make life worth living.
George Bernard Shaw
This is the true joy of life, the being used up for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clot of ailments and grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the community, and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it what I can. .
Thich Nhat Hanh
Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.
I trust all joy.
