Joy is the most infallible sign of the Presence of God – Teilhard Chardin
Listen to the clues. The next time you feel real joy, stop and think. Pay attention. Because joy is the universe’s way of knocking on your mind’s door. Hello in there. Is anyone home? Can I leave a message? Yes? Good! The message is that you are happy, and that means that you are in touch with your purpose – Steve Chandler
Joy of life seems to me to arise from a sense of being where one belongs of being four-square with the life we have chosen. All the discontented people I know are trying sedulously to be something they are not, to do something they cannot do – David Grayson
When we align our thoughts, emotions, and actions with the highest part of ourselves, we are filled with enthusiasm, purpose, and meaning. We are joyously and intimately engaged with our world. This is the experience of authentic power – Gary Zukav
Joy increases as you give it, and diminishes as you try to keep it for yourself. In giving it, you will accumulate a deposit of joy greater than you ever believed possible – Norman Vincent Peale
Joy is the will which labors, which overcomes obstacles, which knows triumph – William Butler Yeats
