Joy quotes
Joy
1.

Constant complaint is the poorest sort of pay for all the comforts we enjoy.

- Franklin, Benjamin
2.

Much learning shows how little mortals know; much wealth, how little wordings enjoy.

- Young, Edward
3.

People are constantly clamoring for the joy of life. As for me, I find the joy of life in the hard and cruel battle of life -- to learn something is a joy to me.

- Strindberg, J. August
4.

Friendship improves happiness, and abates misery, by doubling our joys, and dividing our grief.

- Joseph Addison
5.

This is the best kind of voyeurism, hearing joy from your neighbors.

- Chuck Sigars
6.

It is already possible to imagine a society in which the majority of the population, that is to say, its laborers, will have almost as much leisure as in earlier times was enjoyed by the aristocracy. When one recalls how aristocracies in the past actually behaved, the prospect is not cheerful.

- Auden, W. H.
7.

Joy is free, unrestrained passion

- Stukane, Eileen
8.

When life seems just a dreary grind; and things seem fated to annoy; say something nice to someone else and watch the world light up with joy.

9.

Insurance: An ingenious modern game of chance in which the player is permitted to enjoy the comfortable conviction that he is beating the man who keeps the table.

- Bierce, Ambrose
10.

Love is an expression and assertion of self-esteem, a response to one's own values in the person of another. One gains a profoundly personal, selfish joy from the mere existence of the person one loves. It is one's own personal, selfish happiness that one seeks, earns, and derives from love.

- Rand, Ayn
11.

Cease, every joy, to glimmer on my mind, But leave---oh! leave the light of Hope behind.

- Thomas Campbell
12.

Full nakedness! All my joys are due to thee, as souls unbodied, bodies unclothed must be, to taste whole joys.

- Donne, John
13.

Occasionally in life there are those moments of unutterable fulfillment which cannot be completely explained by those symbols called words. Their meaning can only be articulated by the inaudible language of the heart. Such is the moment I am presently experiencing. I experience this high and joyous moment not for myself alone but for those devotees of nonviolence who have moved so courageously against the ramparts of racial injustice and who in the process have acquired a new estimate of their own human worth. Many of them are young and cultured. Others are middle aged and middle class. The majority are poor and untutored. But they are all united in the quiet conviction that it is better to suffer in dignity than to accept segregation in humiliation. These are the real heroes of the freedom struggle: they are the noble people for whom I accept the Nobel Peace Prize.

- King Jr. Martin Luther
14.

Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate, or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.

- Henry Miller
15.

If the reviewing of books be... an ungentle craft, the making of them is, for the most part, a dishonest one -- and that department of literature which ought to be entrusted to those only who are distinguished for their moral qualities is, not infrequently, in the hands of authors totally devoid of good taste, good feeling, and generous sentiment. The writers of Lives have, in our time, assumed a license not enjoyed by their more scrupulous predecessors -- for they interweave the adventures of the living with the memoirs of the dead; and, pretending to portray the peculiarities which sometimes mark the man of genius, they invade the privacy and disturb the peace of his surviving associates.

- Hobhouse, John Cam
16.

O God, that men should put an enemy in their mouths to steal away their brains! That we should with joy, pleasance, revel, and applause transform ourselves into beasts!

- Shakespeare, William
17.

Joy comes from using your potential.

- Schultz, Will
18.

The most wonderful of all things in life, I believe, is the discovery of another human being with whom one's relationship has a glowing depth, beauty, and joy as the years increase. This inner progressiveness of love between two human beings is a most marvelous thing, it cannot be found by looking for it or by passionately wishing for it. It is a sort of Divine accident.

- Sir Hugh Walpole
19.

My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it.

- Mark Twain
20.

May your walls know joy; May every room hold laughter and every window open to great possibility.

- Maryanne Radmacher-Hershey
