There's not a joy the world can give like that it takes away.
Thich Nhat Hanh
Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.
You can’t fall if you don’t climb. But there’s no joy in living your whole life on the ground.
Life is a song - sing it. Life is a game - play it. Life is a challenge - meet it. Life is a dream - realize it. Life is a sacrifice - offer it. Life is love - enjoy it.
Joy is not in things, it is in us.
