On Joy...


"We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, 
joy follows like a shadow that never leaves." 
--Buddha


"Joy in looking and comprehending is nature's most beautiful gift." --Albert Einstein


"Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls." 
--Mother Teresa


"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." --Eleanor Roosevelt

Great quotes, Darla Sue. We would all be the wiser and the more joyful to dwell on these rather than on what drags us down. Thank you. Maria from Delight Directed Living

Yes, the two things I collect the most--inspirational quotes and photos of my grandchildren! Thanks for reading. The way I see it, the more positive thoughts we think, the more happiness we feel, the better the world becomes.
