“Joy is not in things; it is in us”
“Joy is the feeling of grinning inside.”
“There are those who give with joy, and that joy is their reward.”
“You shall have joy, or you shall have power, said God; you shall not have both”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
"We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves."
