 TimeFavorites

I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let`s face it, friends make life a lot more fun.

Charles Rozell Swindoll

If in our daily life we can smile, if we can be peaceful and happy, not only we, but everyone will profit from it. If we really know how to live, what better way to start the day than with a smile? Our smile affirms our awareness and determination to live in peace and joy.

Thich Nhat Hanh

I believe that if, at the end of it all, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do. To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try. I didn`t always know this, and am happy I lived long enough to find it out.

Roger Ebert

It is impossible to work and function well without love and joy being experienced.

Louise L. Hay

Life speeds by and no matter how much joy there is, there is sadness.

Penn Jillette

I was looking for joy, your treasure
you cried for me and I forgot you after all,
I did find nothing, but love
I got through, come and find me.

Jim Morrison

We live in a society where people are uncomfortable with not knowing. Children aren`t taught to say "I don`t know," and honesty in this form is rarely modeled for them. They too often see adults avoiding questions and fabricating answers, out of either embarrassment or fear, and this comes at a price. When children are embarrassed by or afraid of the feeling of not knowing, they are preoccupied with escaping their discomfort, rather than being motivated to learn. This robs them of the joy of curiosity. Let`s celebrate the feelings of awe and wonder in our children, as the foundation for all learning. Let`s teach children to say "I don`t know" and help them understand the power behind it. Let`s talk to them about how it feels to not know something. And, finally, let`s be honest with children about the limits of our own knowledge.

Annaka Harris

The glory of science is, that it is freeing the soul, breaking the mental manacles, getting the brain out of bondage, giving courage to thought, filling the world with mercy, justice, and joy.

Robert G. Ingersoll

There are moments when I wish I could roll back the clock and take all the sadness away, but I have the feeling that if I did, the joy would be gone as well. So I take the memories as they come, accepting them all, letting them guide me whenever I can.

Nicholas Sparks

Perhaps there could be no joy on this planet without an equal weight of pain to balance it out on some unknown scale.

Stephenie Meyer

Pleasure is always derived from something outside you, whereas joy arises from within.

Eckhart Tolle

If life in itself were a valuable possession and decidedly preferable to non-existence, the gate need not be occupied by such terrible guards as death and its terrors. But who would persevere in life as it is, if death were less frightful? And who could even so much as endure the thought of death, if life were a joy?

Arthur Schopenhauer

It`s always necessary to know when a stage of one`s life has ended. If you stubbornly cling to it after the need has passed, you lose the joy and meaning of the rest.

Paulo Coelho

Joy in the universe, and keen curiosity about it all - that has been my religion.

John Burroughs

The walls we build around us to keep sadness out also keeps out the joy.

Jim Rohn
