The best things in life are nearest. Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right before you.

A Quote by Harry Palmer on appreciation

Appreciation is a combination of understanding, quiet amazement, and gratitude.  Appreciating something permits its experience and integration. 

The only things that burden or define us are those things that are not appreciated.  In the presence of appreciation, desire and resistance transform into knowledge.

A Quote by Leo F. Buscaglia on love, joy, hope, work, growth, expression, exaltation, knowledge, appreciation, reward, gratitude, and loving

Man has not yet learned to work for the joy of work, learn for the sake of growth, create for the expression and the exaltation in the act, or to love simply for the pleasure of loving: he still requires a reward. Until a man learns to do these things, hope will have to be his basic motivating force. In work, he'll require more wages and better titles; in knowledge, he'll require degrees and diplomas; in creativity, he'll require recognition; in love, he'll require assurance. Until he appreciates that each of these are their own reward, he'll need hope as his crutch. There is nothing wrong with hope; it is simply the second best thing. For love goes beyond hope. Hope is a beginning. Love is forever.

Joy is an attitude; it is the presence of love - for self and others. It comes from a feeling of inner peace, the ability to give and receive, and appreciation of the self and others. It is a state of gratitude and compassion, a feeling of connection to your higher self.
