joy

A Quote by Edward Morgan "E. M." Forster on feeling, joy, schools, and sorrow

[The Englishman] has been taught at his public school that feeling is bad form. He must not express great joy or sorrow, or even open his mouth too wide when he talks - his pipe might fall out if he did.

Eating is not merely a material pleasure. Eating well gives a spectacular joy to life and contributes immensely to goodwill and happy companionship. It is of great importance to the morale.

A Quote by Elias Penn-Smith on god, joy, and songs

Identify God's emissaries By the light in their eyes, By the lilt in their song, By the glow of their skin And the joy within; Not with the face of a dried-up peach, And a voice that would teach Of doom and sin.

A Quote by Elaine Christensen on age, birds, children, darkness, god, ideas, joy, justice, learning, pain, people, sleep, and water

I Have Learned 5 Things 1. The sulfurous flame sunbeams in corners lightning like cracked glass the bulb of an idea your dark eyes all have one source. 2. Pain is truer than people truer than a full plate truer than God 3. Joy is a suitcase packed with everyday things no beaded gowns, no hats no umbrella just pajamas, a toothbrush, sneakers. If it rains stand there soak up every drop like applause. 4. I have learned that I want less: the sound of lake water lapping tadpoles listless in sun-heated shallows wispy grass, knobby reeds greeting me, my name caught in their raspy throats one or two clouds and a bird, maybe, if it doesn't sing. 5. Old age is where you started, a child looking up at the light at jumbled faces at mouths whispering, "there, now, go back to sleep."

A Quote by Charles Edwin Markham on beauty, defeat, glory, grief, heart, joy, soul, and victory

Defeat may serve as well as victory To shake the soul and let the glory out. When the great oak is straining in the wind, The boughs drink in new beauty and the trunk Sends down a deeper root on the windward side. Only the soul that knows the mighty grief Can know the mighty rapture, Sorrows come To stretch out spaces in the heart for joy.

Edwin Markham (1852 - 1940)
