  2. And Joy is Everywhere;

    It is in the Earth’s green covering of grass;
    In the blue serenity of the Sky
    In the reckless exuberance of Spring;
    In the severe abstinence of gray Winter;

    In the Living flesh that animates our bodily frame;
    In the perfect poise of the Human figure, noble and upright;
    In Living;
    In the exercise of all our powers;
    In the acquisition of Knowledge;
    In fighting evils …

    Joy is there Everywhere.
    ‘Ravindranath Tagore.
    Your collection of quotes is very nice.

  4. The quotes about joy show it for what it is; knowledge, laughter, love and ability to place things into perspective. The quote of the Swedish proverb about joy, “.Shared joy is a double joy, shared sorrow is half a sorrow~” is so true. If we share joy, it is DOUBLED and joy allows us to experience a huge sorrow as only HALF that sorrow. That shows the power of joy.
