Quotes about Joy

Find a place inside where there is joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.

Joseph Campbell

Happiness is a state of mind.
Joy, is a state of heart.

Natz Joy

When the mind is pure,
Joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.


When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.


Find joy in everything you choose to do. Every job, relationship, home… It’s your responsibility to love it, or change it.

Chuck Palahnuik

The joy of being is derived not from something that happens, or from some object, but from the essence of who you are.

Eckhart Tolle

Joy must be sharply distinguished both from Happiness and Pleasure. Joy (in my sense) has indeed one characteristic, and one only, in common with them; the fact that anyone who has experienced it will want it again. I doubt whether anyone who has tasted it would ever, if both were in his power, exchange it for all the pleasures in the world. But then Joy is never in our power, and Pleasure often is.
