9,269.  All comfort go with thee,

For none abides with me.  My joy is death.  (Death & Joy)  William Shakespeare, The First Part of the Contention II Henry VI II iv 88-89, Duchess

 

 

4,724.  For, having such a blessing in his lady,

He finds the joys of heaven here on earth.  (Woman & Lady & Joy) William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice III iv 70-71, Jessica to Lorenzo and Lancelot

 

 

9,297.  But now I lived, and life was death’s annoy;

But now I died, and death was lively joy.  (Death & Joy)  William Shakespeare, Venus and Adonis

 

 

67,954.  Comparison is the death of joy.  (Comparison & Joy)  Mark Twain

 

 

71,050.  Find ecstasy in life; the mere sense of living is joy enough.  (Ecstasy & Joy)  Emily Dickinson

 

 

76,335.  Hope elevates, and joy

Brightens his crest.  (Hope & Joy)  John Milton: Paradise Lost IX:633

 

 

77,915.  But headlong joy is ever on the wing.  John Milton, The Passion 1645

 

 

77,916.  Hence, vain deluding joys,

The brood of folly without father bred.  John Milton, Il Penseroso

 

 

77,917.  Joy is not in things, it is in us.  Richard Wagner

 

 

77,918.  Joy is never in our power, and pleasure often is.  (Joy & Pleasure)  C S Lewis

 

 

47,552.  A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:

Its loveliness increases; it will never

Pass into nothingness.  (Beauty & Joy)  John Keats, Endymion 1818

 

 

77,919.  Short is the joy that guilty pleasure brings.  (Joy & Pleasure)  Euripedes

 

 

77,920.  Beautified for mankind is love of the joys (that come) from women and offspring; and stored-up heaps of gold and silver, and horses branded (with their mark), and cattle and land.  That is comfort of the life of the world.  Allah!  With Him is a more excellent abode.  Koran 3:14

 

 

77,921.  And men are, that they might have joy.  Book of Mormon II Nephi 2:27

 

 

77,922.  Joy is not the same as pleasure or happiness.  A wicked and evil man may have pleasure, while any ordinary mortal is capable of being happy.  Pleasure generally comes from things, and always through the senses; happiness comes from humans through fellowship.  Joy comes from loving God and neighbor.  Pleasure is quick and violent, like a flash of lightning.  Joy is steady and abiding, like a fixed star.  Pleasure depends on external circumstances, such as money, food, travel, etc.  Joy is independent of them, for it comes from a good conscience and love of God.  Fulton J Sheen, Sheen’s Guide to Contentment 1967

 

 

77,923.  Joy to the world! the Saviour reigns;

Let men their songs employ;

While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains

Repeat the sounding joy.  Isaac Watts, Joy to the World! st2 

 

 

77,924.  ’Tis her privilege,

Through all the years of this our life, to lead

From joy to joy: for she can so inform

The mind that is within us, so impress

With quietness and beauty, and so feed

With lofty thoughts, that neither evil tongues,

Rash judgments, nor the sneers of selfish men,

Nor greetings where no kindness is, nor all

The dreary intercourse of daily life,

Shall e’er prevail against us, or disturb

Our cheerful faith that all which we behold

Is full of blessings.  William Wordsworth, Lines Composed a Few Miles Above Tintern Abbey: On Revisiting the Banks of the Wye During a Tour st4

 

 

77,925.  Each moment and whatever happens thrills me with joy.  Walt Whitman, Leave of Grass: Song of Myself 

 

 

47,725.  For present joys are more to flesh and blood

Than a dull prospect of a distant good.  (Good & Present & Joy)  John Dryden 1631-1700, The Hind and the Panther
