“The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.”
  ~ e. e. cummings

He who binds to himself a joy
Does the winged life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity’s sun rise.
  ~ William Blake

The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding.
  ~ Leonardo da Vinci

A thing of beauty is a joy forever;
its loveliness increases;
it will never pass into nothingness.
  ~ John Keats

Find a place inside where there’s joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.
  ~ Joseph Campbell

A sense of humor . . . is needed armor.
Joy in one’s heart and some laughter on one’s lips
is a sign that the person down deep has a pretty good grasp of life.
  ~ Hugh Sidey
