12 Joy Quotes from Literature

"But you see, I have, let's say, sixty years to live. Most of that time will be spent working. I've chosen the work I want to do. If I find no joy in it, then I'm only condemning myself to sixty years of torture. And I can find the joy only if I do my work in the best way possible to me. But the best is a matter of standards--and I set my own standards. I inherit nothing. I stand at the end of no tradition. I may, perhaps, stand at the beginning of one." ~ The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand Unlike the gold which needed nothing, and must be worshipped in close-locked solitude—which was hidden away from the daylight, was deaf to the song of birds, and started to no human tones—Eppie was a creature of endless claims and ever-growing desires, seeking and loving sunshine, and living sounds, and living movements; making trial of everything, with trust in new joy, and stirring the human kindness in all eyes that looked on her. ~ Silas Marner by George Eliot "It seemed to me that where others had prayed before to their God, in their joy or in their agony, was of itself a sacred place." ~ Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell But paying is part of the game of life: it is the joy of buying that we crave. ~ The Battle Of The Strong by Gilbert Parker Joy and grief were mingled in the cup; but there were no bitter tears: for even grief itself arose so softened, and clothed in such sweet and tender recollections, that it became a solemn pleasure, and lost all character of pain. ~ Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens "Give me a moment, because I like to cry for joy. It's so delicious, John dear, to cry for joy." ~ Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens "Her heart--is given him, with all its love and truth. She would joyfully die with him, or, better than that, die for him. She knows he has failings, but she thinks they have grown up through his being like one cast away, for the want of something to trust in, and care for, and think well of." ~ Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens "Great sorrow or great joy should bring intense hunger--not abstinence from food, as our novelists will have it." ~ The Poison Belt by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle She could not explain in so many words, but she felt that those who prepare for all the emergencies of life beforehand may equip themselves at the expense of joy. ~ Howards End by E. M. Forster To his pure and knightly soul not Edith alone, but every woman, sat high and aloof, enthroned and exalted, with a thousand mystic excellencies and virtues which raised her far above the rude world of man. There was joy in contact with them; and yet there was fear, fear lest his own unworthiness, his untrained tongue or rougher ways should in some way break rudely upon this delicate and tender thing. ~ Sir Nigel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
