Searching for Joy

There is always joy to be found at the dojang, but as I would like it to be more pervasive everywhere, I googled it to see what I could find.

Give not over thy soul to sorrow; and afflict not thyself in thy own counsel. Gladness of heart is the life of man and the joyfulness of man is length of days.
Ecclesiastes

We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.  Buddha

Things won are done, joy’s soul lies in the doing.
William Shakespeare

The only joy in the world is to begin.
Cesare Pavese
