from Daily Peace Quotes:*

I had thought joy to be rather synonymous with happiness,
but it seems now to be far less vulnerable than happiness.
Joy seems to be a part of an unconditional wish to live,
not holding back because life may not meet our preferences and expectations.
Joy seems to be a function of the willingness to accept the whole,
and to show up to meet with whatever is there.
It has a kind of invincibility that attachment to any particular outcome would deny us.
– Rachel Naomi Remen
