The True Source of Joy

Post image for The True Source of Joy

in Quotations

The true source of joy is love – love of God, love of beauty, love of wisdom, love of another human being, it does not matter which.

if she is a true human being,
is enough to make the
whole world rejoice. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
