1. ‘Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.’ – Rumi

2. ‘They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world: someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for.’ – Tom Bodett

3. ‘A thing of beauty is a joy forever.’ – John Keats

4. ‘If I can see pain in your eyes then share with me your tears. If I can see joy in your eyes then share with me your smile.’ – Santosh Kalwar
