Fierce Joy quotes by Terry Pratchett
#1. All this good fortune, all this fierce joy ... it was wrong. Surely the universe could not allow this amount of happiness in one man, not without presenting a bill. Somewhere a big dark wave was cresting, and when it broke over his head it would wash everything away. Some days, he was sure he could hear its distant roar ... #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Fierce Joy quotes by Margaret Mitchell
#2. There was a glow of grim pride in her usually gentle face, approbation and a fierce joy in her smile that equaled the fiery tumult in Scarlett's own bosom.
'Why-why-she's like me! She understands how I feel'! #Quote by Margaret Mitchell
Fierce Joy quotes by Sabrina Jeffries
#3. What you think you are inside doesn't matter, Morgan." She hastened over to sit beside him. "In the end, it's what a man does, how he acts, that shows his character. And I've never seen you act anything but nobly."
He lifted his face to hers, astonished at how fiercely she defended him, even after knowing the darkest secrets of his soul. "How can you be so sure of my character when I'm not even sure of it myself?"
"I can't help it," she said, her voice trembling. She dropped her eyes to the bench, turmoil showing in her sweet features. "I love you. And loving someone means believing in them."
She loved him? Despite knowing what he was? A fierce joy seized him before he could prevent it. He caught her by the chin and forced her to look at him, but her clear blue eyes held no hint of deception. "God help you if you don't mean that, ma belle ange. #Quote by Sabrina Jeffries
Fierce Joy quotes by Richard Matheson
#4. He thought about that visionary lady. To die, he thought, never knowing the fierce joy and attendant comfort of a loved one's embrace. To sink into that hideous coma, to sink then into death and, perhaps, return to sterile, awful wanderings. All without knowing what it was to love and be loved.
That was a tragedy more terrible than becoming a vampire. #Quote by Richard Matheson
Fierce Joy quotes by Shana Abe
#5. There is a fierce joy to letting loose, to cutting yourself free from all the countless mundane threads of restraint that fix like you in your place, that tighten so gradually day by day that you do not even realize how bowed you are until you're quit of them. #Quote by Shana Abe
Fierce Joy quotes by Philip Pullman
#6. Tirelessly they flew on and on, and tirelessly she kept pace. She felt a fierce joy possessing her, that she could command these immortal presences. And she rejoiced in her blood and flesh, in the rough pine bark she felt next to her skin, in the beat of her heart and the life of all her senses, and in the hunger she was feeling now, and in the presence of her sweet-voiced bluethroat daemon, and in the earth below her and the lives of every creature, plant and animal both; and she delighted in being of the same substance as them, and in knowing that when she died her flesh would nourish other lives as they had nourished her. #Quote by Philip Pullman

Fierce Joy quotes by Harvey Broome
#9. Where wilderness can still be found, the ancientness of the land and the nobility of man's struggle emerge. Wilderness is vastly different from the clutter and clatter of much of our civilized world. In wilderness one experiences exhilaration and joy. In freedom and simplicity, in its vitality and immense variety, happiness may not only be pursued; it is ofttimes found. #Quote by Harvey Broome
Fierce Joy quotes by Shigeru Miyamoto
#11. It would be a joy for me if someone who was working with me became a big success. #Quote by Shigeru Miyamoto
Fierce Joy quotes by Sherry Thomas
#12. Even now her body yearned to be closer to him. She wanted to press her nose into his skin and inhale hungrily - he always smelled as if he'd just taken a walk across a sunny meadow. She wanted to rub her palm against his jaw to feel the beginning of stubbles. She wanted to slide her hands underneath his shirt and learn every single shape and texture, with the fierce dedication she'd once put into mastering the Grandes Études. #Quote by Sherry Thomas
Fierce Joy quotes by Sheri Dew
#13. It is not possible to sin enough to be happy. It isn't possible to buy enough to be happy, or to entertain or indulge or pamper ourselves enough to be happy. It is not possible to hide enough or run far enough away from trials and troubles to be happy. Happiness and joy come only when we are living up to who we are ...
I have never met anyone who was happier because he was immoral, or because he was addicted to something, or because he was dishonest and compromised his integrity. #Quote by Sheri Dew
Fierce Joy quotes by Malcolm Muggeridge
#14. In worldly terms, she was totally innocent; Eve before the fall, with no knowledge of good and evil. She made one realize how necessary the Fall was; without it, there would have been no human drama, and so no literature, no art, no suffering, no religion, no laughter, no joy, no sin and no redemption. Only camera work (towards which Mrs. Dobbs's painting was reaching) and sociology (which her sister, Beatrice Webb, may be said to have invented). #Quote by Malcolm Muggeridge
Fierce Joy quotes by Toni Morrison
#15. I'm me," she whispered. "Me"
Nel didn't know quite what she meant, but on the other hand she knew exactly what she meant.
"I'm me. I'm not their daughter. I'm not Nel. I'm me. Me."
Every time she said the word me there was a gathering in her like power, like joy, like fear. Back in bed with her discovery, she stared out the window at the dark leaves of the horse chestnut.
"Me," she murmured. And then, sinking deeper into the quilts, "I want... I want to be... wonderful. Oh, Jesus, make me wonderful. #Quote by Toni Morrison
Fierce Joy quotes by Max De Pree
#16. In most vital organizations, there is a common bond of interdependence, mutual interest, interlocking contributions, and simple joy. #Quote by Max De Pree
Fierce Joy quotes by Paramahansa Yogananda
#17. {Yogananda on the death of his dear friend, the eminent 20th century scientist, Luther Burbank}

His heart was fathomlessly deep, long acquainted with humility, patience, sacrifice. His little home amid the roses was austerely simple; he knew the worthlessness of luxury, the joy of few possessions. The modesty with which he wore his scientific fame repeatedly reminded me of the trees that bend low with the burden of ripening fruits; it is the barren tree that lifts its head high in an empty boast.

I was in New York when, in 1926, my dear friend passed away. In tears I thought, 'Oh, I would gladly walk all the way from here to Santa Rosa for one more glimpse of him!' Locking myself away from secretaries and visitors, I spent the next twenty-four hours in seclusion...

His name has now passed into the heritage of common speech. Listing 'burbank' as a transitive verb, Webster's New International Dictionary defines it: 'To cross or graft (a plant). Hence, figuratively, to improve (anything, as a process or institution) by selecting good features and rejecting bad, or by adding good features.'

'Beloved Burbank,' I cried after reading the definition, 'your very name is now a synonym for goodness! #Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda
Fierce Joy quotes by Friedrich Schiller
#18. Joy, thou spark from Heav'n immortal, Daughter of Elysium! Drunk with fire, toward Heaven advancing Goddess, to thy shrine we come. Thy sweet magic brings together What stern Custom spreads afar; All men become brothers Where thy happy wing-beats are. #Quote by Friedrich Schiller
Fierce Joy quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#19. God Almighty, I don't want to ask for more. But to say more thanks. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Fierce Joy quotes by Ban Ki-moon
#20. When Nelson Mandela walked free, the world sang with joy. Ever since, South Africa has stood as a beacon of hope for Africa. #Quote by Ban Ki-moon
Fierce Joy quotes by Warren W. Wiersbe
#21. Money is the "god of this world," and it empowers millions of people to enjoy life by living on substitutes. With money, they can buy entertainment, but they can't buy joy. They can go to the drugstore and buy sleep, but they can't buy peace. Their money will attract lots of acquaintances but very few real friends. Wealth gains them admiration and envy but not love. It buys the best in medical services, but it can't buy health. #Quote by Warren W. Wiersbe
Fierce Joy quotes by Marva Collins
#22. When someone is taught the joy of learning, it becomes a life-long process that never stops, a process that creates a logical individual. That is the challenge and joy of teaching. #Quote by Marva Collins
Fierce Joy quotes by Denise Levertov
#23. 1) Did the people of Viet Nam
use lanterns of stone?
2) Did they hold ceremonies
to reverence the opening of buds?
3) Were they inclined to quiet laughter?
4) Did they use bone and ivory,
jade and silver, for ornament?
5) Had they an epic poem?
6) Did they distinguish between speech and singing?

1) Sir, their light hearts turned to stone.
It is not remembered whether in gardens
stone lanterns illumined pleasant ways.
2) Perhaps they gathered once to delight in blossom,
but after the children were killed
there were no more buds.
3) Sir, laughter is bitter to the burned mouth.
4) A dream ago, perhaps. Ornament is for joy.
All the bones were charred.
5) It is not remembered. Remember,
most were peasants; their life
was in rice and bamboo.
When peaceful clouds were reflected in the paddies
and the water buffalo stepped surely along terraces,
maybe fathers told their sons old tales.
When bombs smashed those mirrors
there was time only to scream.
6) There is an echo yet
of their speech which was like a song.
It was reported their singing resembled
the flight of moths in moonlight.
Who can say? It is silent now. #Quote by Denise Levertov
Fierce Joy quotes by William Shakespeare
#24. Silence is the perfectest herault of joy. I were but little happy if I could say how much. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Fierce Joy quotes by Walter Scott
#25. It is not fantasy's hot fire,
Whose wishes, son as granted, fly;
It liveth not in fierce desire,
With dead desire it doth not die;
It is the secret sympathy,
The silver link, the silken tie,
Which heart to heart, and mind to mind,
In body and in soul can bind. #Quote by Walter Scott
Fierce Joy quotes by Lloyd D. Newell
#26. There are two ways to look at life and the world. We can see the good or the bad, the beautiful or the ugly. Both are there, and what we focus on and choose to see is what brings us feelings of joy or feelings of despair. #Quote by Lloyd D. Newell
Fierce Joy quotes by Salvador Dali
#27. Every morning when I wake up, I experience an exquisite joy - the joy of being Salvador Dalí - and I ask myself in rapture: What wonderful things is this Salvador Dalí going to accomplish today? #Quote by Salvador Dali
Fierce Joy quotes by Charles L. Allen
#28. Contentment gives peace and joy in our minds and hearts, which is the reward of living God's way. #Quote by Charles L. Allen

#29. If we act like children of God, knowing that he loves us, our lives will be made new, filled with serenity and joy. #Quote by Pope Francis
Fierce Joy quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#30. Oh, give our frightened souls the sure salvation for which, O Lord, You taught us to prepare. And when this cup You give is filled to brimming with bitter suffering, hard to understand, we take it thankfully and without trembling, out of so good and so beloved a hand. Yet when again in this same world You give us the joy we had, the brightness of Your Sun, we shall remember all the days we lived through, and our whole life shall then be Yours alone. #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Fierce Joy quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#31. In the great pasture of life there are really only four kinds of creatures: sheep, as Dani likes to call them; shepherds who try to guide the sheep and keep them on the straight and narrow; sheepdogs who run them from field to field, prevent them from straying, and fight off the predators that come to slaughter and feast; and wolves, savage, fierce, and a law unto their own. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Fierce Joy quotes by Milan Ljubincic
#32. True joy blossoms in the garden of inner peace. #Quote by Milan Ljubincic
Fierce Joy quotes by Percy Bysshe Shelley
#33. Yet if we could scorn
Hate, and pride, and fear;
If we were things born
Not to shed a tear,
I know not how thy joy we ever should come near. #Quote by Percy Bysshe Shelley
Fierce Joy quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita

#36. The soul needs love more than the heart needs joy. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Fierce Joy quotes by Desmond Tutu
#37. What the Dalai Lama and I are offering," the Archbishop added, "is a way of handling your worries: thinking about others. You can think about others who are in a similar situation or perhaps even in a worse situation, but who have survived, even thrived. It does help quite a lot to see yourself as part of a greater whole." Once again, the path of joy was connection and the path of sorrow was separation. When we see others as separate, they become a threat. When we see others as part of us, as connected, as interdependent, then there is no challenge we cannot face - together. #Quote by Desmond Tutu
Fierce Joy quotes by Donna J. Haraway
#38. Weisser plainly treasures threse feelings and these relationships. She is quick to insist that at root her love is about "the deep pleasure, even joy, of sharing life with a different being, one whose thought, feelings, reactions, and probably survival needs are different from ours. And somehow in order for all the species in thi "band" to thrive, we have to learn to understand and respect those things. #Quote by Donna J. Haraway
Fierce Joy quotes by Dan Millman
#39. Sometimes sorrow, sometimes joy. But beneath it all remember the innate perfection of your life unfolding. That is the secret of unreasonable happiness. #Quote by Dan Millman
Fierce Joy quotes by Alma Guillermoprieto

Fierce Joy quotes by Vita Sackville-West
#43. The fount of joy was bubbling in thine eyes,
Dancing was in thy feet,
And on thy lips a laugh that never dies,
Unutterably sweet.
Dance on! for ever young, for ever fair,
Lightfooted as a frightened bounding deer,
Thy wreath of vine-leaves twisted in thy hair,
Through all the changing seasons of the year ... #Quote by Vita Sackville-West
Fierce Joy quotes by Charles Robert Maturin
#44. When one fierce passion is devouring the soul, we feel more than ever the necessity of external excitement; and our dependence on the world for temporary relief increases in direct proportion to our contempt of the world and all its works. He #Quote by Charles Robert Maturin

#48. You're water. We're the millstone.
You're wind. We're dust blown up into shapes.

You're joy. We're all the different kinds of laughing. #Quote by Rumi

Fierce Joy quotes by Peter Kreeft
#51. From the premise that Christianity is true it follows that the far-off glimpse of joy produced by fantasy is a glimpse of truth; that a great eucatastrophic tale like The Lord of the Rings is a gift of divine grace, an opening of the curtain that veils Heaven to earthly eyes, a tiny telepathic contact with the Mind of God. #Quote by Peter Kreeft
Fierce Joy quotes by Euginia Herlihy
