the mystery of joy

What is this thing called joy and how do we find it and, more importantly, preserve it?

“Joy can be real only if people look upon their life as a service, and have a definite object in life outside themselves and their personal happiness.” – Leo Tolstoy

“Joy does not simply happen to us. We have to choose joy and keep choosing it every day.” – Henri Nouwen
