the life of things

Bernard Malamud described life as a tragedy full of joy. This paradox has been on my mind all night:

Joy is the simplest form of gratitude. – Karl Barth

Find ecstasy in life; the mere sense of living is joy enough. – Emily Dickinson

Art is man’s expression of his joy in labor. – Henry A. Kissinger

With an eye made quiet by the power of harmony, and the deep power of joy, we see into the life of things. – William Wordsworth
