“ Words are like nets - we hope they'll cover what we mean, but we know they can't possibly hold that much joy, or grief, or wonder. ”

There are moments when I wish I could roll back the clock and take all the sadness away, but I have the feeling that if I did, the joy would be gone as well.
You are feeling well when you are really happy, even if you are diagnosed as medically ill. Fundamentally well being means a certain level of joyfulness, certain exuberance of life
In mediocrity, there is comfort, but no joy. In going beyond your limits, there is joy, but maybe no comfort. You have to choose.
God turns you from one feeling to another and teaches by means of opposites, so that you will have two wings to fly, not one
When you feel someone else's pain and joy as powerfully as if it were your own, then you know you really loved them.
