Tasting the coming joy



“While other worldviews lead us to sit in the midst of life’s joys,
foreseeing the coming sorrows,

tasting the coming joy."

Loving it more



"The point is not that this world is too sad to love or too glad not to love;
the point is that when you do love a thing, its gladness is a reason for loving it,
and its sadness a reason for loving it more."
~G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy
