We could never learn to be brave and patient, if there were only joy in the world.
Work is love made visible. And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy.
We lavish on animals the love we are afraid to show to people. They might not return it; or worse, they might.
Only when we give joyfully, without hesitation or thought of gain, can we truly know what love means.
I am forever grateful for the happiness and joy you have brought into my life.
A thing of beauty is a joy forever: Its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness.
The best thing about having forever is you. We are timeless. Together, we will always have stability, friendship, laughter and joy. I love you.
Compassion for animals is intimately associated with goodness of character, and it may be confidently asserted that he who is cruel to animals cannot be a good man.
When I look into the eyes of an animal, I do not see an animal. I see a living being. I see a friend. I feel a soul.
