Joy brings ease and rest into our endeavors to bring the origins of suffering to an end.

Just as the whole earth cannot be destroyed by someone repeatedly hurling themselves against it, so too a compassionate heart will not be destroyed in an onslaught of adversity.

“As we discover more joy, we can face suffering in a way that ennobles rather than embitters. We have hardship without becoming hard. We have heartbreak without being broken.” – Desmond Tutu

“I teach one thing and one only: that is, suffering and the end of suffering.” – The Buddha
