I have drunken deep of joy,
  And I will taste no other wine to-night.
      - Percy Bysshe Shelley, The Cenci
         (act I, sc. 3, l. 92)

The very society of joy redoubles it; so that, whilst it lights upon my friend it rebounds upon myself, and the brighter his candle burns the more easily will it light mine.
      - Bishop Robert South

There is a sweet joy which comes to us through sorrow.
      - Charles Haddon Spurgeon,
        Gleanings Among the Sheaves--Sweetness in Sorrow

Joy never feasts so high as when the first course is of misery.
      - Sir John Suckling

I found more joy in sorrow than you could find in joy.
      - Sara Teasdale (Mrs. E.B. Filsinger)

The cup of joy is heaviest when empty.
      - Marguerite de Valois

The excursion is the same when you go looking for your sorrow as when you go looking for your joy.
      - Eudora Welty

The source of one's joy is also often the source of one's sorrow.
      - Jessamyn West

Beauty for Ashes, and oil of joy!
      - John Greenleaf Whittier, The Preacher
         (st. 26), quoting Isaiah, ch. LXI, v. 3

And often, glad no more,
  We wear a face of joy, because
    We have been glad of yore.
      - William Wordsworth, The Fountain

Joy is the will which labors, which overcomes obstacles, which knows triumph.
      - William Butler Yeats

Far beneath a soul immortal is a mortal joy.
      - Edward Young

Joy is an import; joy is an exchange;
  Joy flies monopolists: it calls for two;
    Rich fruit! Heaven planted! never pluck'd by one.
      - Edward Young

Joy is as import; joy is an exchange;
  Joy flies monopolists: it calls for two;
    Rich fruit! Heaven planted! never pluck'd by one.
      - Edward Young

Joy wholly from without, is false, precarious, and short. From without it may be gathered; but, like gathered flowers, though fair, and sweet for a season, it must soon wither, and become offensive. Joy from within is like smelling the rose on the tree; it is more sweet and fair, it is lasting; and, I must add, immortal.
      - Edward Young

Joys season'd high, and tasting strong of guilt.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night VIII, l. 835)
