Morning Trip (225)

“I certainly wasn’t happy. Happiness has to do with reason, and only reason earns it. What I was given was the thing you can’t earn, and can’t keep, and often don’t even recognize at the time; I mean joy.”
–Ursula K. Le Guin

One thought on “Morning Trip (225)

  1. OK, another fascinating quote. (I don’t always click on the videos, but do enjoy reading the quotes.) Yes, there does seem to be a qualitative difference between happiness and joy. Happiness does feel earned…joy is more like grace. I also think that joy is at the very center of who we are before we add on our story of who we think we are.
