"Happiness has an opposite; joy does not. As long as we seek happiness, we're going to have unhappiness, . . . Joy can be having a sore throat; it can be getting laid off; it can be unexpectedly having to work overtime. It can be having to take a math exam or dealing with one's former spouse who wants more money." --Joko BeckSaturday Zen: Sat Aug 25, 10:00 - 11:45am
