Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Joy
 
Sorrow is divine; but joy was divine first, and will be after weeping and sorrow are swept out of the universe. Joy is more divine than sorrow; for joy is bread, and sorrow is medicine.
        Henry Ward Beecher.—Sermons: “Plymouth Pulpit,” Second Series. The Perfect Manhood.
  1
Joy in one’s work is the consummate tool without which the work may be done indeed, but without which the work will always be done slowly, clumsily, and without its finest perfectness.
        Phillips Brooks.—Sermons: The Joy of Self-Sacrifice.
