Joy: The Highest, Purest Emotion (A Severe Mercy)

“But if the best of life is, in fact, emotional, then one wanted the highest, the purest emotions: and that meant joy.

So if he wanted the heights of joy, he must have it, if he could find it, in great love. But in the books again, great joy through love always seemed go hand in hand with frightful pain…”

A Severe Mercy
