Then a priestess said, Speak to us of Prayer.
And he ansered, saying:
You pray in your distress and in your need; would that you might pray also in the fullness of your joy and in your days of abundance

Kahill Gibran,
The Prophet

From joy

by joy it is sustained,
towards joy it proceeds,
and to joy it returns.

Mundaka Upanishad
