Quotes by Jamie Cat Callan  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Joie de vivre is about loving life, loving people, loving to be alive, feeling alive. It is about smiling, being in your heart, and being grateful for all the beautiful things in your life: being in good health, being able to hear, to see, to walk, being grateful for all the lovely and loving people...”
Jamie Cat Callan, Bonjour, Happiness!: Secrets to Finding Your Joie de Vivre

“This is the essence of French joie de vivre. It is a gesture. An experience. It is the fleeting moment in time that can never be repeated and must be appreciated now before it flies away, gone forever.

It's about being present and alive to the ordinary moment. It's about friendship and the knowledge that nothing lasts forever. It is Zen. And for the Frenchwoman, I believe, it is the heart of happiness.”
Jamie Cat Callan, Bonjour, Happiness!: Secrets to Finding Your Joie de Vivre

“Joie de vivre is an attitude. It's a decision you make to live a life of joy. It's an invitation to this dance called life. All you have to do is leave the door slightly ajar and listen for the music.”
Jamie Cat Callan, Bonjour, Happiness!: Secrets to Finding Your Joie de Vivre
