“Joy is the satisfaction that comes when we find that for which we’ve been looking.”
Now this is a good insight into the fleeting quality of Joy, which appears not to be the thing sought but the result of finding something else. However, it is a rather gray sentence, a little bit surprising actually, as the author is a professor of theology and philosophy.
We changed it to this:
Joy arrives when we find what we need.
15 words to 8; a bit more punch, and rhetorically useful.
So dear Fresh Reader, which do you prefer? Do you have a better way to say it.
