Exuberance: Kay Redfield Jamison's book about enthusiasm

There's a delightful piece that the author reads ... the passage is about enthusiasm and exuberance.

One joy scatters a hundred griefs
-- Chinese saying

Listen after minute 4:15
Exuberance on Amazon

"the capacity for joy"
minute 1:10

"a full joy comes in the morning."

our species is well-served with a variety of temperaments (See wikipedia listing for Temperament).

Exuberant people take in the world and act on it.

Minute 4:00
Joy widens our view of the world and expands imaginative thought.  Joy activates.  It can be an antidote for fatigue and discouragement.
