This quote by Jean Antoine Petit-Senn implies that joy can not be found or accomplished by merely actively looking for it; rather, happiness is often discovered unexpectedly, in the most unanticipated or not likely locations. Joy is not something that can be bought or pursued, but something that should be valued and experienced as it comes naturally. It emphasizes the importance of appreciating the little moments in life and being open to new and unanticipated experiences. Joy can frequently be discovered in the simple things in life, such as hanging out with liked ones, taking pleasure in nature, or pursuing a pastime or enthusiasm.
