Memories of the Months

Excerpt from Memories of the Months: Second Series IT is probably a mere philological accident, devoid of moral significance, that, in the whole of the English version of the Old and New Testaments, there is not a single instance of the use of the substantives enjoy ment' and 'happiness.' Frequent mention of 'joy' and 'pleasure, ' but the first seems to verge too closely upon the boisterous, or at least the exuberant, and the other to have become tainted too grossly in human handling to express precisely the sensation stirred by weather fair or foul, by noble landscape, by the every day operations of nature, and by communion, oral or literary, with higher intellects than our own. One derives pleasure from, and feels joy in, all such things, but they inspire something incapable of interpretation by either of these terms; something which the French denote by bonhewr, and we, in defiance of obvious etymology, by 'happiness.'
