Things of Beauty is a joy forever.

Things of Beauty is a joy forever. 

Life presents us with many beautiful things. This may be a beautiful scene or a flower or a lonely night walk on a beach or a beautiful picture that fills us with peace. We must preserve these pretty memories in our minds. When we are not feeling so good, or are lonely or depressed we should recall these beautiful sights or experiences. This will make us happy. 

William Wordsworth has illustrated this idea beautifully in his poem ‘Daffodils’. Once he saw a sight of beautiful golden daffodils. This sight remained with him throughout his life. In later years, whenever he was in a vacant or pensive mood, he recollected the scene of the daffodils. This filled him with a great sense of peace and his heart warmed with pleasure. 

Life is full of simple, beautiful things. It is for us to use them to our advantage. We don’t have to spend money on luxurious holidays and expensive pastimes to find happiness. We can do so with simple memories that we have collected during the good times of our lives, when we have experienced beautiful things. Because such experiences will never be erased from our memories.
