This 365-photo-a-day motivational photography book unites inspiring words of joy with lovely National Geographic images of the world-a perfect gift to keep on your bedside table to read just before bed or first thing in the morning. Crafted in the tradition of the successful Offerings series from Abrams/Stewart Tabori & Chang, Daily Joy’s elegant design features 365 days of gorgeous National Geographic photography, each one paired with a meaningful quotation, meditation, or thought that will help readers find joy every day of the year. Each month has a theme, and all the quotes are centered around it: January/Renewal: “Just where you are–that’s the place to start.” –Pema Chodron February/Love: “Love one another, but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.” –Khalil Gibran March/Authenticity: “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” –Mahatma Gandhi April/Growth: “A jug fills drop by drop.” –Buddha May/Courage: “It takes as much courage to have tried and failed as it has to have tried and succeeded.” –Anne Morrow Lindbergh June/Perspective: “It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.” –J. K. Rowling July/Adventure: “Life itself is the proper binge.” –Julia Child August/Freedom: “Freedom is from within.” –Frank Lloyd Wright September/Purpose: “The right word may be effective, but no word was ever as effective as a rightly timed pause.” –Mark Twain October/Fulfillment: “Ah! There’s nothing like staying home for real comfort.” –Jane Austen November/Wisdom: “Sleep is the best meditation.” –The Dalai Lama December/Faith: “Peace is always beautiful.” –Walt Whitman As poet John Keats wrote, “A thing of beauty is a joy forever,” and readers will turn to Daily Joy year after year to find wonder, awe, and happiness in the world around them.
