Joie De Vivre!!!
de vivre (from the French joie, "joy"; de, "of";
vivre, "to live, living") is a term used to express a
cheerful enjoyment of life. Joie de vivre, as one scholar has
written, "can be a joy of conversation, joy of eating, joy
of anything one might do… And joie de vivre may be seen as
a joy of everything, a comprehensive joy, a philosophy of life, a
Weltanschauung. Robert's Dictionnaire says joie is sentiment
exaltant ressenti par toute la conscience, that is, involves
one's whole being."
