Eating On Shabbos

One should be extremely joyous on the holy Shabbos, and not show even the slightest trace of sadness or worry. Simply "take delight in G-d", and enjoy all the pleasures of Shabbos, in food and drink, as well as in fine clothing according to one's means. For the eating of Shabbos is entirely spiritual, entirely holy, and it ascends to a completely different place than the eating of the ordinary days of the week.

(Rebbe Nachman of Breslov)
