Pleasure quotes
One might think that the money value of an invention constitutes its reward to the man who loves his work. But speaking for myself, I can honestly say this is not so... I continue to find my greatest pleasure, and so my reward, in the work that precedes what the world calls success.

- Edison, Thomas A.
We may lay in a stock of pleasures, as we would lay in a stock of wine; but if we defer tasting them too long, we shall find that both are soured by age.

- Charles Caleb Colton
In the sweetness of friendship; let there be laughter and the sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.

- Kahlil Gibran
Taste is nothing but an enlarged capacity for receiving pleasure from works of imagination.

- Hazlitt, William
Pleasure and action make the hours seem short.

- William Shakespeare
When pleasure interferes with business, give up business.

- Proverb, American
The most remarkable aspect of the transition we are living through is not so much the passage from want to affluence as the passage from labor to leisure. Leisure contains the future, it is the new horizon. The prospect then is one of unremitting labor to bequeath to future generations a chance of founding a society of leisure that will overcome the demands and compulsions of productive labor so that time may be devoted to creative activities or simply to pleasure and happiness.

- Lefebvre, Henri
A young man of pleasure is a man of pains.

- Young
It wounds a man less to confess that he has failed in any pursuit through idleness, neglect, the love of pleasure, etc., etc., which are his own faults, than through incapacity and unfitness, which are the faults of his nature.

- Melbourne, Lord
The most delightful pleasures cloy without variety.

- Syrus, Publilius
Your chances of success are directly proportional to the degree of pleasure you desire from what you do. If you are in a job you hate, face the fact squarely and get out.

- Michael Korda
The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.

- Walter Bagehot
If we could get on without a wife, Romans, we would all avoid that annoyance; but since nature has ordained that we can neither live very comfortably with them nor at all without them, we must take thought for our lasting well-being rather than for the pleasure of the moment.

- Quintus Caecilius Metellus Numidicus
If pleasures are greatest in anticipation, just remember that this is also true of trouble.

- Hubbard, Elbert
A hot bath! I cry, as I sit down in it! Again as I lie flat, a hot bath! How exquisite a pleasure, how luxurious, fervid and flagrant a consolation for the rigors, the austerities, the renunciation of the day.

- Macaulay, Rose
The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.

- Jane Austen
He wins every hand who mingles profit with pleasure.

- Horace
What wisdom can there be to choose, what continence to forbear without the knowledge of evil? He that can apprehend and consider vice with all her baits and seeming pleasures, and yet abstain, and yet distinguish, and yet prefer that which is truly better, he is the true wayfaring Christian.

- Milton, John
No one can read with profit that which he cannot learn to read with pleasure.

- Porter, Noah
The true charm of pedestrianism does not lie in the walking, or in the scenery, but in the talking. The walking is good to time the movement of the tongue by, and to keep the blood and the brain stirred up and active; the scenery and the woodsy smells are good to bear in upon a man an unconscious and unobtrusive charm and solace to eye and soul and sense; but the supreme pleasure comes from the talk.

- Twain, Mark
