Pleasure quotes
Pleasure
Reading well is one of the great pleasures that solitude can afford you.

- Harold Bloom
Self-pity is easily the most destructive of the non-pharmaceutical narcotics; it is addictive, gives momentary pleasure and separates the victim from reality.

- Gardner, John W.
A poet's pleasure is to withhold a little of his meaning, to intensify by mystification. He unzips the veil from beauty, but does not remove it.

- White, Elwyn Brooks
That young girl is one of the least benightedly unintelligent organic life forms it has been my profound lack of pleasure not to be able to avoid meeting.

- Marvin
Ay, he muttered, "sing awa', . . . wi' pretty fancies and gran' words, and gang to hell for it."
"To hell, Mr. Mackaye?"
"Ay, to a verra real hell, Alton Locke, laddie--a warse ane than any fiend's kitchen or subterranean Smithfield that ye'll hear o' in the pulpits--the hell on earth o' being a flunkey, and a humbug, and a useless peacock, wasting God's gifts on your ain lusts and pleasures--and kenning it--and not being able to get oot o' it for the chains of vanity and self-indulgence."

- Alton Locke, chap. viii. 1849.
Glorious bouquets and storms of applause are the trimmings which every artist naturally enjoys. But to move an audience in such a role, to hear in the applause that unmistakable note which breaks through good theatre manners and comes from the heart, is to feel that you have won through to life itself. Such pleasure does not vanish with the fall of the curtain, but becomes part of one's own life.

- Markova, Dame Alice
No man tastes pleasures truly, who does not earn them by previous business; and few people do business well, who do nothing else.

- Chesterfield, Lord
Most men pursue pleasure with such breathless haste that they hurry past it.

- Soren Kierkegaard
The same refinement which brings us new pleasures, exposes us to new pains.

- Edward Bulwer-Lytton
Capitalism is an art form, an Apollonian fabrication to rival nature. It is hypocritical for feminists and intellectuals to enjoy the pleasures and conveniences of capitalism while sneering at it. Everyone born into capitalism has incurred a debt to it. Give Caesar his due.

- Paglia, Camille
There exists, between people in love, a kind of capital held by each. This is not just a stock of affects or pleasure, but also the possibility of playing double or quits with the share you hold in the other's heart.

- Baudrillard, Jean
The goal towards which the pleasure principle impels us -- of becoming happy -- is not attainable: yet we may not -- nay, cannot -- give up the efforts to come nearer to realization of it by some means or other.

- Freud, Sigmund
One way of getting an idea of our fellow-countrymen's miseries is to go and look at their pleasures.

- Eliot, George
Catching a fly ball is a pleasure, but knowing what to do with it is a business.

- Henrich, Tommy
A test of what is real is that it is hard and rough. Joys are found in it, not pleasure. What is pleasant belongs to dreams.

- Weil, Simone
I do not speak to thee in drink but in tears, not in pleasure but in passion, not in words only, but in woes also.

- William Shakespeare
Life is essentially a cheat and its conditions are those of defeat... the redeeming things are not happiness and pleasure but the deeper satisfactions that come out of struggle.

Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.

- Aristotle
It is the mark of a mean, vulgar and ignoble spirit to dwell on the thought of food before meal times or worse to dwell on it afterwards, to discuss it and wallow in the remembered pleasures of every mouthful. Those whose minds dwell before dinner on the spit, and after on the dishes, are fit only to be scullions.

- Francis De Sales, St.
In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures.

- Gibran, Kahlil
