DELIGHT
[ Also see Amusements Blessedness Bliss Contentment Disappointment Enjoyment Happiness Joy Merriment Paradise Pleasure Smiles ]

A sip is the most than mortals are permitted from any goblet of delight.
      - Amos Bronson Alcott

I am convinced that we have a degree of delight, and that no small one, in the real misfortunes and pains of others.
      - Edmund Burke, The Sublime and Beautiful
         (pt. I, sec. 14)

The last excessive feelings of delight are always grave.
      - Leigh Hunt (James Henry Leigh Hunt)

Man delights not me--nor woman neither, though, by your smiling you seem to say so.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at II, ii)

Why, all delights are vain, but that most vain
  Which, with pain purchased, doth inherit pain:
    As, painfully to pore upon a book,
      To seek the light of truth, which truth the while
        Doth falsely blind the eyesight of his look.
      - William Shakespeare, Love's Labor's Lost
         (Berowne at I, i)

This Tharsus, o'er which I have the government,
  A city on whom Plenty held full hand,
    For Riches strewed herself even in her streets;
      Whose towers bore heads so high they kissed the clouds,
        And strangers ne'er beheld but wond'red at;
          Whose men and dames so jetted and adorned,
            Like one another's glass to trim them by;
              Their tables were stored full, to glad the sight,
                And not so much to feed on as delight;
                  All poverty was scorned, and pride so great
                    The name of help grew odious to repeat.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Pericles Prince of Tyre (Cleon at I, iv)

These violent delights have violent ends
  And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,
    Which, as they kiss, consume.
      - William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
         (Friar Laurence at II, vi)

A lonely impulse of delight.
      - William Butler Yeats
