[ Also see Amusements Bliss Contentment Delight Happiness Joy Merriment Misery Pleasure Recreation Solitude ]

I have always said and felt that true enjoyment can not be described.
  [Fr., Je l'ai toujours dit et senti, la veritable jouissance ne se decrit point.]
      - Jean-Jacques Rousseau,
        The Confessions of Jean Jacques Rousseau
         (VIII)

You were made for enjoyment, and the world was filled with things which you will enjoy, unless you are too proud to be pleased by them, or too grasping to care for what you cannot turn to other account than mere delight.
      - John Ruskin, Stones of Venice
         (vol. I, ch. II)

A thing seriously pursued affords true enjoyment.
  [Lat., Res severa est verum gaudium.]
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca), Epistles
         (XXIII, 3, 4)

All solitary enjoyments, quickly fall, or become painful, so that, perhaps, no more insufferable misery can be conceived than that which must follow incommunicable privileges. Only imagine a human being condemned to perpetual youth while all around him decay and die. O, how sincerely would he call upon death for deliverance!
      - James Sharp

How could I, blest with thee, long nights employ;
  And how with the longest day enjoy!
    [Lat., Quam vellem longas tecum requiescere noctes,
      Et tecum longos pervigilare dies.]
      - Albius Tibullus, Carmina (III, 6, 53)

They most enjoy the world who least admire.
      - Edward Young
