5 Delight Quotes
I am convinced that we have a degree of delight, and that no
small one, in the real misfortunes and pains of others.

Man delights not me--nor woman neither, though, by your smiling
you seem to say so.
Quotes , Source: 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.
Quotes , Source: 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.
Quotes , Source: 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.
