A Quote by Alexander Pope on death, joy, pain, spirit, thinking, and thought

Wise wretch! with pleasures too refined to please; With too much spirit to be e'er at ease With too much quickness ever to be taught; With too much thinking to have common thought. You purchase pain with all that joy can give, And die of nothing but a rage to live.

Alexander Pope (1688 - 1744)

A Quote by Aleister Crowley on change, death, eternity, exercise, experience, growth, idealism, joy, life, mankind, and mistakes

The joy of life consists in the exercise of one's energies, continual growth, constant change, the enjoyment of every new experience. To stop means simply to die. The eternal mistake of mankind is to set up an attainable ideal.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on ambition, children, day, future, happiness, joy, life, play, spirit, and work

I feel that you are justified in looking into the future with true assurance, because you have a mode of living in which we find the joy of life and the joy of work harmoniously combined. Added to this is the spirit of ambition which pervades your very being, and seems to make the day's work like a happy child at play.

The ambitious will always be first in the crowd; he presseth forward, he looketh not behind him. More anguish is it to his mind to see one before him, than joy to leave thousands at a distance.

A Quote by A. Eustace Haydon on assumptions, creation, good, idealism, joy, life, past, responsibility, and world

Responsibility for the creation of the good world in which the good life may be realized, which the frustrated ages of the past loaded upon the gods, is now being assumed by man. The ideal of this modern drift is the realization of the full joy in living.
