pleasure

A Quote by Lucius Annaeus Seneca on age, extremism, life, love, and pleasure

As for old age, embrace and love it. It abounds with pleasure, if you know how to use it. The gradually (I do not say rapidly) declining years are amongst the sweetest in a man's life; and, I maintain, that even where they have reached the extreme limit, they have their pleasure still.

Seneca (4 BC - 65 AD)
