pleasure

A Quote by David. J. Schwartz, PhD on cheerfulness, defeat, failure, grief, happiness, hope, pleasure, promises, victory, and words

Use the big thinker's vocabulary. Use big, bright, cheerful words. Use words that promise victory, hope, happiness, pleasure, avoid words that create unpleasant images of failure, defeat, grief.

A Quote by Confucius on friendship, good, idleness, music, pleasure, and study

There are three sorts of pleasures which are advantageous, and three which are injurious. Finding pleasure in the discriminating study of ceremonies and music, finding pleasure in discussing the good points in the conduct of others, and finding pleasure in having many wise friends, these are advantageous. But finding pleasure in profligate enjoyments, finding pleasure in idle gadding about, and finding pleasure in feasting, these are injurious.
