A Quote by Walt Whitman on chance, pleasure, and world

There's a man in the world who is never turned down, wherever he chances to stray; he gets the glad hand in the populous town, or out where the farmers make hay; he's greeted with pleasure on deserts of sand, and deep in the aisles of the woods; wherever he goes there's a welcoming hand-he's the man who delivers the goods.

A Quote by Vita Sackville-West on country, determination, experience, lies, life, observation, and pleasure

I suppose the pleasure of the country life lies really in the eternally renewed evidences of the determination to live. That is a truism when said, but anything but a truism when daily observed. Nothing shows up the difference between the thing said or read, so much as the daily experience of it.

A Quote by Violet Fane on birds, children, hope, life, pain, and pleasure

Here may I live what life I please, Married and buried out of sight, - Married to pleasure and buried to pain, - Hidden away amongst scenes like these, Under the fans of the chestnut trees; Living my child-life over again, With the further hope of a fallen delight, Blithe as the birds and wise as the bees.

A Quote by unknown on appreciation, day, facts, learning, life, men, pleasure, truth, work, and worth

Young men, and old men too, should learn the truth that the only real, lasting pleasure in life comes from being actively busy at some work every day; doing something worth while, and doing it as well as you know how. The more we appreciate this fact, the more will we be able to make the most of our lives.
