To delight in war is a merit in the soldier, a dangerous quality in the captain, and a positive crime in the statesman.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nor do I hear in my imagination the parts successively, I hear them all at once. What a delight this is! All this inventing, this producing, takes place in a pleasing, lively dream.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
That is a good book which is opened with expectation, and closed with delight and profit.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

To look almost pretty is an acquisition of higher delight to a girl who has been looking plain for the first fifteen years of her life than a beauty from her cradle can ever receive.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I have cultivated my hysteria with delight and terror. Now I suffer continually from vertigo, and today, 23rd of January, 1862, I have received a singular warning, I have felt the wind of the wing of madness pass over me.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There are in every man, always, two simultaneous allegiances, one to God, the other to Satan. Invocation of God, or Spirituality, is a desire to climb higher; that of Satan, or animality, is delight in descent.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We delight in one knowable thing, which comprehends all that is knowable; in one apprehensible, which draws together all that can be apprehended; in a single being that includes all, above all in the one which is itself the all.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is not a difficult matter to learn what it means to delight ourselves in the Lord. It is to live so as to please Him, to honor everything we find in His Word, to do everything the way He would like to have it done, and for Him.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
And what a delight it is to make friends with someone you have despised.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We women are always in danger of living too exclusively in the affections; and though our affections are perhaps the best gifts we have, we ought also to have our share of the more independent life -- some joy in things for their own sake. It is piteous to see the helplessness of some sweet women when their affections are disappointed -- because all their teaching has been, that they can only delight in study of any kind for the sake of a personal love. They have never contemplated an independent delight in ideas as an experience which they could confess without being laughed at. Yet surely women need this defense against passionate affliction even more than men.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Do you suffer your thoughts to tamper with evil; and to dally with wrong-doing? If so; you are not sincere. God will regard your thoughts; for thoughts are heard in heaven. If you willingly sin in thought; if you are base and guilty there; because you think that no eye will see your thoughts; the guilt and baseness will sooner or later break into the outlets of word and deed -- from thought to wish -- from wish to purpose -- from purpose to word -- from word to act -- from act to habit -- from delight in the imagination to consent in the will -- from deed to repeated transgression; such is the genesis of sin.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Freedom is not worth having if it does not connote freedom to err. It passes my comprehension how human beings, be they ever so experienced and able, can delight in depriving other human beings of that precious right.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Where secrecy reigns, carelessness and ignorance delight to hide while skill loves the light.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Riches do not delight us so much with their possession, as torment us with their loss.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Of journeying the benefits are many: the freshness it bringeth to the heart, the seeing and hearing of marvelous things, the delight of beholding new cities, the meeting of unknown friends, and the learning of high manners.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Civilization...is a matter of imponderables, of delight in the thins of the mind, of love of beauty, of honor, grace, courtesy, delicate feeling. Where imponderables, are things of first importance, there is the height of civilization, and, if at the same time, the power of art exists unimpaired, human life has reached a level seldom attained and very seldom surpassed.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Why does a virtuous man take delight in the landscapes? Because the din of the dusty world and the locked-in-ness of human habitations are what human nature habitually abhors; while on the contrary, haze, mist, and the haunting spirits of the mountains are what human nature seeks, and yet can rarely find.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Desire to know why, and how -- curiosity, which is a lust of the mind, that a perseverance of delight in the continued and indefatigable generation of knowledge -- exceedeth the short vehemence of any carnal pleasure.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The one who prosperity takes too much delight in will be the most shocked by reverses.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A little cooling down of animal excitability and instinct, a little loss of animal toughness, a little irritable weakness and descent of the pain-threshold, will bring the worm at the core of all our usual springs of delight into full view, and turn us into melancholy metaphysicians.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The hunger and thirst for knowledge, the keen delight in the chase, the good humored willingness to admit that the scent was false, the eager desire to get on with the work, the cheerful resolution to go back and begin again, the broad good sense, the unaffected modesty, the imperturbable temper, the gratitude for any little help that was given -- all these will remain in my memory though I cannot paint them for others.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is only beauty -- and it has only one perfect expression -- poetry. All the rest is a lie --except for those who live by the body, love, and, that love of the mind, friendship. For me, Poetry takes the place of love, because it is enamored of itself, and because its sensual delight falls back deliciously in my soul.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is no greater delight than to be conscious of sincerity on self-examination.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is the business of thought to define things, to find the boundaries; thought, indeed, is a ceaseless process of definition. It is the business of Art to give things shape. Anyone who takes no delight in the firm outline of an object, or in its essential character, has no artistic sense. He cannot even be nourished by Art. Like Ephraim, he feeds upon the East wind, which has no boundaries.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Revenge is barren of itself: it is the dreadful food it feeds on; its delight is murder, and its end is despair.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is no delight in owning anything unshared.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Love is but the discovery of ourselves in others, and the delight in the recognition.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Ron Burgundy: [singing] Gonna find my baby, gonna hold her tight / Gonna grab some afternoon delight / My motto's always been, "When it's right, it's right" / Why wait until the middle of a cold dark night?

Ron Burgundy: You guys have it, I think.

Brick Tamland: Man.
Ron Burgundy, Brian Fantana, Champ Kind, Brick Tamland: [singing] Afternoon delight.More [08/28/2005 12:08:00]
I found the absolute thrill of translating ancient poetic text into totally visceral, tangible and even relevant, immediate and urgent language... I was thrilled by Shakespeare. It surprised me, my profound delight in deciphering Shakespeare and making it completely flesh-and-blood.More [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
Bowen: I no longer try to change the world, dragon, I just try to get by in it.
Draco: Ah well, it's better than death, I suppose.
Bowen: Why? I would think you would welcome death. All of your friends gone, hunted wherever you go...
Draco: Do you delight in reminding me? Yes knight, I do long for death, but... fear it.
Bowen: Why? Aside from your misery, what's to lose?
Draco: My soul.More [09/25/2007 12:09:00]

Stephen Underschaft:
I'm sorry sir that you force me to forget the respect due to you as my father. I'm an Englishman, I will not hear the government of my country insulted!



Andrew Underschaft:
The government of your country! I am the government of your country! I and Lazarus. Do you suppose that you and half a dozen amateurs like you, sitting in a row in that foolish gavel shop, can govern a country like England? Be off with you my boy, and play with your historic parties, and leading articles, and burning questions, and the rest of your toys. And in return, you shall have the support and applause of my newspapers, and the delight of imagining that you're a great statesman.

Narrator:
Our vagabond camera takes us to beautiful Washington, D.C., the national capital of our United States, situated on the broad banks of the Potomac River. Living is pleasant and leisurely... for it is a city of formality and custom. Manners and courtesy are responsible for the well-ordered conduct of its daily affairs. The many fine restaurants of Washington are the delight of the epicurean and the gourmet, where one may enjoy to the full the rare dishes of the old south. Washington's beautiful homes have the quiet dignity of another day. Our trip would be incomplete if we neglected to visit the quiet, staid and dignified residential section. It is with pride that we view hospitable Washington, friendly Washington, welcoming us to her doorstep eagerly throwing wide her doors.



Hotel Clerk:
I'm sorry; there're no vacancies... positively no vacancies.

Daffy Duck:
Yes, gentlemen, I have here just about the handiest, dandiest little bookfull of gastronomical surprises that ever tempted the jaded palate of a fastidious f-f-food fancier. Oh, don't bother fixing anything for me. I just finished my lunch. Urp! Take this recipe, for instance. Bassinet of baby borscht with sour cream. Mmm-mmm!



Sam's Brother:
Yeah, yeah, but what does it say about roast duck?



Daffy Duck:
Roast duck? Yes, sir. Roast duck, Roast duck... Here we are. Roast duck a la Oscar. First you take a duck. After lopping off its head and feet, you place it in a... Hmm. "Lopping off its head and feet." Gulp. Soups! A very delicious soup can be made from diced duck.


[Turns pale]



Daffy Duck:
Di-di-di... What you want is a dish of delicious ice-cream. I'd like to see them sneak a duck into this one. Sundae Delight Supreme, sprinkled profusely with crushed duck. Gulp!

The Great Tyrant:
Tell me, my fancy-fuzzy freak: What do you think of, when you make love to Barbarella?



Pygar:
*Make* love? I do not understand.



The Great Tyrant:
Don't be coy with me, you are in no position. If only you had one eye in your head you could see what a delight I am, my face, my body, all my parts are a delight. An exquisite delight.



Pygar:
What is it you want?



The Great Tyrant:
I shall share my delights with you. You shall make love to me.

I wanna sit in front! And how come we ain't workin' no more?



Moses Pray:
'Cause we're on vacation, that's why, and Miss Delight and me are sittin' in front because we are two grown-ups and that's where grown-ups do the sittin'! And little children do not tell grown-ups what to do with their lives, you understand that?



Addie Loggins:
Well, she ain't my grown-up and I ain't plannin' no more to sit in the back. Not for no cow!



Moses Pray:
Will you keep your voice down? And Miss Delight ain't no cow. She's a proper woman. She has a high school diploma. And right now she's got to go to the bathroom, so you get on down to the car!



Addie Loggins:
She always has to go to the bathroom! She must have a bladder the size of a peanut! Well, I ain't gettin' back in that car... not until she gets out of it!

Patrick:
Oh great! This is what I get for trying to be a friend.



Taylor:
Well we obviously have two different interpretations of that word!



Patrick:
What's that supposed to mean?



Taylor:
It means that when it comes to men, you delight in being the bearer of bad news for all of us. You can disguise it all you want under the guise of 'Patrick's Good Advice' but it ain't shit but a pin... trying to pop all of our relationship balloons! Yeah, I knew Paul was sleeping with other people, but he told me we'd work it out. He promised we'd work it out.



Patrick:
He lied!

Jo:
Love isn't some treasure that needs finding, it's something that just happens. To anyone, at any given moment. To even the most skeptical minds. It's a magical feeling to be in love, that's why it hurts so much to fall out of it. The spell wears off. But the hurt, the agony, the betrayal we find in lost love, is outweighed ten fold by the delight we discover within it.
