Examples of pleasures in a Sentence

  1. James Goldsmith:

    None has more frequent conversations with a disagreeable self than the man of pleasure; his enthusiasms are but few and transient; his appetites, like angry creditors, are continually making fruitless demands for what he is unable to pay; and the greater his former pleasures, the more strong his regret, the more impatient his expectations. A life of pleasure is, therefore, the most unpleasing life.

  2. Chinese Proverb:

    One should be just as careful in choosing one's pleasures as in avoiding calamities.

  3. C. S. Lewis:

    I sometimes wander whether all pleasures are not substitutes for joy.

  4. Charles Caleb Colton:

    We may lay in a stock of pleasures, as we would lay in a stock of wine; but if we defer tasting them too long, we shall find that both are soured by age.

  5. Charles Caleb Colton, Lacon, 1825:

    To know the pains of power, we must go to those who have it; to know its pleasures, we must go to those who are seeking it.
