„To a man of pleasure every moment appears to be lost, which partakes not of the vivacity of amusement.“

—  Joseph Addison politician, writer and playwright 1672 - 1719
Very often attributed to Addison, this is apparently a paraphrase of a statement by Hugh Blair, published in Blair's Sermons (1815), Vol. 1, p. 219, where he mentions "men of pleasure and the men of business", and that "To the former every moment appears to be lost, which partakes not of the vivacity of amusement".

„My thought is a tender leaf that sways in every direction and finds pleasure in its swaying.“

—  Khalil Gibran Lebanese artist, poet, and writer 1883 - 1931
Context: My thought is a tender leaf that sways in every direction and finds pleasure in its swaying. Your thought is an ancient dogma that cannot change you nor can you change it. My thought is new, and it tests me and I test it morn and eve. You have your thought and I have mine.
