Delight
 
  I am convinced that we have a degree of delight, and that no small one, in the real misfortunes and pains of others.
        Burke—The Sublime and Beautiful. Pt. I. Sec. 14.
  1
  Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither, though, by your smiling, you seem to say so.
        Hamlet. Act II. Sc. 2. L. 321.
  2
Why, all delights are vain; and that most vain,
Which with pain purchas’d, doth inherit pain.
        Love’s Labour’s Lost. Act I. Sc. 1. L. 72.
  3
Their tables were stor’d full, to glad the sight,
And not so much to feed on as delight:
All poverty was scorn’d, and pride so great,
The name of help grew odious to repeat.
        Pericles. Act I. Sc. 4. L. 28.
  4
These violent delights have violent ends
And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,
Which as they kiss consume.
        Romeo and Juliet. Act II. Sc. 6. L. 9.
