All in heaven take joy in sharing their delights and blessings with others. ~ Emanuel Swedenborg

Delight is a word indicating sensations of pleasure or joy, or the process of giving pleasure or happiness.


  • I am convinced that we have a degree of delight, and that no small one, in the real misfortunes and pains of others.
    • Edmund Burke, The Sublime and Beautiful, Part I, Section 14.
  • Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither, though, by your smiling, you seem to say so.
  • 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.
  • These violent delights have violent ends
    And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,
    Which as they kiss consume.
  •                 [D]elight
      That is as wide-eyed as a marigold.
    • Lord Alfred Bruce Douglas, Impression de Nuit—"The Green River"
