Weekend Wisdom: Pleasure

Pleasure is the flower that passes; remembrance, the lasting perfume.

Jean de Boufflers

Most men pursue pleasure with such breathless haste that they hurry past it. 

Søren Kierkegaard

For some, pleasure is a fever they can’t shake. For others, it’s a disease they cannot seem to catch.

Terri Guillemets

The essence of pleasure is spontaneity.

Germaine Greer

Weekend Wisdom: Forwards, Backwards, Width & Depth

Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards. 

                                                                 –Soren Kierkegaard   

You can’t do anything about the length of your life, but you can do something about its width and depth.
