When I come into the theatre I get a sense of security. I love an audience. I love people, and I act because I like trying to give pleasure to people.
The greatest and noblest pleasure which we have in this world is to discover new truths, and the next is to shake off old prejudices.
Frederick the Great
In love, as in gluttony, pleasure is a matter of the utmost precision.
Whatever it is that I feel, I express it! I am free with my joy, my laughter, my pleasure, my pain, and I am blessed in that way as an actress that I can access those feelings within myself and not be ashamed to show whatever that is that's appropriate for the character.
I am now quite cured of seeking pleasure in society, be it country or town. A sensible man ought to find sufficient company in himself.
Pleasure is a necessary reciprocal. No one feels, who does not at the same time give it. To be pleased, one must please. What pleases you in others, will in general please them in you.

Edgar Allan Poe
When work is a pleasure, life is a joy! When work is a duty, life is slavery.
Every now and then I read a poem that does touch something in me, but I never turn to poetry for solace or pleasure in the way that I throw myself into prose.
J. K. Rowling
Throughout my years, I've had the pleasure of assembling and training what I believe to be the best group of people in the world. People with the presence of mind to deal with any flare-up, including my own. People who share the belief that nothing is impossible.
Art is contemplation. It is the pleasure of the mind which searches into nature and which there divines the spirit of which nature herself is animated.
I give so much pleasure to so many people. Why can I not get some pleasure for myself?
