The more worldly pleasure--the less happiness

(William Plumer, "Contentment" 1864)

I said in my heart, "Come now, I will test you with
pleasure--enjoy yourself!" But behold, this also was
vanity! I said of laughter, "It is mad," and of
pleasure, "What use is it?" (Ecclesiastes 2:1)

"Lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God" 2 Tim. 3:4

Many are not content, because they have so few worldly
pleasures. Yet it is commonly the case--that the more
worldly pleasure--the less happiness
there is.

The more pleasure--the more sin also!

The more pleasure--the more dreadful the last account!

The pleasures of sin are but for a season, and that season
is so short. The pleasures of sense are wholly insufficient
to give permanent enjoyment.

"All things are full of weariness beyond uttering. The eye is
 not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing."
    (Ecclesiastes 1:8)
