C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Bliss
 
  The bliss that can be told is but half-bliss.
Bulwer-Lytton.    
  1
  And for our country ’tis a bliss to die.
Homer.    
  2
  Every one speaks of it,—who has known it?
Mme. Necker.    
  3
  Pure felicity is reserved for the heavenly life; it grows not in an earthly soil.
Chapin.    
  4
  Who falls from all he knows of bliss, cares little into what abyss.
Byron.    
  5
        The way to bliss lies not on beds of down,
And he that had no cross deserves no crown.
Quarles.    
  6
        Some place the bliss in action, some in ease,
Those call it pleasure, and contentment these.
Pope.    
  7
  Though duller thoughts succeed, the bliss e’en of a moment still is bliss.
Joanna Baillie.    
  8
        Vain, very vain, my weary search to find
That bliss which only centres in the mind.
Goldsmith.    
  9
        Domestic happiness, thou only bliss
Of Paradise, that has survived the fall!
Cowper.    
  10
  We may anticipate bliss but who ever drank of that enchanted cup unalloyed?
Colton.    
  11
        Condition, circumstance, is not the thing;
Bliss is the same in subject or in king.
Pope.    
  12
        Health is the vital principle of bliss,
And exercise of health.
Thomson.    
  13
  The happiest woman sees not gladness alone reflected from her mirror; its surface will inevitably be sometimes dimmed with sighs.
Mme. Louise Colet.    
  14
        Alas! by some degree of woe
  We every bliss must gain;
The heart can ne’er a transport know,
  That never feels a pain.
Lord Lyttleton.    
  15
        Bliss in possession will not last;
Remember’d joys are never past;
At once the fountain, stream, and sea,
They were,—they are,—they yet shall be.
Montgomery.    
  16
