Nothing is pleasant that is not spiced with variety.
Variety is the very spice of life, that gives it all its flavor.
The earth was made so various, that the mind of desultory man, studious of change, and pleased with novelty, might be indulged.
Variety's the source of joy below, from which still fresh revolving pleasures flow; in books and love, the mind one end pursues, and only change the expiring flame renews.
Countless the various species of mankind; countless the shades that separate mind from mind; no general object of desire is known; each has his will, and each pursues his own.
As land is improved by sowing it with various seeds so is the mind by exercising it with different studies.
Order in variety we see; though all things differ, all agree.
Variety alone gives joy; the sweetest meats the soonest cloy.
Variety of mere nothings gives more pleasure than uniformity of something.
How nature delights and amuses us by varying even the character of insects; the ill-nature of the wasp, the sluggishness of the drone, the volatility of the butterfly, the slyness of the bug!
The most delightful pleasures cloy without variety.
I take it to be a principal rule of life, not to be too much addicted to any one thing.
