Three quotations from the Angelic Doctor:
"Friendship is the source of the greatest pleasures, and without friends even the most agreeable pursuits become tedious. "
"Man cannot live without joy; therefore when he is deprived of true spiritual joys it is necessary that he become addicted to carnal pleasures. "
"Sorrow can be alleviated by good sleep, a bath, and a glass of wine. "
