Sneezing was just as much fun - the way you felt it swelling up with a vengeance inside you, until it became irresistable and you breathed in and out in one great frenzy, gave yourself over to the bliss of it, your face drunk with pleasure - you could forget the whole world in one blessed eruption. But sometimes they came in twos or threes, one right after the other. Those were the pleasures in life that didn't cost a cent.
Thomas Mann, The Magic Mountain pg170
