    I like a lot of words (percipience, amelioration, audacity, austerity, auspicious, alacrity) ... some of them just feel good in the mouth.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    nonconscious

    It's what Freud was trying to get at, minus his own personal perverted thoughts.

    Melancholy

    Such a sad word, but full of lovely sounds.

    It would be even prettier if it sounded like Selladore or Selladora.

    Agreed.

    I also like the word amore. Italian. A big pizza pie; that's amore!

    Chez. French for "at the home of..." I love it because the z is silent, and it's elegant - it says in one word what we say in two, three or more.

    Chez moi. "At my house." Still love it.

    In Japanese:

    Oshiharu.
    "pining for spring" - that sense of longing and regret, for that which you once had, and will not see again. Too many words in English.. . I've not been able to find the equivalent.

    In English:

    ephemeral.

    possibilities.


    In Spanish (a phrase, sorry hahaha):

    la alma de mi corazon
    the soul of my heart.

    There's also a phrase in French: Esprit d'escalier, which literally means 'spirit of the staircase' but idiomatically it refers to when you think of a witty comeback just too late.
