But I have to clarify to you the way all this mistaken concept of denouncing pleasure and praising ache was born and I will provide you with an entire account of the system, and expound the precise teachings of the nice explorer of the reality, the master-builder of human happiness.
No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, as a result of it’s pleasure, however as a result of those that have no idea how one can pursue pleasure rationally encounter penalties which can be extraordinarily painful. Nor once more is there anybody who loves or pursues or needs to acquire ache of itself, as a result of it’s ache, however as a result of sometimes circumstances happen during which toil and ache can procure him some nice pleasure.
To take a trivial instance, which of us ever undertakes laborious bodily train, besides to acquire some benefit from it? But who has any proper to search out fault with a person who chooses to take pleasure in a pleasure that has no annoying penalties, or one who avoids a ache that produces no resultant pleasure?
