human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercis except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure th has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure
