The most beautiful people we have known are those:
- explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing
- pleasure and praising pain was born
- the system and expound the actual teachings
- great explorer of the truth
To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure?
On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee.
