But in order that you may understand whence every born error is the pleasure of accusing and praising the pain, I will open the whole matter, and will explain the very things which were said by that inventor of the truth and as it were the architect of the blessed life. For no one rejects, or hates, or shuns pleasure, because it is pleasure itself, but because great pains result from those who do not know how to follow pleasure by reason. Moreover, there is no one who desires to obtain pain itself because pain is important, enhanced, but because times of such a nature do not occur so that by toil and pain he may seek some great pleasure. For, to the slightest degree, who of us undertakes any laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? Who, however, rightfully condemns him who wishes to be in that pleasure rather than obtain no annoyance?
But we both accuse and deem them most worthy of just hatred, who, blinded by the desire to soothe the flattery of the present pleasures, and corrupted by the flattery of their present pleasures, do not foresee what pains and what troubles they will receive; And the distinction between these things is easy and easy. For in free time, when the choice of choosing is free for us, and when nothing prevents us from being able to do what is most pleasing, every pleasure must be taken up, and every pain avoided. But in certain times, and often due to obligations or necessities of life, it will happen that both pleasures must be repudiated and annoyances not accepted. Accordingly, the choice of those things is bound here by the wise man, so that either by rejecting his pleasures, he may obtain at other times greater pleasures, or drive back the more severely endured pains.
