The Pursuit of Pleasure.
As we grow up we experience various pleasures.
And as these pleasures bring a small amount of happiness into our lives we assume that more pleasures will make us happier still.
But this is not the case.
The pursuit of pleasure brings about a kind of world-weary emptiness which can even lead to thoughts of suicide.
As with most things it is best to keep our pleasures to a moderate level.
It is not pleasure which brings us happiness but love.
And love is its own reward.
