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.
