But I must explain to you how all this mis­taken idea of de­noun­cing plea­sure and prai­sing pain was born and I will give you a com­ple­te ac­count of the sys­tem, and ex­pound the ac­tu­al teach­ings of the great ex­plo­rer of the truth, the ma­ster buil­der of hu­man happ­iness.

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 toil and pain can pro­cure him some great plea­sure.
