Understanding the limitations of seeking pleasure, avoiding pain


Pleasure is the happiness of madmen,

while happiness is the pleasure of sages,”


Jules Barbey d’Aurevilly


My two cents: Chasing pleasure can lead to addiction, then suffering, whether it is money, power, sex, sugar, food or status.

Moderation and awareness decide how we chase pleasure.

We sure avoid pain and chase approval with a vengeance.
