Style is personal, is it not? You like something that your wife or girlfriend doesn’t, but that doesn’t matter because it’s distinctly you. Or does it matter?
“Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain…”
But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure?
On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain.
