What To Keep In Mind When Shooting In The Forest

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. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. 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. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? 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. These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammelled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every pain avoided. But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the obligations of business it will frequently occur that pleasures have to be repudiated and annoyances accepted. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse pains

  1. La ge9othermie est source d espior. Cependant, j ai entendu re9cemment qu acce9der au sous-sol pour aller chercher cet e9cart de tempe9rature capables de faire fonctionner une centrale de ce type, pouvait poser des proble8mes tels que ceux dont nous avons entendu parler au sujet des gaz de schistes.Ne connaissant rien e0 la ge9othermie industrielle, je me demande donc si cet argument est fonde9, totalement ou partiellement, ou s il s agit d un contre-feu allume9 par les chantres du nucle9aire L e9nergie mare9motrice, qui existe depuis des lustres, est elle-aussi une piste se9duisante.Comment se fait-il que l on en parle pas plus en France, pays ge2te9 pour son line9aire de cf4tesa0?Il existe un impact sur la relation terre-lune du fait de cette exploitation : un ralentissement de la rotation terrestre, scusez du peu ! Mais la technologie semble eatre en plein boum e0 ce sujet Quelqu un en sait-il un peu plus ici ? Du genre un Francis qui en sait e0 la fois beaucoup sur les endives et les prisons ?! Allez, demain c est Pe2ques, alors y a le temps pour les devoirs.
