Pleasure and Grief

Lacey McKinney

Lacey McKinney

PLEASURE, when it is of the spirit of inactivity, ends in grief; grief when it is of the spirit of energy, leads to pleasure; prosperity and happiness dwell with the man of energy, not with the lazy one. But be it pleasure or pain, sweet or bitter, a man should bear with what befalls, as it befalls, unconquered of spirit. A thousand motives of sorrow and a hundred motives of fear fall daily upon the erring, but none upon the wise.
