Translated by. T. bailey saunders, . Le bonheur n'est pas chose aisée: il est très difficile de le trouver en nous, et impossible de le trouver ailleurs. If my object in these pages were to present a complete scheme of counsels and maxims for the guidance of life, I should have to repeat the numerous rules-some of them excellent-which have been drawn up by thinkers of all ages, from Theognis and Solomon down to La Rochefoucauld; and, in so doing, I should inevitably entail upon the reader. a vast amount of well-worn commonplace.
by T. Bailey (Thomas Bailey) Saunders. The first and foremost rule for the wise conduct of life seems to me to be contained in a view to which Aristotle parenthetically refers in the Nichomachean Ethics: or, as it may be rendered, not pleasure, but freedom from pain, is what the wise man will aim at. The truth of this remark turns upon the negative character of happiness,-the fact that pleasure is only the negation of pain, and that pain is the positive element in life.
