All modes of thought which attribute value

according to pleasure and pain

reveal themselves as shallow.


That we should aim at well being as a state

rather than as an end seems preposterous in the extreme.


History itself might indicate a different course

given its insistence on having raised us

to our heights through the great suffering of tumultuous events.


To pit… pity for the creature

against the pity of a creator

is not a teaching for the faint hearted…


But then, pleasure, pain and pity…

There are much deeper things at stake.
