Daily Dose

From An Essay On Man, by Alexander Pope


"Self-love and Reason, to one end aspire,
Pain their aversion, Pleasure their desire;
But greedy that its object would devour,
This taste the honey, and not wound the flow'r:
Pleasure, or wrong or rightly understood,
Our greatest evil, or our greatest good."

From Epistle III.
