Pleasure is the structure of society. From childhood until death we are secretly, cunningly or obviously pursuing pleasure. So whatever our form of pleasure is, I think we should be very clear about it because it is going to guide and shape our lives. It is therefore important for each one of us to investigate closely, hesitantly and delicately this question of pleasure. For to find pleasure, and then nourish and sustain it, is a basic demand of life, and without it existence becomes dull, stupid, lonely, and meaningless. You may ask why then should life not be guided by pleasure? For the very simple reason that pleasure must bring pain, frustration, sorrow, fear, and out of fear, violence. If you want to live that way, live that way. Most of the world does, anyway., but if you want to be free from sorrow you must understand the whole structure of pleasure.
