 "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum", written by Cicero in 45 BC

Translation from 1914 by H. Rackham
"But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure?"

"On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammelled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every pain avoided. But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the obligations of business it will frequently occur that pleasures have to be repudiated and annoyances accepted. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse pains."

Cicero

Add Tom and Jerry to the list of reasons for violence and extremism in the middle east.

Cartoons are to blame.  First in France, now in the middle east:  'Tom and Jerry portrays "the violence in a funny manner and sends the message that, yes, I can hit him ... and I can blow him up with explosives. It becomes set in (the viewer's) mind that this is natural," SIS head Salah Abdel Sadek told the audience, according to a translation by the website EgyptianStreets.com'  ... '"It has become very normal for a young man to spend long hours playing video games, killing and spilling blood, and he's happy and content," Abdel Sadek continued. He added, according to the website, that youths are "faced with social pressures that push them to resort to violence, which they consider normal and understandable."'

the above is a bit of  "loving sabotage"  -->  http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/511TVZ0PDML._SX311_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg  by Amelie Nothomb.   Here it is in the original  french -->  http://livre.fnac.com/a1202291/Amelie-Nothomb-Le-sabotage-amoureux  . A slip of a book , but perhaps the most memorable thing I've read thus far this year.

Thanks to his gross abuses of presidential power symbolized by the Watergate scandal and to his own decision to record the details of his presidency on tape, Nixon seems destined to remain an object of fascination, amazement, scorn, and disgust for as long as historians pay attention to the American presidency. When the subject matter is their foreign policy, Nixon’s sidekick, Henry A. Kissinger, will be right there beside him.
