    The said truth is that it is the greatest happiness of the greatest number that is the measure of right and wrong.
    —Jeremy Bentham (1748–1832)

    The principle of asceticism never was, nor ever can be, consistently pursued by any living creature. Let but one tenth part of the inhabitants of the earth pursue it consistently, and in a day’s time they will have turned it into a Hell.
