h1 – 1914 translation 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?"

h2 – Section 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum", written by Cicero in 45 BC

"At vero eos et accusamus et iusto odio dignissimos ducimus qui blanditiis praesentium voluptatum deleniti atque corrupti quos dolores et quas molestias excepturi sint occaecati cupiditate non provident, similique sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollitia animi, id est laborum et dolorum fuga. Et harum quidem rerum facilis est et expedita distinctio. Nam libero tempore, cum soluta nobis est eligendi optio cumque nihil impedit quo minus id quod maxime placeat facere possimus, omnis voluptas assumenda est, omnis dolor repellendus. Temporibus autem quibusdam et aut officiis debitis aut rerum necessitatibus saepe eveniet ut et voluptates repudiandae sint et molestiae non recusandae. Itaque earum rerum hic tenetur a sapiente delectus, ut aut reiciendis voluptatibus maiores alias consequatur aut perferendis doloribus asperiores repellat."

h3 – 1914 translation by H. Rackham

"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."

The wise man – bold text – therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection.

No one rejects, dislikes – italic – 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

Some Bullets to help list items.

  • Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.
  • Pellentesque mollis ante a neque auctor dignissim.
  • Aliquam posuere mi non justo consectetur suscipit.
  • In vehicula ligula vestibulum mauris dignissim, eget ultrices sapien aliquet.
  • Donec maximus nunc pretium ipsum rutrum, ut commodo lorem elementum.
  • Sed lacinia augue nec volutpat vulputate.

Another way to list is the numbered.

Neque porro quisquam est qui dolorem ipsum quia dolor sit amet, consectetur, adipisci velit.

  1. Praesent cursus ligula ut turpis rhoncus ultrices.
  2. Duis dignissim sapien vitae fermentum malesuada.
  3. Curabitur at ante tincidunt, laoreet dui non, placerat odio.
  4. Vestibulum vitae arcu vel nunc accumsan ornare.
  5. Etiam at felis tincidunt, tempus ante ac, dictum arcu.
  6. Donec non mauris in felis vulputate blandit sit amet non nunc.

Vestibulum a lectus facilisis, volutpat massa id, molestie tortor. Duis ac varius mi, sit amet aliquet sapien. Nunc auctor volutpat tincidunt. Vivamus felis metus, sodales sed enim ut, varius molestie diam. Sed quis nisi nec augue efficitur porttitor a at tellus. Mauris interdum finibus dignissim.

Quotes are used to highlight a point.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Vestibulum vulputate libero quis magna convallis luctus.

Integer justo est, viverra in risus id, rhoncus venenatis neque. Sed luctus posuere elit non ullamcorper.

Maecenas gravida vitae nisi ut luctus.
