(p. 73 - the section on pleasure)
And now you ask in your heart, "How shall we distinguish that which is good in pleasure from that which in not good?"
Go to your fields and your gardens, and you shall learn that it is the pleasure of the bee to gather honey of the flower,
But it is also the pleasure of the flower to yield its honey to the bee.
For to the bee a flower is a fountain of life,
And to the flower a bee is a messenger of love,
And to both, bee and flower, the giving and the receiving of pleasure is a need and an ecstasy.
People of Orphalese, be in your pleasure like the flowers and the bees.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts, for they have their own thoughts.
