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.

- Which is the same as saying through.
- The wise man therefore always holds in these matters.
- Power of choice and when nothing.
- Pains to avoid worse pains.
