Once I wrote an article about wooden spoons and why they please people. Of all the things I ever wrote, it was this article that pleased the greatest number of people. It did not please as many people as the wooden spoon might please, but it did an excellent job for such a short article, and that pleased me. So: the people who read the article were pleased, and I was pleased that they were pleased. Still, I often hear that on one’s deathbed, one feels as though, no matter what, it wasn’t enough. This is the problem with pleasure.
