If you accomplish something good with hard work, the labor passes quickly, but the good endures; if you do something shameful in pursuit of pleasure, the pleasure passes quickly, but the shame endures.
~ Musonius Rufus
Why do we so often seek those quick fix pleasures nothing that we will feel guilty about it once the buzz wears off?
How much of a big night on the town will you remember in a few days time?
Compare this to the satisfaction that comes from putting the hard work into something that lasts?
I’m not saying that we can’t go out, relax, and let our hair down.
We just need to be aware that the quick rush may come at a cost.
