MISUNDERSTANDING CONCERNING VIRTUE.  Whoever has known immorality in connection with pleasure, as is the case with a man who has a pleasure seeking youth behind him, imagines that virtue must be connected with absence of pleasure.  Whoever, on the contrary, has been much plagued by his passions and vices, longs to find in virtue peace and the soul's happiness.  Hence it is possible for two virtuous persons not to understand each other at all.
