All desire happiness.       §41. If it be farther asked, what ’tis moves desire? I answer hap-
piness and that alone. Happiness and Misery are the names of two
extremes, the utmost bounds whereof we know not; ’tis what Eye
hath not seen, Ear hath not heard, nor hath it entred into the Heart of Man to
conceive
. 1 Cor. 2: 9. But of some degrees of both, we have very lively impres-
sions, made by several instances of Delight and Joy on the one side;
and Torment and Sorrow on the other; which, for shortness sake,
I shall comprehend under the names of Pleasure and Pain, there
being pleasure and pain of the Mind, as well as the Body: With him
is fullness of Joy, and Pleasure for evermore
: Ps. 16: 11. Or to speak truly, they
are all of the Mind; though some have their rise in the Mind from
Thought, others in the Body from certain modifications of Motion.
