Intense, long, certain

Intense, long, certain, speedy, fruitful, pure-
Such marks in pleasures and in pains endure.
Such pleasures seek if private be they end:
if it be public, wide let them extend.
Such pains avoid, whichever be they view.
If pains must come, let them extend to few.

Jeremy Bentham
