Create all the happiness you are able to create; remove all the misery you are able to remove.
Happiness is a very pretty thing to feel, but very dry to talk about.
The said truth is that it is the greatest happiness of the greatest number that is the measure of right and wrong.
The principle of utility judges any action to be right by the tendency it appears to have to augment or diminish the happiness of the party whose interests are in question.. If that party be the community the happiness of the community, if a particular individual, the happiness of that individual.
