Introduction to the Principles of Morals and Legislation

Jeremy Bentham

Chapter 10, Footnote #08
Hunger and thirst, strict meaning

Hunger and thirst, considered in the light of motives, import not so much the desire of a particular kind of pleasure, as the desire of removing a positive kind of pain. They do not extend to the desire of that kind of pleasure which depends on the choice of foods and liquors.
