All bodily things which produce pleasure are necessary; and I call such those
which relate to food and other grosser appetities, in short such bodily things
as we assumed were the Object-matter of absence of Self-Control and of Perfected
Self-Mastery. The other class of objects are not necessary, but objects of
choice in themselves: I mean, for instance, victory, honour, wealth, and
such-like good or pleasant things. And those who are excessive in their liking

after all." "Oh! that would be terrible, indeed," said Miss Steele. "Dear little
soul, how I do love her!" "You are very kind," said Lady Middleton to Elinor;
"and as you really like the work, perhaps you will be as well pleased not to cut
in till another rubber, or will you take your chance now?" Elinor joyfully
profited by the first of these proposals, and thus by a little of that address
