Pleasure and Pain

Walking down the road, a man sees some stool and the stool is soft, and he thinks, "This is nasty." And a little further down the road, he again sees stool, but it has been in the sun for sometime, and becuase it is hard, the man thinks, " This is good." - But he does not stop to consider that hard or soft, stool is stool.

Pleasure or pain - they are the same.

In this material world, pleasure is simply hard stool. But we are thinking it is so nice.

- Srila Prabhupada to Brahmananda (Hare Krishna Explosion)
