γυνὴ αὕτη: that woman there. So the Lat. ista femina.

εὐφροσύνας: pleasures, in strong contrast to εὐδαιμονίαν. Observe the elaborate antitheses in the two clauses, and note that Vice usurps the nobler word happiness, conceding to Virtue only pleasures as the reward of toil and self-denial.

ὁδόν (after βραχεῖαν): see on 21.
