    Hi, just a quick question, I'm hoping there will be others up writing essays at this time that might be able to help me.

    Basically, I have quoted Jeremy Bentham's greatest happiness blah blah blah in an essay, but I dont know what to reference it as, as I have no idea what book, if any, it is from - I just know the quote off hand.

    Help appreciated as I would like to finish this essay and go to bed fairly soonish

    Thankyou in advance!
