OVERBOARD by Chip Dunham
As for the terms good and bad, they indicate no positive quality in things regarded in themselves, but are merely modes of thinking, or notions, which we form from the comparison of things with one another.  Thus one and the same thing can be good, bad, and indifferent.  For instance music is good for him who is melancholy, bad for him who mourns; for him that is deaf, it is neither good nor bad.  (Spinoza: Ethics Bk.IV, Preface)
