Epicurus also said...

Of all the things which wisdom provides to make us entirely happy, much the greatest is the possession of friendship.





Death does not concern us, because as long as we exist, death is not here. And when it does come, we no longer exist.





Babies and animals are the mirrors of nature.





Luxurious food and drinks, in no way protect you from harm. Wealth beyond what is natural, is no more use than an overflowing container. Real value is not generated by theaters, and baths, perfumes or ointments, but by philosophy.





Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.
