Epicurus Quote: “It is not an unbroken succession of drinking-bouts and of merrymaking, not sexual love, not the enjoyment of the fish and other delicacies of a luxurious table, which produce a pleasant life; it is sober reasoning, searching out the grounds of every choice and avoidance, and banishing those beliefs through which the greatest disturbances take possession of the soul.”

Epicurus Quote: “The conquest of fear, especially fear of unaccountable divine beings who meddle in nature at will, means a reduction in the sum total of human pain and suffering and opens the door to the calm acceptance of a new picture of the world – a world in which nature is autonomous and where there are ideal beings who never meddle.”
Epicurus Quote: “As if they were our own handiwork we place a high value on our characters.”

Epicurus Quote: “For a wrongdoer to be undetected is difficult; and for him to have confidence that his concealment will continue is impossible.”

Epicurus Quote: “If the gods listened to the prayers of men, all humankind would quickly perish since they constantly pray for many evils to befall one another.”
