A sage “masters wealth” - Epicurus

  • P 189 of Les Epicuriens


    Back then you were not a sage but now you are making efforts to become one. Replay in your spirit the life you led previously and the one you live presently, and ask yourself if back then you bore being sick like you do now, and if you mastered wealth like you master it now. - Epicurus, in an Epistle to Idomeneus

    "Please always remember my doctrines!" - Epicurus' last words

  • Thanks for including the cite, Hiram. It may be over time that it will make sense to move these to a special section on the fragments, but for the time being just including the cites as you are doing is a great help.
