The Garden Is My Favorite Philosophy

"Go to his Garden some time and read the motto carved there: 'Dear Guest, here you will do well to tarry; here our highest good is pleasure.' The caretaker of that abode, a friendly host, will be ready for you; he will welcome you with barley-meal, and serve you water also in abundance, with these words: “Have you not been well entertained? This garden does not whet your appetite; but quenches it. Nor does it make you more thirsty with every drink; it slakes the thirst with a natural cure – a cure that requires no fee. It is with this type of pleasure that I have grown old.” (Seneca, Letters To Lucilius)
