Perhaps not the most appropriate figure with whom to compare to Epicurus, but the quote sure does sound nice.
It might just be an "atavism" of my Christian upbringing, but Darth Vader's catharsis close to his death has turned him into a "good" guy in my perception although I am still horrified by his most evil action, the killing of all kids in Jedi school around the time when he changed from the initially good guy to become Darth Vader.
I have very much lost track of the twists and turns of who are the "good" and "bad" figures in the Star Wars movies, but I do very much like the idea of portraying Epicurus in unexpected ways, like this does!
