    Great line of the day: "For not only do I prefer the Epicureans, despised and rejected men, to the custodians of what is virtuous, but I also prove that the aforementioned followers of wisdom have followed not virtue but the shadow of virtue, not honor but vanity, not duty but vice, not wisdom but folly; for they would have done better had they worked for the cause of pleasure, if they did not indeed do so." On Pleasure / On The True and The False Good - Lorenzo Valla
