Teaser Tuesday (29 March)

Teaser Tuesday again...and for the first time in a long time, I'm almost playing by the rules! ;-)

Let us completely drive away foul habits, as we would base men who have done us great harm for a long time.
The possession of the greatest riches does not resolve the agitation of the soul or give birth to remarkable joy -- nor does the honor and admiration of the crowd, nor any other of those things arising from unlimited desires. 

p. 81 and 85, The Essential Epicurus. Both of these are from his Vatican Sayings.

  4. I particularly like "The possession of the greatest riches does not resolve the agitation of the soul or give birth to remarkable joy" So perhaps that's where "money doesn't buy happiness" originated. Er-hem.
