Epicurean Living

“To be accustomed to simple and plain living is conducive to health and makes a man ready for the necessary tasks of life. It also makes us more ready for the enjoyment of luxury if at intervals we chance to meet with it, and it renders us fearless against fortune.”

– Epicurus, in Melchert, The Great Conversation: A Historical Introduction to Philosophy
