EPICURUS

Epicurus was of Athenian birth, the son of a schoolmaster, and born abroad. But the setting in which we should see him is a house and garden at Athens, where from about his thirtyfifth year till his death at the age of seventy-one he lived a community life with friends and disciples, among them his three brothers, some slaves, and some women. Of his 300 treatises, on subjects as different as Love and Monarchy, Music and Diseases, only fragments remain. We can still read the will in which he left his house and garden to trustees for the use of his followers, and provided for meetings to be held in his memory on his birthday and on the twentieth of every month. His doctrines are expounded in three letters, preserved in the second-century life by Diogenes Laertes. The great poem of Lucretius is the longest extant exposition of Epicureanism : but the Epicurean temper is troubled and refracted in passing through the medium of the passionate personality of the Roman.

A Character Sketch of Epicurus
WE have evidence of his unsurpassed goodness ... in a host of friends too numerous to be reckoned by whole cities, m the disciples who were fascinated by his doctrines, in his dutifulness to his parents, his kindness to his brothers, his humanity to his slaves (shown in his will and in the fact that they lived with him), and generally in his universal benevolence. Diocles tells us that he lived on the cheapest and simplest food. The Epicureans, he says, were contented with half a pint of thin wine and their usual drink was water. Epicurus says in a letter: ` Send me some Cythnian cheese, so that I can dine luxuriously when I wish.'

Two Letters by Epicurus
(a) To a Child
I AND Pythocles and Hermarchus and Ctesippus reached Lampsacus quite well, and found there Themistas and our other friends well too. All's well, if you and your mummy are well, and if you always do what daddy and Matron say,
