EPICURUS

be incomplete without a mention of what the master regarded as an important element in it. Friendship was part of the philosophy, as of the life, of Epicurus, and became a tradition of the school.

OF all the things that wisdom provides for life's happiness, the acquisition of friends is far the first. Friendship dances through the world, calling us to awake to happiness.
Look for friends to eat and drink with before you look for food and drink. To eat without a friend's company is the life of a lion or wolf.
The memory of a dead friend is sweet.
Noble minds are most concerned with wisdom and friendship : the one is a mortal, the other an immortal, blessing.

Epicurus told men to find their happiness in pleasure, but in those pleasures which are free from aynari aliquid-a bitter taste. But his work remained incomplete. For, whatever happiness men may find in the pursuit of pleasure, three great terrors remain to threaten human life-the fear of death, the fear of God, the fear of the next world. In their presence how can men enjoy pleasure with a quiet mind ? Death was certain. Orthodox religion spoke of a crowd of powerful and arbitrary deities, that made capricious inroads into life. And after life the poets told of an underworld where the dead were doomed to wander for ever, phantoms without blood and strength ; where Furies with bloody whips, snakes with fifty heads, the monstrous dog of Hell, and a thousand shapes of fear waited to recompense deliberate or thoughtless sin. How could man be happy with these swords hanging over his head ? We will see how Epicurus hoped to avert them and to defend life from the irruption of fear. The following passage shows his conception of God :

FIRST, regard God as an incorruptible and blessed creature, according to the universal conception of Him, and do not ascribe to Him any quality alien from incorruptibility
