EPICURUS

are freedom from disturbance and self-sufficiency, and its originality and force consist in them quite as much as in his doctrine of pleasure.
PEACE is the chief fruit of righteousness. Live unseen
Self-sufficiency is the best wealth. We aim at selfsufficiency not that we may always lead a simple and frugal life, but that we may not be afraid of leading it.
If a little is not enough for a man, nothing is enough.

After this glimpse of the guiding principles of Epicurus, we turn to his view of the other ideals that attract mankind.

(a) Wealth
IF you live by nature you will never be poor ; if you live by what men think you will never be rich.
Judged by nature's laws great wealth is poverty.
He enjoys wealth most who needs it least.
Cheerful poverty is honourable.
Many on becoming rich have found in wealth not an escape from evil but a new and worse form of it.

(b) Power
IT is for the sake of security from mankind-not that kingship or power are natural goods-that some have wished for glory and fame, believing that in this way they would be safe against men.
Happiness comes, not by abundance of wealth, nor by material pomp, nor by office nor power, but by freedom from pain, by emotions in control, and by a disposition that recognizes the limits of nature.
