EPICURUS

the interest of a society, this enactment has no longer the essential character of justice.
When new circumstances arise in which the accepted ideas of justice cease to be in the interest of a society, what used to be just when it was in the interest of the members of the society ceases to be just when it is no longer in their interest.
The just man enjoys most peace, the unjust least.

Some Sayings
I NEVER wished to please the crowd. For the crowd does not approve my knowledge, and I know nothing of what the crowd approves.
For most men rest is stagnation and activity madness.
The laws are made for the wise-to preserve them, not from doing, but from suffering, wrong.
Praise must come from the world unsought : our business is to heal ourselves.
We must try to make to-day better than yesterday, so long as we are on our journey : when we reach its end, we must be equable and glad.
I have anticipated you, fortune, and fortified myself against all your secret assaults. We will not surrender ourselves to your mercy or to any other circumstance. But when fate leads us off, with a great gesture of contempt at life and at those who vainly cling to it, we will leave it with a loud cry of triumph, that we have lived well.
You tell me that the promptings of the flesh make you too freely disposed to sexual indulgence. If you are neither transgressing the laws nor infringing good customs, or injuring your neighbour, or damaging your health, or wasting your livelihood, you may follow your inclinations as you like. But it is impossible not to be subject to one of these conditions. Sexual indulgence never did any one any good : and a man is lucky if it did not injure him.
