Luxurious food and drinks, in no way protect you from harm. Wealth beyond what is natural, is no more use than an overflowing container. Real value is not generated by theaters, and baths, perfumes or ointments, but by philosophy.Epicurus, from the esplanade wall at Oenoanda, now in Turkey, as recorded by Diogenes of Oenoanda
The Tetrapharmakos — the four-part cure — of Epicurus was “don’t fear god, don’t worry about death, what is good is easy to get, and what is terrible is easy to endure”, far from our modern meaning of epicureanism as “eat, drink, and be merry”. Lisa deGruyter will continue her series on spiritual practices of ancient Greek philosophies and how we might use them, this time on the Epicureans.
