Remark of the Week
“I by no means purchased the concept stoicism and epicureanism are rival philosophies. Whereas the largesse of the stereotypical epicurean is at odds with stoicism, so is it at odds with really embracing life’s pleasures – decadence with out mood turns into cloying and, in the end, unsatisfying. Fixed orgies (of any taste) act counter to the precise epicurean ultimate.
A real stoic, guided by discerning style, can grasp Epicurus’s purpose of modest and sustained pleasure greater than anybody who simply heaps indulgence upon indulgence as they grow to be stale.”
