"For my part..." - Epicureanism | Epic Swerve

"For my part..."

“For my part I find no meaning which I can attach to what is termed good, if I take away from it the pleasures obtained by taste, if I take away the pleasures which come from listening to music, if I take away too the charm derived by the eyes from the sight of figures in movement, or other pleasures by any of the senses in the whole man.” — Epicurus


This is from Cicero’s Tusculan Disputations, Book III.18.41.
