"...gird yourself to battle." - Epicureanism | Epic Swerve

"...gird yourself to battle."

“With eager judgement weigh things, and, if you see them true, lift your hands and yield, or, if it is false, gird yourself to battle.” — Lucretius

I love this quote from Lucretius’ On the Nature of Things. If you come across the truth, raise your hands in peace — but if you come across falsehood, gird yourself for battle! Gives me chills!
