"The teaching of Epicurus was upright and holy..."

“I myself believe, though my Stoic comrades would be unwilling to hear me say so, that the teaching of Epicurus was upright and holy, and even, if you examine it narrowly, stern.” — Seneca, Of a Happy Life, Book XIII


On the surface Seneca is full of slights against Epicureanism — but he sprinkles admiration throughout.
