"We must laugh and philosophize..." - Epicureanism | Epic Swerve

"We must laugh and philosophize..."

“We must laugh and philosophize and manage our households and look after our other affairs all at the same time.” — Epicurus

This quotation is from the Vatican Sayings (it’s #41). I like this one because it’s so down to earth. You can almost hear Epicurus saying it in response to the complaints of his compatriots. “Yes, yes, there is always much to do. We must do it all.”
