Self-sufficiency is the greatest of all wealth .Epicurus

No pleasure is in itself evil , but the things which produce certain pleasures entail annoyances many times greater than the pleasures themselves. (8)Epicurus

Natural justice is a symbol or expression of usefulness, to prevent one person from harming or being harmed by another. (31)Epicurus
