We should look for someone to eat and drink with before looking for something to eat and drink, for dining alone is leading the life of a lion or wolf.–Epicurus, c. 300 BC
Epicurus was an ancient Greek philosopher and the founder of the school of philosophy called Epicureanism. Only a few fragments and letters remain of Epicurus’s 300 written works. Much of what is known about Epicurean philosophy derives from later followers and commentators.
