Epikurs Tetrapharmakos: Don’t fear god, / Don’t worry about death; / What is good is easy to get, and / What is terrible is easy to endure.

”A blessed and indestructible being has no trouble himself and brings no trouble upon any other being; so he is free from anger and partiality, for all such things imply weakness.”
- The First Epicurean Principal Doctrine
”Death is nothing to us; for that which has been dissolved into its elements experiences no sensations, and that which has no sensation is nothing to us.”
– The Second Epicurean Principal Doctrine

”The magnitude of pleasure reaches its limit in the removal of all pain. When such pleasure is present, so long as it is uninterrupted, there is no pain either of body or of mind or of both together.”
- The Third Epicurean Principal Doctrine
