Epicurus, that good old Greek (who is thought to have lived from around 341 to around 270 B.C.), really seemed to be onto something, believing that “the greatest good was to seek modest pleasures in order to attain a state of tranquility and freedom from fear…as well as absence of bodily pain.” (see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epicureanism).
