“Death, the most dreaded of all evils, is therefore of no concern to us; for while we exist death is not present, and when death is present we no longer exist.”
― Epicurus


In his last years he was afflicted with strangury (difficult and painful passage of urine), probably caused by enlargement of the prostate. He bore his illness with the utmost cheerfulness and, when on the verge of death and in great physical pain, wrote a letter in which he refers to his great happiness and joy.

Life is full of irony.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
