3.5 stars

"Of all the means which are procured by wisdom to ensure happiness throughout the whole of life, by far the most important is the acquisition of friends."

Though my first work of Epicurus, this is too small, there's little here to comment upon. I'd like to explore more of his views on pleasure and justice. Hopefully Letter to Menoeceus, On the Nature of Things etc. would be more insightful.
