Metrodorus of Lampsacus (the younger)
ancient Greek Epicurean philosopher
- Occupavi te, Fortuna, atque cepi omnisque aditus tuos interclusi, ut ad me adspirare non posses.
- Mortale est omne mortalium bonum.
- Esse aliquam cognatam tristitiae voluptatem [...].
- [...] The source of happiness in ourselves [is] greater than that which arises from objects.
- Remember, O Menestratus, that, being a mortal endowed with a circumscribed life, thou hast in thy soul ascended, till thou hast seen endless time, and the infinity of things; and what is to be, and what has been.
