Epicurus, the Charvaka of the Greeks, bought a small piece of land and built a modest house called the Garden. He inscribed his living moto on a tablet and put it at the entrance to the Garden. for all comers to see. The inscription says:
When I showed this to my wife she embroidered it, framed it, and hung it at the entrance of our little abode. I would like to think this is the Charvaka creed, friendship, hospitality, pleasure and happiness ....
“Stranger, here you will do well to tarry; here our highest good is pleasure. The caretaker of that abode, a kindly host, will be ready for you; he will welcome you with bread, and serve you water also in abundance, with these words: ‘Have you not been well entertained? This garden does not whet your appetite; but quenches it."
another quote from Epicurus:
"Death is nothing to us, when we exist, death is not yet present, and when death is present, then we do not exist."
