Epicurean Musings

Death, being merely an absence of life,
cannot be 'an evil', though it may be regretted
by those solipsists who think they have a claim on,
or some sort of right to expect, The Future,
and by those few to whom a death
will cause misery and deprivation.
Knowledge of death is also, surely,
an important part of human existence.

My own death, being an easy absence of my life,
is an event to which I am not even now averse,
though my life (especially my love-life)
currently gets better as I get older.
When it starts to get appreciably worse
I will regard it, not death, as an eradicable curse.
