Titus Lucretius Carus (c. 15 October 99 BC – c. 55 BC) was a Roman poet and philosopher. His only known work is the didactic philosophical poem De rerum natura about the tenets and philosophy of Epicureanism, and which is usually translated into English as On the Nature of Things. Lucretius has been credited with originating the concept of the three-age system which was formalised from 1834 by C. J. Thomsen.

Pleasant it is when over a great sea the winds trouble the waters to gaze from shore upon another's great tribulation, not because any man's troubles are a delectable joy but because to perceive you are free of them yourself is pleasant.
What is food to one man is bitter poison to others.
It is great wealth to a soul to live frugally with a contented mind.
And life is given to none freehold but it is leasehold for all.
The greatest wealth is to live content with little for there is never want where the mind is satisfied.
Life is one long struggle in the dark.
From the heart of the fountain of delight rises a jet of bitterness that tortures us among the very flowers.
So potent was religion in persuading to evil deeds.
