"And yet, wouldn’t everyone agree that it is much better ... to train himself to want little instead of struggling to become wealthy? And instead of exerting effort to gain fame, shouldn’t a person strive to overcome his thirst for it? ... Won’t we, therefore, be willing to endure pain in order to gain complete happiness? For there is no reason for becoming good than to be happy and live a blessed life thereafter."
Musonius Rufus
