Wanting and Having (from Valerius Maximus)

     On my wall calendar (from Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers) in my office at school is a Latin quote for every day ("Sententia Latina as Diem"). Today's quote, from Valerius Maximus:

"Omnia . . . habet quī nihil concupīscit."

"Who desires nothing has everything."

      A perfect summation of Stoic teachings on desire and happiness.
