No man who is resolved to make the most of himself can spare time for personal contention.
Still less can he afford to take the consequences, including the vitiation of his temper and the
loss of self-control. Yield larger things to which you show no more than equal rights, and yield
lesser ones though clearly your own. Better give your path to a dog than be bitten by him in
contesting for the right. - Abraham Lincoln

IIUC he means to say that, The word אפיקורסות comes from Epicurus' philosophy in general, not these quotes in particular.
Small people talk about other people.
Average people talk about things
BIG PEOPLE TALK ABOUT IDEAS.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

The word אפיקורסות comes from Epicurus' philosophy in general

As does "epicure." It's just interesting to note that even someone whose "view of the goal of
human life [was] happiness, resulting from absence of physical pain and mental disturbance"
advocated curbing your ambitions regarding pleasures and possessions.

(Note: Those images are distorted. I was supposed to keep tweaking
their proportions, but for whatever reason, I ended up not doing so.)
