An Unfortified City

Epicurus, fragment 339 Usener (tr. C. Bailey):
Against all else it is possible to provide security, but as against death all of us mortals alike dwell in an unfortified city.

Πρὸς μὲν τἆλλα δυνατὸν ἀσφάλειαν πορίσασθαι, χάριν δὲ θανάτου πάντες ἄνθρωποι πόλιν ἀτείχιστον οἰκοῦμεν.
