Epicurus, fragment 70 Usener (tr. A.A. Long and D.N. Sedley):
We should honour rectitude and the virtues and suchlike things if they bring pleasure; but if not, we should say goodbye to them.

τιμητέον τὸ καλὸν καὶ τὰς ἀρετὰς καὶ τοιουτότροπα, ἐὰν ἡδονὴν παρασκευάζῃ· ἐὰν δὲ μὴ παρασκευάζῃ, χαίρειν ἐατέον.
