As for me, I would choose being sick over living in luxury, for being sick only harms the body, whereas luxury destroys both the body and the soul, causing weakness and incapacity in the body, and lack of control and cowardice in the soul. What's more, luxury breeds injustice because it also breeds greediness.
— Musonius Rufus, Lectures, 20.95.14-17, (resource) Ryan Holiday, The 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and the Art of Living
