Socrates (in reply to Antipho, in defense of a philosophical way of life) said about eating:
“He who eats with most pleasure is he who least requires sauce.”
What does that mean in today’s self-help lingo?
“He/she who eats with most mindfulness (with most presence, with most savoring-of-the-moment) requires no dessert (or seconds).”
That’s my spin on this ancient pearl of wisdom: a philosophical tooth is a sweet tooth.
