The wise man is…

The wise man is free from all those disturbances of the soul which I describe as passions: his heart is full of tranquil calm for ever. And anyone who is self-controlled, unwavering, fearless, undistressed, the victim of no cravings or desires, must inevitably be happy.

from Cicero’s Discussions at Tusculum.
