This note addresses an emendation in Lucr. 3.295 originally proposed by R. Bentley and endorsed most recently by E.J. Kenney. I argue that the meaning of this and the preceding line has not been fully appreciated even by those commentators who (rightly) retain the MSS reading. To help elucidate the passage, I point to parallels in Philodemus of Gadara's De ira.
