What are the two types of pleasures on Epicurus view?

For Epicurus, pleasure is tied closely to satisfying one's desires. He distinguishes between two different types of pleasure: 'moving' pleasures and 'static' pleasures. ... The greatest destroyer of happiness, thinks Epicurus, is anxiety about the future, especially fear of the gods and fear of death.
