On Stoicism

O

“This is the true athlete—the person in rigorous training against false impressions. Remain firm, you who suffer, don’t be kidnapped by your impressions! The struggle is great, the task divine—to gain mastery, freedom, happiness, and tranquillity.”

—EPICTETUS, DISCOURSES, 2.18.27–28

  • Thanks for the post! The struggle is real and every day we need to analyze what is within our realm of control and what is outside of it! Too many times we have the false impression that we can change that outside of our control!
