Stoicism-The Discourses of Epictetus

Stoicism-The Discourses of Epictetus – fragments

Be carefull not to be a slave among slaves, material goods will fill your house but not your heart.

No man who loves money, loves mankind. One who loves virtue loves mankind.

Give up all that you lust for, lust only for happiness.

If you wish to be good, first believe you are bad.

Spring must be here

Spring must be here.

It was 70 just the other day!

Now look, SNOW! No joy at the scene only bitching like an old man.

But I look in the mirror, must remember to remove it, for an old fat man looks back.

Easter is long gone, no more excuses, time to remember how to have fun.
