Quote

Disease is an impediment to the body, but not to the will, unless the will itself chooses. Lameness is an impediment to the leg, but not to the will. And add this reflection on the occasion of everything that happens; for you will find it an impediment to something else, but not to yourself.

 

-From The Enchridion. by Epitctetus, Chapter 9

I just finished reading the Enchiridion. As a start into Stoic philosophy, it was interesting. I have coming up soon on my reading list Marcus Aurelius' Mediations. One of the quotes that caught my interest: "Put an end once for all to this discussion of what a good man should be, and be one."

I'm starting to get into it too. I'm trying to read Seneca next. I think Stoicism is a very good philosophy for life.
