"The Wisdom of Stoicism" 

   In the first century after Christ, two Roman philosophers gave voice to a bracing new way to see the world. One was a slave, the other an Emperor. Epictetus earned his freedom from slavery and became a philosophical teacher. A generation later, the emperor Marcus Aurelius, enflamed by his reading of Epictetus and every other philosophical text he could get his hands on, put his own personal spin on the wisdom we have come to know as Stoicism. At the heart of it is this notion – that we control almost none of the circumstances of our lives, but we have absolute autonomy over our reactions to them. For 2,000 years thinking men and women have been inspired by this philosophy of courage, forbearance, patience, acceptance, and freedom. Like Buddhism in the east, Stoicism offers clear, down to earth, and straightforward guidance for how to navigate this challenging life.
