Quotations from Stoic Philosophers like Marcus Aurelius, Seneca, Epictetus
|It is bad luck that this has happened to me.
||Be like the rocky headland on which the waves constantly break. It stands firm, and round it the seething waters are laid to rest. ’It is my bad luck that this has happened to me.’ No, you should rather say: ‘It is my good luck that, although this has happened to me, I can bear it without pain, neither crushed by the present nor fearful of the future.’"
