• If anyone tells you that a certain person speaks ill of you, do not make excuses about what is said of you but answer, "He was ignorant of my other faults, else he would not have mentioned these alone

    Epictetus
  • Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants

    Epictetus
  • Don't explain your philosophy. Embody it

    Epictetus
  • There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power or our will

    Epictetus
  • Don't just say you have read books. Show that through them you have learned to think better, to be a more discriminating and reflective person. Books are the training weights of the mind. They are very helpful, but it would be a bad mistake to suppose that one has made progress simply by having internalized their contents." Translation by Sharon Lebell

    Epictetus
