Overview

Selections from the writings of the Greek Stoic philosopher Epictetus, compiled and translated by Hastings CrossleyWhat you shun enduring yourself, attempt not to impose on others. You shun slavery— beware of enslaving others! If you can endure to do that, one would think you had been once upon a time a slave yourself.

In truth we thank the Gods for that wherein we place our happiness.
