Desire and happiness – wisdom of Epictetus

Desiring anything which is not in our control is a recipe for misery.


Desiring to achieve/make things which are in our control a recipe for fulfillment

Epictetus ~ #quote #wisdom vs folly

Such a quote feels ideal for this age of impatience. Surely everyone has time enough to install this in memory 🙂

 

The Quote:

If you are ever tempted to look for outside approval, realize that you have compromised your integrity. If you need a witness, be your own.
