Epictetus’ Wisdom


Epictetus, a prominent Stoic philosopher of ancient Greece, offers profound insights on living a virtuous and fulfilling life. Sharing six of my favorite thoughts from Epictetus.

  • God has entrusted me with myself.
  • No man is free who is not master of himself.
  • The greater the difficulty the more glory in surmounting it. Skillful pilots gain their reputation from storms and tempests.
  • Wealth consists not in having great possessions but in having few wants.
  • He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.
  • People are not disturbed by things, but by the view they take of them.
