Quote of the Week

"Remember from now on whenever something tends to make you unhappy, draw on this principle: 'This is no misfortune; but bearing with it bravely is a blessing.'"

- Roman Stoic philosopher Epictetus (2nd cent. AD), Fragment 28b, quoted in Marcus Aurelius' Meditations (4.49.6)

(Painting: "Portrait of a Philosopher," by Salvator Rosa, 17th cent.)
