On Stoicism


“Hurry to your own ruling reason, to the reason of the Whole, and to your neighbor’s. To your own mind to make it just; to the mind of the Whole to remember your place in it; and to your neighbor’s mind to learn whether it’s ignorant or of sound knowledge—while recognizing it’s like yours.”


Our actions are ruled by forces that we do not take the time to evaluate, and this leads to regret. Our lives should be ruled by reason, rather than impulse, whim, mimicry, or unthinking habit.
