On Stoicism


“Epictetus says we must discover the missing art of assent and pay special attention to the sphere of our impulses—that they are subject to reservation, to the common good, and that they are in proportion to actual worth.”


The wisdom emphasized surrender and serving the common good, recognizing the limits of power and checking impulses. The principles of leaving room for unexpected events, prioritizing the common good, and being open to learning from all people, regardless of their status, are essential for individuals in positions of power or powerlessness.
