FC: Life on Page | A book with so many quotes and pictures you think you're on Tumblr. | Zack Weinstein's

1: "Do not seek to have events happen as you want them to, but instead want them to happen as they do happen, and your life will go well." HH

2: We got more pleasure from making progress toward our goals than we do from achieving them

3: because, as Shakespeare said, “Joy’s soul lies in the doing.” HH

4: The whole universe is change and life itself is but what you deem it. (Marcus Aurelius)HH

5: In general, remember that it is we who torment, we who make difficulties for ourselves -Epictetus

6: you live as if you would live forever; the thought of human frailty never enters your head, you never notice how much of your time is already spent. Seneca

7: What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow. Our life is the creation of our mind. HH | Last Season | This season

8: If evolution is all about survival of the fittest, then why do people help each other so much? Darwin thought the answer was easy: Altruism evolves for the good of the group: There can be no doubt that a tribe including many members who, from possessing in a high degree the spirit of patriotism, fidelity, obedience, courage, and sympathy, were always ready to aid one another, and to sacrifice themselves for the common good would be victorious over most other tribes, and this would be natural selection. HH

9: Of all people only who are at leisure who make time for philosophy, only those are really alive. -Epictetus

10: “ is more civilized to make fun of life than to bewail it.” Seneca

12: It is not that we have a short time to live, but that we waste a lot of it. Seneca

13: Even if I lack the talent, I will not abandon the effort on that account.

14: “The part of life we really live is small.” For all the rest of existence is not life, but merely time. Seneca

15: What means can be found for dealing with them? one that ensures that we remain true to our nature, however other people see fit to behave -Epictetus

16: “Love and work are crucial for human happiness because, when done well, they draw us out of ourselves and into connection with people and projects beyond ourselves. Happiness comes from getting these connections right.” HH

17: Asking children to grow virtues, looking only within themselves for guidance, is like asking each one to invent a personal language - a pointless and isolating task if there is no community with whom to speak.HH

18: Freedom, you see, is having events go in accordance with our will, never contrary to -Epictetus

20: Finally, everybody agrees that no one pursuit can be successfully followed by a man who is preoccupied with many things -Seneca
