I bought 3 of this series now just read the 1st one. Epictetus was a slave but puts forth ideas that we enslave ourselves w/ our ideas.Being troubled by people who have wrong ideas about us , worries about things that might happen.Similar ideas he shares with zen about attachment & desires for their own sake can be a trap for the mind . This series looks to translate great ideas from philosophy in digestible portions.Great glossary & introduction

Bookwomble They look very buyable! 5d
Leftcoastzen Princeton University Press . Small hardcovers.I believe it is a great thought to get philosophy out there in more digestible bits.Some philosophy titles are still textbook like. 5d

Chrissyreadit @Bookzombie I LOVE earrings- but I was working with kids with behavior problems and toddlers- so I was always forgetting to put them back in, then I got sick on top of it and years later realized I miss wearing my earrings! So I highly recommend Re piercing ❤️ 3w

Daily philosophical advise for life that I lost interest in. I guess I‘m not Stoic.

This was an interesting read/listen. A lot of the general Stoic views of life and death gel with my own. They‘re also similar to Buddhism, which I was entertained that the both the author and myself are failed Buddhists (I always fall asleep at meditation time!😂😴). I think more there‘s a lot from this ancient school of thought that can be adapted for modern living, even if they‘re smaller tidbits based on common sense.

Book gifts are the best! I might need time to read this one but it came just in time for Bank Holiday weekend.

Just starting A Manual for Living, also called Enchiridion (or Manuel d‘Épictète in French). I found it second-hand last month and I really want to read more pre-modern classics. It‘s looking like the book is 10% Epictetus, 90% introduction and commentary. Looking forward to this.

🪞 For nowhere either with more quiet or more freedom from trouble does a man retire than into his own soul, particularly when he has within him such thoughts that by looking into them he is immediately in perfect tranquility.

⚖ The soul as a sphere in equilibrium: Not grasping at things beyond it or retreating inward. Not fragmenting outward, not sinking back on itself, but ablaze with light and looking at the truth, without and within.
