Get a daily quote from Stoicism's 3 principal leaders - Marcus Aurelius, Seneca, Epictetus, and others.
Stoicism doesnt concern itself with complicated theories about the world, but with helping us overcome destructive emotions and act on what can be acted upon. Its built for action, not endless debate.
It had three principal leaders. Marcus Aurelius, the emperor of the Roman Empire, the most powerful man on earth, sat down each day to write himself notes about restraint, compassion and humility. Epictetus endured the horrors of slavery to found his own school where he taught many of Romes greatest minds. Seneca, when Nero turned on him and demanded his suicide, could think only of comforting his wife and friends.
But it is not only those threeStoicism has been practiced by kings, presidents, artists, writers and entrepreneurs. Both historical and modern men illustrate Stoicism as a way of life.
