This Week in Stoic Fellowship

This Week in Stoic News

Ryan Holiday is the keynote speaker at this year's Stoicon. He's written two books on living according to Stoic principles - The Obstacle is the Way and Ego is the Enemy with another forthcoming - The Daily Stoic.

If you're new to Stoicism, he has a great Introduction to Stoicism article on his blog, Daily Stoic. Check it out!

Or - if video is more your thing, you can watch his TedTalk entitled Stoic Optimism.

This Week's Passage

Letters from a Stoic - Seneca

“There are more things, Lucilius, likely to frighten us than there are to crush us; we suffer more often in imagination than in reality. . . some things torment us more than they ought; some torment us before they ought; and some torment us when they ought not to torment us at all. We are in the habit of exaggerating, or imagining, or anticipating, sorrow."

Letters from a Stoic (XIII.4-5)
