Desire and happiness - wisdom of Epictetus




Desiring anything which is not in our control is a recipe for misery.


Desiring to achieve/make things which are in our control a recipe for fulfillment


Epictetus ~ #quote #wisdom vs folly

Such a quote feels ideal for this age of impatience. Surely everyone has time enough to install this in memory :)
