The philosophy of Stoicism is steeped in actionable advice that we can apply to nearly all aspects of our lives. There are several that have been influential on me and my development over the years.
Today’s favorite quote comes from Epictetus and the Discourses curated by his student, Arrian.
Reason is not measured by size or height, but by principle.Epictetus. Discourses. Book I. Chapter 12.
WHY THIS QUOTE MATTERS TO ME
It all comes back to our principles, the ground-level of our thinking. Everything else is built from this and the quote is a great reminder to me about centering myself back to the foundations of reason.
