The beautiful thing about Stoic philosophy is the advice contained within it is just as applicable today as it was when it was first written all those many years ago. We can learn a great deal from interpreting the advice provided and using it to our advantage as we go throughout our own lives.
Mislead yourself no longer; you will never read these notebooks again now, nor the annals of bygone Romans and Greeks, nor that choice selection of writings you have put by for your old age.

Philosophy in itself is beneficial but only to a degree. One must live in order to truly live out one’s philosophy. Observe your thoughts and philosophical wanderings and move to action, living what you have studied.
