“People are not disturbed by things, but by the view they take of them”

– Epictetus

Epictetus (AD 55 – 135) was a Greek Stoic philosopher. He was born a slave in present day Turkey and lived in Rome until his banishment, when he went to Greece for the rest of his life. His teachings were written down and published by his pupil Arrian in his Discourses and Enchiridion.
