Epictetus’ philosophical quotes


The essence of philosophy is that we should live so that our happiness depends as little as possible on external causes.”

There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will.

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

Neither should a ship rely on one small anchor, nor should life rest on a single hope.

All philosophy lies in two words, sustain and abstain.

by Epictetus
