's review

it was amazing

Easy to read, hard to do. "The first step to living wisely is to relinquish self-conceit." I'll get right on that...! I'm curious to read the original text by Epictetus now.

Quotes Tracy Liked

“Don't just say you have read books. Show that through them you have learned to think better, to be a more discriminating and reflective person. Books are the training weights of the mind. They are very helpful, but it would be a bad mistake to suppose that one has made progress simply by having internalized their contents.”
Epictetus, The Art of Living: The Classical Manual on Virtue, Happiness and Effectiveness
