Learn, discuss, and absorb the wisdom of our ancient Greek and Roman ancestors, little by little every day through selected quotes.
All quotes are curated from the works of three highly renowned Stoic philosophers: Epictetus, Seneca, and Marcus Aurelius.
Stoicism can give you improved clarity, focus, judgment, and empathy, and it can help you live a fuller life. Over time, you can become less encumbered by fear, hate, and anxiety, and you can enjoy deeper feelings of gratitude and understanding.
Keep at it every day and you will, as Seneca puts it, "end up far in advance of all mankind, and not far behind the gods themselves".
All Stoic quotes were selected with help by the thousands of readers in the Goodreads community.
Only the highest-rated quotes were selected, and each was meticulously formatted to be inclusive, accurate, and easy-to-read.
Come here once a day to read and digest the Stoic quote for that day. Browse previous and next days, or use the calendar to explore further.
