    the body which we share with the animals, and the Reason and Thought which we share with the Gods,
  • Minao94has quoted8 months ago
    Yet what faculties and powers you possess for attaining courage and greatness of heart, I can easily show you; what you have for upbraiding and accusation, it is for you to show me
  • Minao94has quoted8 months ago
    If you choose, you are free; if you choose, you need blame no man—accuse no man. All things will be at once according to your mind and according to the Mind of God
  • Azat Sagyndykovhas quoted2 years ago
    With ev­ery ac­ci­dent, ask your­self what abil­i­ties you have for mak­ing a proper use of it. If you see an at­trac­tive per­son, you will find that self-re­straint is the abil­ity you have against your de­sire. If you are in pain, you will find for­ti­tude. If you hear un­pleas­ant lan­guage, you will find pa­tience.
  • Philipphas quoted2 years ago
    With re­gard to what­ever ob­jects give you de­light, are use­ful, or are deeply loved, re­mem­ber to tell your­self of what gen­eral na­ture they are, be­gin­ning from the most in­signif­i­cant things.
  • Philipphas quoted2 years ago

    If any­one tells you that such a per­son speaks ill of you, don’t make ex­cuses about what is said of you, but an­swer: “He does not know my other faults, else he would not have men­tioned only these.”
  • Philipphas quotedlast year
    It is a mark of want of ge­nius to spend much time in things re­lat­ing to the body, as to be long in our ex­er­cises, in eat­ing and drink­ing, and in the dis­charge of other an­i­mal func­tions.
