This book is an assemblage of some of the most insightful and enlightening ideas which have been extracted from the writings of four of the most influential figures in the philosophy of Stoicism: Seneca, Musonius Rufus, Epictetus, and Marcus Aurelius. It is hoped that through this amalgamation of Stoic thought the reader will come away with a clear and concise understanding of this most noble of philosophies.

Included in the books are the ideas put forward in the following works:

* On The Shortness of Life
* On Anger
* On The Happy Life
* On Peace of Mind

* The Discourses of Epictetus
* The Enchiridion

Marcus Aurelius
* Meditations

As a bonus, an Appendix has been included containing selected beliefs of the stoic philosophers categorized by subject matter (i.e. Pain and Suffering, Anger, etc.). This may assist the reader in comparing and contrasting stoic beliefs between the philosophers more easily.

    To be happy, then, we must learn to control the things we can, and to accept the things we cannot

    Life is long enough, and it has been given in sufficiently generous measure to allow the accomplishment of the greatest things if the whole of it is well invested
