The Stoicism Book of Quotes compiles over 200 inspirational and illuminating quotations from the world’s greatest philosophers. These ancient words come to life in the present and help provide much-needed strength, wisdom, and resilience for all of life’s challenges.
Featuring words of wisdom from the greatest Greek and Roman Stoic philosophers including Seneca, Marcus Aurelius, Diogenes, Epictetus, Plato and more, The Stoicism Book of Quotes gives you a taste of what it means to live a stoic life.
Stoicism is a school of philosophy that believes virtue is based on knowledge and reason which enables you to rise above your emotions and allows you to control what you can and let go of what you cannot. The Stoic way of thinking allows you to thoughtfully process and accept situations while giving you the power to choose how you react, handle, and cope.
Many great leaders and thinkers of our time have sought guidance from Stoic philosophy, including George Washington, Immanuel Kant, Walt Whitman and Theodore Roosevelt, to name a few.
For many, Stoicism is a tool in the pursuit of self-mastery, perseverance, and wisdom. Living a more stoic life will give you the opportunity to live a mentally healthier, more balanced, and overall happier life.
