Meditations: 5 Stoic Lessons to boost your Mental Strength

One

If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.

Two

Do not act as if you were going to live ten thousand years. Death hangs over you. While you live, while it is in your power, be good.

Three

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.

Four

Accept whatever comes to you woven in the pattern of your destiny, for what could more aptly fit your needs?

Five

Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one.
