“Be Thankful For What You’ve Got”

~ William DeVaughn

“Despite the popular notion that Stoicism means gritting your teeth in the face of discomfort – taking things ‘philosophically,’ as people commonly say – the central concept of Stoicism is to value only that which no one can take from you. Value, then, is found in things like virtue…For the Stoics, the goal is to maintain power over yourself. If you value something that can be taken away, you put yourself in the power of whoever can take it.”
