The way to happiness

The Diplo calendar 2016 realized by Stefano Baldi and Ed Gelbstein presents a selection of quotes from the Classical World for living and working better.

For the month of February the selected quotation is by Epictetus, Greek speaking Stoic philosopher. To Epictetus, all external events are determined by fate, and are thus beyond our control; we should accept whatever happens calmly and dispassionately.

There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will
