Life is unpredictable – how do you react?

Life can be prove testing and unpredictable. This quote from Epictetus reminds us that how we react to what happens to us in life is important.

About Epictetus

Epictetus was a slave turned philosopher. He taught that philosophy is a way of life and not just a theoretical discipline. To Epictetus, all external events are determined by fate, and are thus beyond our control; we should accept whatever happens calmly and dispassionately. However, individuals are responsible for their own actions, which they can examine and control through rigorous self-discipline.
