Epictetus on Peace of Mind



The mind is rather like a bowl filled with water, and impressions are like a ray of light that falls on that water. When the water is disturbed, the ray of light gives the appearance of being disturbed, but that isn’t really the case.

Transfer judgements to things that lie within the sphere of choice, and I guarantee that you’ll preserve your peace of mind, regardless of what your circumstances may be. – Epictetus
