Indifference is a power

16 mins | Jun 6, 2016

Stoicism is not grim resolve but a way to wrest happiness from adversity "The truth is, indifference really is a power, selectively applied, and living in such a way is not only eminently possible, with a conscious adoption of certain attitudes, but facilitates a freer, more expansive, more adventurous mode of living. Joy and grief are still there, along with all the other emotions, but they are tempered – and, in their temperance, they are less tyrannical."
