Publisher's Summary

The fundamental principles of stoicism are that negative emotions come from bad judgment, and the essence of stoicism is to suppress these harmful emotions. We even say true joy is reached by goodness. Stoics described philosophy as a way of life that you can become a sage by.

A sage is someone who has attained excellence in the spiritual and the academic. Most thinkers (including Seneca) emphasized the idea that goodness accomplishes pleasure. For this to be accurate, then a sage would be immune to misfortune because misfortune creates unhappiness, and there is no unhappiness by goodness. It provides a strong sense of owning one's own destiny.

Marcus Aurelius cited. "Say yourself early in the morning: I shall face today ungrateful, evil, selfish, envious, uncharitable people. All these things have come upon them by hatred of the true good and the poor. I cannot be hurt by any of them since none people can damage me, nor can I anger or dislike my kinsman, since we have actually can be found in the world to interact."
