If I Were Epictetus….

If I were this ancient classic philosopher,

I would read and write, travel and explore and so much more.

I would study and research, listen and learn.

My goal would be to do no harm and to live the best I could within my own circumstances.

I would study psychology, anthropology, sociology and mathematics, physics and chemistry.

I would hike and bike and do all sorts of exercise.

I would spend time giving back in community.

If I were Epictetus, I would have done so much more,

Because I can read and write and study from hundreds of years of experience and because I was not a slave or lame or limited by my times and place in the world.
