Epictetus: words of the messengers

If you know you are alive, I think one would never harbour any hatred for oneself.

Pride, no one would be able to endure your conceit.

These two elements we have in common: our bodies are like the animals, our minds are like the gods.

So don’t dwell in the body, a much nobler attitude comes from the mind.

Don’t set yourself to compete for meat, fight or flight, sit and stare…

But rather, dream, talk, laugh, and dance.

Love and be courageous and be prideful of who you are!
