From the Stoa

How does one differentiate statues of Hadrian from statues of Marcus Aurelius?


Where I mistook the one for the other. Perhaps they are both Stoics?!

Where Alison Flood curates this tidbit:

“Be like the rocky headland on which the waves constantly break. It stands firm, and round it the seething waters are laid to rest. ‘It is my bad luck that this has happened to me.’ No, you should rather say: ‘It is my good luck that, although this has happened to me, I can bear it without pain, neither crushed by the present nor fearful of the future.’”

Where I am reminded of instructions

To be recited while walking a stoa

And so for day 2771
