A little something to read on Thanksgiving. Maybe after this, Ill leaf through Seneca, then watch Charlie Brown or something.One of the big three stoics, with the authors being Marcus Aurelius and Seneca. Epictetus recieved no formal schooling, and was a slave for most of his life. No self-pity. Instead, independence, fearlessness, and acceptance of death and suffering.

Self-rule and self-improvement. Forgiveness, acceptance, and understanding.Almost resembles some forms of Buddhism. In many ways, both are fatalistic, but this is not necessarily pessimism. Instead, there is peace.I typically find most self-help books to be injurious, maybe even dangerous in their mindless positivity. If it is not too imperious, I would recommend the Stoics and their friends instead, for their mindful tranquility.
