"First say to yourself what you would be' and then do what you have to do."
Born a Greek slave in AD 55, Wikipedia describes the stoic as believing philosophy is more than a state of mind. It is a way of life. The authors there condensed his thought o the road to personal happiness and peace of mind to be, "Suffering arises from trying to control what is uncontrollable, or from neglecting what is within our power...human beings have a duty to care for all fellow humans."
The quote was found on the Diamond Bar City Hall Weekly News issued today by City Manager James DeStefano.
Wisdom is timeless. She is not bound to economic class, ethnic origin or political party. To live in a city which honors these words of a man born a slave- is priceless.
