October 10th: Reverence and justice
Ryan Holiday, The 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and the Art of Living
Aulus Gellius relates that Epictetus once said, "If anyone would take two words to heart and take pains to govern and watch over themselves by them they will live an impeccable and immensely tranquil life. The two words are: persist and resist." That's a great advice. But what principles should determine what we persist in and what we ought to resist?
Marcus supplies that answer: reverence and justice. In other words, virtue.
