I may wish to be free from torture, but if the time comes for me to endure it, I'll wish to bear it courageously with bravery and honor. Wouldn't I prefer not to fall into war? But if war does befall me, I'll wish to carry nobly the wounds, starvation, and other necessities of war. Neither am I so crazy as to desire illness, but if i must suffer illness, but if I must suffer illness, I'll wish to do nothing rash or dishonorable. The point is not to wish these adversities, but for the virtue that makes adversities bearable.
— Seneca, Moral Letters, 67.4(resource) Ryan Holiday, The Daily Stoic: 366 Meditations on Wisdom
