View And Do

“The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.” -Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

Every event has two handles, one by which it can be carried, and one by which it can’t. If your brother does you wrong, don’t grab it by his wronging, because this is the handle incapable of lifting it. Instead, use the other—that he is your brother, that you were raised together, and then you will have hold of the handle that carries.” -Epictetus

I love the Zen Buddhist Proverb, “How you do anything is how you do everything.”

But let’s add a dash of Stoicism to it, shall we? Here goes…

“How you view anything is how you will do anything which is how you will do everything.”
