January 11 - Equanimity

Never is the soul grander than when she rises above all that is foreign to her, so as to find her peace in fearing nothing and her wealth in coveting nothing.
Seneca's Epistles,  lxxxvii, sec. 3

Liberty is not to be had gratis; if she be worth much to us, all things else will have little value.
Seneca's Epistles, civ, sec. 34

The grandest of empires is to rule one's self.
Seneca's Epistles, cxiii, sec. 30
