January 14 - Equanimity

Sickness is a hindrance to the body, but not to the will, unless that yields.

Epictetus' Enchiridion, chap, ix

If a little oil be spilt, or a little wine stolen, say to yourself, 'This is the price of tranquility and peace; nothing is to be had without cost.

Epictetus' Enchiridion, chap. xii, sec. 2

Everything has two handles, and can be carried by one of them, but not by the other.

Epictetus' Enchiridion, chap. xliii.
