10 great quotes from stoics

"These quotes highlight Stoic principles such as focusing on the present moment, accepting what is beyond our control, and cultivating virtues such as wisdom and gratitude."

I collaborated with chatGPT for this list and when I say collaborated I mean I asked it "what are 10 great quotes from stoics?"

FWIW, it took a relatively long time for it to create these, much more than writing entire episodes of NYPD Blue and Northern Exposure.

    1. "The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts." - Marcus Aurelius

    2. "It is not the man who has too little that is poor, but the one who craves more." - Seneca

    3. "You have power over your mind - not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength." - Marcus Aurelius

    4. "He who fears death will never do anything worthy of a living man." - Seneca

    5. "The first rule is to keep an untroubled spirit. The second is to look things in the face and know them for what they are." - Marcus Aurelius

    6. "No person has the power to have everything they want, but it is in their power not to want what they don't have, and to cheerfully put to good use what they do have." - Seneca

    7. "Waste no more time arguing about what a good person should be. Be one." - Marcus Aurelius

    8. "The greatest obstacle to living is expectancy, which hangs upon tomorrow and loses today. You are arranging what lies in Fortune's control, and abandoning what lies in yours." - Seneca

    10. "Do not indulge in dreams of having what you have not, but reckon up the chief of the blessings you do possess, and then thankfully remember how you would crave for them if they were not yours." - Marcus Aurelius
