Things to Think About - Man is disturbed not by things, but by the views he takes of them

Things to Think About
By Pepper de Callier

“Man is disturbed not by things, but by the views he takes of them.” Epictetus

It is often said that the true test of worth is the test of time. If that’s true, this 2,000 year old quote is surely one of the most valuable quotes I have collected in my more than 50 years of collecting.

Today, we call it perspective, but the truth remains the same.  It’s not the circumstances that we face that define us. It’s how we choose to react to them that tells the world who we are.

Good luck on your journey!
