"Check. Is there any way you can give me a passage or quote that backs up your claims, as I have done above? I see Epictetus talking about God all over the place but I am not reading what you are reading, obviously."

Steve Dallas replied to Tom Ellis's discussion Girlfriends lies and temper
"Has there been some lies that actually mattered, cause honestly, your examples rather suck as things to get your panties in a wad over. As far as her taking responsibility, like one of the others stated,  you have to stand your ground, remain…"

Bobby G Mullen replied to Bobby G Mullen's discussion Stoicism in the group Philosophers
"Roger that! God (no matter what name He is called by) directs the Universe by His Providence. That is a critical tenant of Stoicism, because what happens was meant to happen and is out of our control. People's personal philosophies may or may…"

"Your bump to this thread is most welcome. Looks like you're off to a good start.  I'd recommend adding a more substantial knife and a flashlight.  Maybe a Fenix E01 would work as an addition to your keychain. Cheers!"
