There are two things that must be rooted out in human beings - arrogant opinion and mistrust. Arrogant opinion expects that there is nothing further needed, and mistrust assumes that under the torrent of circumstances there can be no happiness.”
(Epictetus, Discourses, 3.14.8)
… and as such, we should expect to be required to change them.
Like we’ve mentioned here before, if we already think we’re awesome, we don’t move toward excellence. If we already think we’re wise, we don’t pursue wisdom… we think we’ve already got it.
That, dear readers, is a opinion we all need to change.
(See y’all tomorrow)
