If you lay violent hands on me, you’ll have my body, but my mind will remain with Stilpo.”
Zeno, quoted in Diogenes Laertius, Lives of the Eminent Philosophers, 7.1.24
Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, professional boxer wrongfully accused of homicide who spent 20 years in prison.
No matter what is happening to your body, your mind and spirit can remain philosophical and spiritual. Your mind is untouchable… and thus, so are you.
