The Enchiridion, by Epictetus

NEW BOOK: I've printed The Enchiridion, a guide to living content with oneself and in harmony with nature. Written by a Roman philosopher in the second century A.D. Wikipedia him. I read this 1865 translation earlier in the year, found it meaningful, and I hope you will, too.

36 pages, Screen printed and letterpressed covers with xerox insides, edition of 100, for only $3.

"Men are disturbed not by things, but by the views which they take of things. Thus death is nothing terrible, else it would have appeared so to Socrates. But the terror consists in our notion of death, that it is terrible."
