"The chief task of the "philosopher" (love of wisdom)
is to determine what is up to as and what's not up to us"
Definition of stoicism: we don't control what happens to us
but we can control how we respond to what happens to us.
Everything that happens is an opportunity to respond with "4 virtues"
- Courage (bravery, endurance, fortitude)
- Justice (fairness, good conduct)
- Temperance (self discipline, right amount, obtain from things that don't matter)
- Wisdom (study, life-long education jurney)
