  2. Mick Mulroy:

  3. H.L. Mencken:

    Man is never honestly the fatalist, nor even the stoic. He fights his fate, often desperately. He is forever entering bold exceptions to the rulings of the bench of gods. This fighting, no doubt, makes for human progress, for it favors the strong and the brave. It also makes for beauty, for lesser men try to escape from a hopeless and intolerable world by creating a more lovely one of their own.

  4. Mick Mulroy:

    I started to see that everything that made a Stoic a true Stoic was right there in a person who had never even heard of the concept or the philosophy.
