Nor any more youth or age than there is now;
And will never be any more perfection than there is now,
Nor any more heaven or hell than there is now.

What I point out to you is only that you shouldn’t allow yourselves to be confused by others. Act when you need to, without further hesitation or doubt. People today can’t do this—what is their affliction? Their affliction is in their lack of self-confidence. If you do not spontaneously trust yourself sufficiently, you will be in a frantic state, pursuing all sorts of objects and being changed by those objects, unable to be independent.

Here is the hardest thing for many people about adulthood: Staying awake. That is, resisting the somnambulance that will grow like weeds over any state of habitual life, excepting acute crises.

There is a gentle acceptance of what cannot be and will not be, which gradually transforms itself into the cultivation of, and pride in, what can be and is.

Wenn man dem ersten besten Gewalt über deinen Leib gäbe, das würde dich entrüsten. Scheust du dich denn nicht, jedem beliebigen, der dir begegnet, Gewalt über dein Gemüt zu geben, so daß er dasselbe erschüttern und in Unruhe versetzen kann, sobald er sich mit dir zankt?
— Epiktet, Enchiridion (28)
