Four Rational Habits Of The Stoic Mind

"Our rational nature moves freely forward in its impressions when it:
1. Accepts nothing false or uncertain;
2. directs its impulses only to acts for the common good;
3. limits its desires and aversions only to what's in its own power;
4. embraces everything nature assigns it."
              -Marcus Aurelius, Mediations, 8.7
