Book Overview: Epictetus was born into slavery about 55 ce in the eastern outreaches of the Roman Empire.  Once freed, he established an influential school of Stoic philosophy, stressing that human beings cannot control life, only their responses to it.  By putting into practice the ninety-three witty, wise, and razor-sharp instructions that make up The Art of Living, readers learn to meet the challenges of everyday life successfully and to face life’s inevitable losses and disappointments with grace.

“A man of understanding, a man who understands himself and others, always feels compassion. Even if somebody is an enemy you have compassion toward him because a man of understanding can understand the viewpoint of the other also. He knows why the other feels as he feels, he knows why the other is angry, because he knows his own self, and in knowing that, he has known all others.” ~ Osho, The Book of Understanding
