The Best Stuff Is An Accidental Byproduct

In [Meditations] (https://store.dailystoic.com/pages/meditations) , Marcus Aurelius marvels at “nature’s inadvertence.” A baker, he writes, makes the dough, kneads it and then puts it in the oven. Then physics, then Nature takes over. “The way loaves of bread split open,” Marcus writes, “the ridges are just byproducts of the baking, and yet pleasing, somehow: they rouse our appetite without our knowing why.” Today is the last day you can order our premium leather-bound edition of [Meditations] (https://store.dailystoic.com/pages/meditations) to ensure holiday delivery! ✉️ Sign up for the Daily Stoic email: [https://dailystoic.com/dailyemail] (http://dailystoic.com/dailyemail) 🏛 Check out the [Daily Stoic Store] (https://store.dailystoic.com/) for Stoic inspired products, signed books, and more. 📱 Follow us: [Instagram] (https://www.instagram.com/dailystoic/) , [Twitter] (https://twitter.com/dailystoic) , [YouTube] (https://www.youtube.com/dailystoic) , [TikTok] (https://www.tiktok.com/@daily_stoic) , [Facebook] (https://www.facebook.com/dailystoic) See Privacy Policy at [https://art19.com/privacy] (https://art19.com/privacy) and California Privacy Notice at [https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info] (https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info) . ...

In the first of a two-part interview, Ryan speaks with one of the great non-fiction writers and historians of our time, Adam Hochschild, about how history can inform the push for change in the present, the civil rights trailblazers he examined in his book [Bury the Chains] (https://geni.us/Ck1Bt) (one of Ryan’s favorites), the links between the Stoic virtues and the United States’ anti-slavery movement, and more. Part two will be published on Saturday. Adam Hochschild is an American author, journalist, historian, and lecturer.

No One Can Take This Away | Why Seeking Out Challenges Will Change Your Life

“It is a vast kingdom to be able to cope without a kingdom,” [Seneca wrote in his play,Thyestes] (https://geni.us/iwneJ) . This was no mere word play. This was hard-won wisdom. No one can stop you from ruling over yourself. [It’s the best and the biggest and the strongest kingdom there is] (https://dailystoic.com/how-to-have-a-great-empire/) . --- Those who have never been tested should be pitied, Seneca said, because they don’t know what they’re capable of. To Marcus, philosophy was all about challenging yourself. It was about settling on words and reminders (epithets, he called them) to live up to, particularly in difficult situations. 🃏Get this deck and you’ll be able to test your mind and body and become a better you: [https://store.dailystoic.com/products...] (https://geni.us/u9F0Ux) ✉️ Sign up for the Daily Stoic email: [https://dailystoic.com/dailyemail] (http://dailystoic.com/dailyemail) 🏛 Check out the [Daily Stoic Store] (https://store.dailystoic.com/) for Stoic inspired products, signed books, and more. 📱 Follow us: [Instagram] (https://www.instagram.com/dailystoic/) , [Twitter] (https://twitter.com/dailystoic) , [YouTube] (https://www.youtube.com/dailystoic) , [TikTok] (https://www.tiktok.com/@daily_stoic) , [Facebook] (https://www.facebook.com/dailystoic) See Privacy Policy at [https://art19.com/privacy] (https://art19.com/privacy) and California Privacy Notice at [https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info] (https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info) . ...

What We Owe Each Other | Balance The Books Of Life Daily

The Roman Empire at that time was enormous. Jobs were scarce. Unemployment was high. Rapid expansion and economic stagnation had led to a sort of economic recession–one not unlike the one that looms globally right now. In response, the upper and ruling classes came together and instituted the Cura Annonae—the “care of grain.” The government distributed free grain to the poor and the suffering, ensuring that everyone had enough to eat, doing their Stoic duty to care for the common good. It’s an inspiring legacy that continues to this day–in fact, it’s one we’ve tried to not just speak about here at Daily Stoic but act on.

Ancient Wisdom for Modern Readers: How To Be Content - The Problem of Passion Pt. 1

For many people, happiness is associated with contentment: being around family, enjoying work, having enough. But what are the secrets to obtaining a contented life in a world of materialistic excess and personal pressures? One of Rome's greatest and most influential poets, Horace (65-8 BCE) shared his wisdom about this question in his writings. In [How to Be Content] (https://geni.us/1raY75) , Stephen Harrison, a leading authority on the poet, provides fresh, contemporary translations of poems from across Horace's works that continue to offer important lessons about the good life, friendship, love, and death. In this episode Ryan presents an excerpt of that book which specifically focuses on the idea of passion, and how the drive to obtain more and more can come between us and the good life. ✉️Sign up for the Daily Stoic email: [https://dailystoic.com/dailyemail] (http://dailystoic.com/dailyemail) Check out the [Daily Stoic Store] (https://store.dailystoic.com/) for Stoic inspired products, signed books, and more. 📱 Follow us: [Instagram] (https://www.instagram.com/dailystoic/) , [Twitter] (https://twitter.com/dailystoic) , [YouTube] (https://www.youtube.com/dailystoic) , [TikTok] (https://www.tiktok.com/@daily_stoic) , [Facebook] (https://www.facebook.com/dailystoic) See Privacy Policy at [https://art19.com/privacy] (https://art19.com/privacy) and California Privacy Notice at [https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info] (https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info) . ...

Drs. Edith Eger and Marianne Engle on Forgiving Over And Over Again

Ryan talks to mother-daughter duo Drs. Edith Enger and Marianne Engle about their work in clinical psychology, the power of spreading kindness in a world that often seems very cruel, letting go of the past through forgiveness, and more. A native of Hungary, Dr. Edith Eva Eger was just a teenager in 1944 when she experienced one of the worst evils the human race has ever known. As a Jew living in Nazi-occupied Eastern Europe, she and her family were sent to Auschwitz. Her parents were sent to the gas chambers, but Edith’s bravery kept her and her sister alive. Toward the end of the war Edith and other prisoners had been moved to Austria. On May 4, 1945 a young American soldier noticed her hand moving slightly amongst a number of dead bodies. He quickly summoned medical help and brought her back from the brink of death. Dr. Eger is a practicing psychologist and a specialist in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder. She is the author of the bestselling memoir [The Choice: Embrace the Possible] (https://geni.us/qGiv) and [The Gift: 12 Lessons to Save Your Life] (https://geni.us/JGsr) . Edith’s daughter, Dr. Marianne Engle, is a clinical psychologist, sports psychologist, and author of a sports psychology program for youth athletes and coaches. Her clients have included professional athletes and teams from the NBA, PGA, and the America’s Cup sailing race in addition to elite athletes in ice skating, baseball, tennis, soccer, water polo, squash, dressage, volleyball, etc. She is currently on the faculty of the NYU Langone Medical School. She has held faculty appointments at Harvard, MIT, and UCSD in addition to being a member of the World Economic Forum Global Agenda Council on Sport and Society. She is a board member of the NYU Sport and Society program. Marianne also has a long history as a food writer and cook. ✉️ Sign up for the Daily Stoic email: [https://dailystoic.com/dailyemail] (http://dailystoic.com/dailyemail) 🏛 Check out the [Daily Stoic Store] (https://store.dailystoic.com/) for Stoic inspired products, signed books, and more. 📱 Follow us: [Instagram] (https://www.instagram.com/dailystoic/) , [Twitter] (https://twitter.com/dailystoic) , [YouTube] (https://www.youtube.com/dailystoic) , [TikTok] (https://www.tiktok.com/@daily_stoic) , [Facebook] (https://www.facebook.com/dailystoic) See Privacy Policy at [https://art19.com/privacy] (https://art19.com/privacy) and California Privacy Notice at [https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info] (https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info) . ...

What To Do With What You’ve Been Given | Ask Daily Stoic

Yesterday we took a minute to think of all that we have to be grateful for, all the blessings life has bestowed on us–even if those things didn’t always appear to be blessings at the time. Well, today, on so called ‘Black Friday’ in America, instead of rushing out to get a deal on a flat-screen television, we should think about what to do with all that gratitude. It is our duty to help others. To serve others. To help people from going hungry. To alleviate someone’s worry and fear. To put food on their table.

Pity Is More Appropriate Than Anger

At the beginning of [Meditations] (https://geni.us/NHWnB) , Marcus Aurelius laments the kind of people he’s going to meet each day—the bitter, the stupid, the jealous, the petty. Throughout the book he mentions other undesirables—the shameless, the evil, the greedy, the ignorant, the manipulative. Today, we could add still others— racists, polluters, rage profiteers, trolls and on and on. These people are frustrating. They make the world less safe, less productive, less collaborative. They poison the common good. They destroy any semblance of common understanding or commonality, period. But [instead of getting angry at them] (https://geni.us/IOB808s) , try pity first. ✉️ Sign up for the Daily Stoic email: [https://dailystoic.com/dailyemail] (http://dailystoic.com/dailyemail) Check out the [Daily Stoic Store] (https://store.dailystoic.com/) for Stoic inspired products, signed books, and more. 📱 Follow us: [Instagram] (https://www.instagram.com/dailystoic/) , [Twitter] (https://twitter.com/dailystoic) , [YouTube] (https://www.youtube.com/dailystoic) , [TikTok] (https://www.tiktok.com/@daily_stoic) , [Facebook] (https://www.facebook.com/dailystoic) See Privacy Policy at [https://art19.com/privacy] (https://art19.com/privacy) and California Privacy Notice at [https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info] (https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info) . ...

Jennifer Baker on Stoicism in Academia

Ryan talks to Professor Jennifer Baker about her approach to teaching Stoicism, ethics, and political theory at the College of Charleston, what the Stoics might have said about driving a Mercedes instead of a Hyundai (or a Tesla), the challenges of teaching to today’s student population, and more.

She brings her academic training and passion for understanding ancient wisdom to the courses that she teaches on ethical and political theory, environmental ethics and philosophy, business ethics, bioethics, and American philosophy. Her research is on virtue ethics, and she looks to ancient ethical theories as positive examples of how ethics ought to be done today.

This Is The Day | How Stoicism Can Make You Happier

This is what we tell ourselves: Someday I will write my book. Someday I will travel abroad. Someday I will learn how to play guitar. But someday soon, you will no longer be able to say, “someday…” --- “A good character is the only guarantee of everlasting, carefree happiness.” – Seneca The Stoics believed in living a virtuous life, one with the potential to bring us personal happiness and fulfillment. And that’s one of the reasons a person may choose to live after their fashion. After all, what good is philosophy if it doesn’t ultimately bring us happiness? But in Stoic philosophy, it’s the pursuit of virtue and good character that allows us to get there. For the Stoic, the pursuit of virtue is the pursuit of happiness. If we can live virtuously, a good life will follow. --- If you want your own physical reminder of Memento Mori to create priority, humility, and appreciation for life, you can pick up one of our [MementoMorimedallions] (https://geni.us/h1BrR) to carry in your pocket everywhere you go.

The Last Words Of Marcus Aurelius | Practice Letting Go

It’s one of the [most haunting paintings] (https://geni.us/1vduJ5) you’ll ever see. More than 11 feet wide and 8 feet tall, painted in rich but dark oils, Eugene Delacroix (a student of the Stoics) captures Marcus Aurelius at the end of his life. A plague has devastated Rome. His troubled son stands in the wings, unlikely to rule well. Marcus has had a hard life, filled with adversity, not meeting, as one historian noted, “with the good fortune he deserved.” Yet he strived to do right and to be good. He escaped “imperialization” in his words, avoided being “Caesarified” and dyed purple by the power of his position. He kept the faith, kept the empire going, doing his best. And now, weak and frail, the end was here. He knew, as he would say to his bodyguard, that the sun was setting. To learn more about the life of Marcus Aurelius, pick up this in-depth biography of the man in [Lives of the Stoics] (https://store.dailystoic.com/products/lives-of-the-stoics-signed-edition) , which is included in the [new leather bound edition of the Gregory Hays translation of Meditations.] (https://geni.us/z2oAzdO) ✉️Sign up for the Daily Stoic email: [https://dailystoic.com/dailyemail] (http://dailystoic.com/dailyemail) Check out the [Daily Stoic Store] (https://store.dailystoic.com/) for Stoic inspired products, signed books, and more. 📱 Follow us: [Instagram] (https://www.instagram.com/dailystoic/) , [Twitter] (https://twitter.com/dailystoic) , [YouTube] (https://www.youtube.com/dailystoic) , [TikTok] (https://www.tiktok.com/@daily_stoic) , [Facebook] (https://www.facebook.com/dailystoic) See Privacy Policy at [https://art19.com/privacy] (https://art19.com/privacy) and California Privacy Notice at [https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info] (https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info) . ...

This Stoic Virtue Will Change Your Life

You’d think that the more powerful you are, the more freedom you’d have. The more money and success you have, the more you can do. You’d think that being a millionaire or being a celebrity or being the CEO would finally unshackle you from all the obnoxious and annoying constraints of being a ‘regular’ person… How wrong this is. How wrong this has always been. It was Eisenhower who said that freedom is really better described as the, “opportunity for self-discipline.” And you, you are lucky enough to live in a time of plenty that would have been unfathomable to history’s all-powerful kings. A time when nearly everything a person might want to do, they can, because there is no master standing over you. You are not an all-powerful sovereign, surely, but you have also never been more free. So now what? What will you do with this opportunity? What will you do with your freedom? Who will you make yourself become? ✉️ Want Stoic wisdom delivered to your inbox daily?

Time has a Way of Humbling Us

[In several of Seneca’s letters] (https://www.thepaintedporch.com/products/philosophy13?_pos=1&_sid=da053fa02&_ss=r) he speaks about the power of bloodletting as a medical practice. In one, he actually remarks—with some superiority—how earlier generations had not yet discovered bloodletting and suffered for it. [Marcus Aurelius] (https://dailystoic.com/marcus-aurelius/?utm_source=convertkit&utm_medium=convertkit&utm_campaign=what-if-wrong) hints at some other medical practices. He speaks of the treatment for ophthalmia—inflammation of the eye—and how doctors treated it with a bit of egg yolk. We also know that his doctor Galen gave Marcus opium for various pains and illnesses in old age. Needless to say, none of these treatments are accepted or prescribed anymore. It’s interesting that the Stoics, who were so good at extrapolating out from the past, didn’t take a lesson from this—that so much of what we are certain about today will be disproven in the future. The point is (and it’s a point well made in Chuck Klosterman’s book [But What If We’re Wrong?] (https://geni.us/xxkCY1) ) that we should always be questioning the status quo—and majority opinion.

Where Is Your Command Center? | Casey Neistat's 10 Stoic Practices (For Productivity)

We get all sorts of messages. From the world. From social media. From other people. From our bodies. The question–the great difficulty of life–is gathering, deciphering and deciding which of these messages to listen to and act on, and which to ignore. One of the best translators of the Stoics, Robin Waterfield (youmustread [his annotated edition ofMeditations] (https://www.thepaintedporch.com/products/meditations-the-annotated-edition?_pos=1&_sid=77a51e7d7&_ss=r) ), renders Marcus Aurelius’s use of the wordhegemonikonascommand center.Using this military metaphor, he says that we use our mental command center to receive all the messages of life and then send out our own messages to ourselves. And while YouTube pioneer and highly successful entrepreneur Casey Neistat was in Austin premiering his new film at SXSW Ryan Holiday caught up with him to find out how he applies Stoicism to his work and life. ✉️ Want Stoic wisdom delivered to your inbox daily?

The Virtue That Made Marcus Aurelius So Great

Marcus Aurelius did not come out of the womb a leader. Nor was he an emperor ‘by blood.’ In fact, when first told he was to be king, he wept—thinking of all the bad and failed kings of history. So how did he get from there to philosopher king? Book 1 of Meditations shows us. The first ten percent of the book—Debts and Lessons—thanks people who groomed him into one of history’s greatest leaders. He knew it—without his philosophy teachers and rhetoric teachers and, most importantly, his mentor Antoninus Pius, he wouldn’t have became who he became. In this episode Ryan Holiday recounts one of the greatest stories in human history and talks about how Antoninus Pius taught Marcus Aurelius the most important virtue of all. ✉️ Sign up for the Daily Stoic email: [https://dailystoic.com/dailyemail] (http://dailystoic.com/dailyemail) 🏛 Check out the [Daily Stoic Store] (https://store.dailystoic.com/) for Stoic inspired products, signed books, and more. 📱 Follow us: [Instagram] (https://www.instagram.com/dailystoic/) , [Twitter] (https://twitter.com/dailystoic) , [YouTube] (https://www.youtube.com/dailystoic) , [TikTok] (https://www.tiktok.com/@daily_stoic) , [Facebook] (https://www.facebook.com/dailystoic) See Privacy Policy at [https://art19.com/privacy] (https://art19.com/privacy) and California Privacy Notice at [https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info] (https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info) . ...

There’s Nothing Like This | Always The Same

The rockstar Warren Zevon had been on the top of the Billboard charts. He’d been on the cover of Rolling Stone. He’d been admired by other great artists and musicians like Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, and Tom Petty. The heights of fame were enjoyable, but it took a jarring diagnosis of terminal lung cancer to give Zevon the kind of perspective that only a *memento mori* moment can give.
