“This is an evolving resource of Stoicism quotes on the various situations you’ll come across in life. The goal is to stick to the original texts as much as possible.”
“While this website and blog are the creation of Chris Fisher, the inspiration and encouragement came from a group of like-minded traditional Stoics from The Society of Epictetus. Traditional Stoics are not as numerous as modern Stoics on social media sites. As a result, our voice is often lost amidst numerous atheists and agnostics who place the divine and providential cosmos of Stoicism somewhere on the spectrum between “unnecessary” and “unreasonable.” Traditional Stoics consider the physics and theology of Stoicism an essential part of this philosophical way of life. Why? Because the ancient Stoics said it was essential and we have found that to be true in our individual practice. We believe this deeply spiritual, philosophical way of life is a legitimate option for many moderns seeking a rational form of spirituality that is not tied to organized religion. This website and the Traditional Stoicism Facebook group will provide resources to support traditional Stoics in their practice, and allow interested individuals to explore the traditional form of Stoicism for themselves. While many may find one of the recently formulated modern versions of Stoicism more to their liking, traditional Stoics attempt to follow, as much as possible, the same path toward excellence and happiness trod by Roman Senator, Seneca; freed slave turned philosopher, Epictetus; and Roman Emperor, Marcus Aurelius.”
“Stoicism Today is the official blog for the Modern Stoicism Organization. Patrick Ussher, its founding editor, started Stoicism Today in October 2012, following the “Stoicism and Its Modern Uses” workshop bringing academics and psychotherapists together at the University of Exeter. The very first Stoic Week, held in November 2012, was soon publicized and discussed in Stoicism Today. Since then, the blog has grown to become one of the main resources and forums for contemporary Stoicism on the internet.”
“The Stoicism On Fire podcast provides teaching and practical guidance for the practice of Traditional Stoicism as a philosophical way of life and rational form of spirituality. Traditional Stoicism attempts to bring the ancient practice of Stoicism into the twenty-first century without abandoning the deeply spiritual nature of this transformational philosophy.”
“Peter Adamson, Professor of Philosophy at the LMU in Munich and at King’s College London, takes listeners through the history of philosophy, “without any gaps.” The series looks at the ideas, lives and historical context of the major philosophers as well as the lesser-known figures of the tradition.”
“In these episodes, Peter considers the contribution of the main schools of the Hellenistic age: the Stoics, Epicureans, and Skeptics, and also discusses their reception in the Roman empire. Minor schools like the Cynics and Cyrenaics are also included. With interviews from James Warren, David Sedley, John Sellars, Raphael Woolf, A.A. Long and R.J. Hankinson.”
The relevant episodes are 60-68.
“Learning to be a practicing Stoic, in modern times, can present a significant challenge. Opinions differ, academics disagree and authors dispense pearls of Stoic wisdom, stripped of all of the rigour and depth of the ancient Art of living to satisfy a public accustomed to instant gratification.
In order to help you build your own ‘Art of Living,’ we are offering a free course to all who ask. The course is called ‘The Spirit of Stoic Serenity’. These lessons are adapted, with his gracious permission, from Keith Seddon’s book ‘Stoic Serenity: A Practical Course on Finding Inner Peace.’”
