20 Stoic Truths Applied to Engineering

  1.  "It is impossible for a man to learn what he thinks he already knows." -Epictetus

  2.  "A gem cannot be polished without friction, nor a man without trials.” -Seneca

  3.  "First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do." -Epictetus

  4.  "No greater thing is created suddenly, any more than a bunch of grapes or a fig. If you tell me that you desire a fig, I answer you that there must be time. Let it first blossom, then bear fruit, then ripen."-Epictetus

  5. Difficulty shows what men are. Therefore when a difficulty falls upon you, remember that God, like a trainer of wrestlers, has matched you with a rough young man. Why? So that you may become an Olympic conqueror; but it is not accomplished without sweat.”-Epictetus
