This simple, yet elegant ceramic mug is adorned with an inspirational quote from the Greek philosopher Epictetus.

Epictetus was born into slavery in 55 AD, but grew up to become one of the leading figures in the philosophical tradition known as Stoicism.

Epictetus taught that philosophy is a way of life and not just a theoretical discipline.

For him, all external events are beyond our control and we should accept calmly and dispassionately whatever happens.

He also taught that individuals are responsible for their own actions, which they can examine and control through rigorous self-discipline.

Printed Quote:

“How long are you going to wait before you demand the best for yourself?”
