“A worse-than-deadly sneak undetectable extermination!”

~ Francis E. Dec on Chrysippus and his feloniously gangsterized donkey

Stoicism is a school of philosophy – that is, unlike a school of fish, it consists not of fish swimming around, but rather of philosophy doing so.

Figgin' great!

It is a philosophy of calm, rational self-control, as illustrated by Stoic philosopher Chrysippus, who got his donkey drunk and died laughing as it attempted to feed on figs. Thus proving that he himself could not control himself thus making him a hypocrite and the donkey said a super secret whisper to him when he was lying dying.
