Let life happen by itself

Some more sayings of Epictetus.

Events do not just happen, but arrive by appointment.

It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.

Everything is changing. Not because it may no longer be, but rather, it may be what has not been until now.

There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things that are beyond the power of our will.

Happiness and freedom begin with a clear understanding of one principle — some things are within our control, and some things are not.

Make the best use of what is in your power, and take the rest as it happens.
