Epictetus from The Handbook


Some bathe fast?
OK, they bathe fast.
Some drink too much?
OK, they drink too much.

Don’t judge unless

you know the other
completely. Otherwise,
you are going on only
the look of things.


One thought on “Epictetus from The Handbook

  1. So true. We often judge without having any real idea of what is happening in the lives of others, going only on our immediate reaction, how we are affected by viewing a situation. We need to move from an egocentric worldview to one that is much wider and just in scope.
