The Banquet Of Life

Remember to conduct yourself as if at banquet. As something being passed around to you , reach out your hand and take a moderate helping. Does it pass you by?

Do not stop it. It has not come yet? Do not burn in desire for it, but wait until it arrives in front of you. Act this way with children, a spouse , toward position, with wealth – one day it will make you worthy of a banquet with the gods”

Epictetus, Enchiridion, 15
