The Golden Verses Of The Stoic

Seneca and Epictetus refer to the Golden Verses of Pythagoras , which happens to provide a good framework for developing a daily routine, bookended by morning and evening contemplative practices. Zeno of Citium , who founded Stoicism in 301 BC, expressed his doctrines in notoriously terse arguments and concise maxims.  However, Chrysippus, the third head of the Stoic school, wrote over 700 books fleshing these ideas out and adding complex arguments to support them. 

Two sentence horror stories

I have fallen in lust with "Two Sentence Horror Stories" The idea was started on a forum I tripped into. The thread began with a request for horror stories in two sentences. I loved the idea and really liked some of the stories which were posted.

Not even my eyes move when the scalpel cuts into my chest beginning the autopsy and sending brutal slices of pain through me.
I look to heaven, searching for God, and say, “You hit like a girl.”
