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.

Emma is right, the term Feminism no longer popularly means what it meant before the twisting effects of the last few decades. In her speech she said, just before announcing HeForShe at the end of her speech, that "We are struggling for a uniting word..." I didn't really get that until today. That is the only trouble with Emma's speech. It is dense. She doesn't waist words.
