It is not he who reviles or strikes you who insults you, but your opinion that these things are insulting.


From the philosopher Catulus, never to be dismissive of a friend's accusation, even if it seems unreasonable, but to make every effort to restore the relationship to its normal condition.

Marcus Aurelius

It is the power of the mind to be unconquerable
