The Manual

Bite-sized teachings from the Stoic philosophy school. A lot of overlap with previous stoic readings so I didn’t take many notes, a couple exerpts I liked:

You may fancy yourself a wrestler, then a gladiator, then an orator, then a philosopher—but never begin training in earnest. If so, you are a dabbler who samples many fields, but when the time comes to commit to one, you move on to the next.

Black and white thinking may seem powerful in speeches and debates, but real life is mostly gray areas.

Philosophy is for living, not just learning.
