One of the hardest tenets in Stoicism is trying not to care what your reputation is, be it good or bad.
You’d have to be nearly superhuman to be able to ignore that completely


Keep yourself therefore simple and good,pure and grave,friend of justice, religious,kind, affectionate,and strong for your proper work.
Marcus Aurelius


I was reading through the sermon on the mount in the book of Matthew, and there is so much Stoicism in it. Be not vain, no fancy clothes, simple foods and drink, give alms.
Same for Ecclesiastes. That whole book is an entire lesson on Stoicism.
And yet, why do so many people who consider themselves Christians not follow these rules??

Marcus Aurelius

soon you will forget the world and the world will forget you’

measure your life… it cannot contain too many distractions

It is common to find a man who is poor in respect to the end of his life and rich in empty fancies. For of the fools, none is satisfied with what he has, but grieved on what he has not.


St. Augustine was also a Stoic. His teachings are Stoic, but with a Christian bend to them. Still, they are good.
