Lives of the Stoics

Ryan Holiday

Overview

From Cleanthes to Marcus Aurelius and Zeno, many Stoic philosophers went through extraordinarily trying times, but their perseverance and attitude towards life are what leave scholars with relevant models of how one ought to navigate hardship.

Authors Ryan Holiday and Stephen Hanselman are renowned publishers who also co-authored The Daily Stoic. While Holiday has written books like The Obstacle Is the Way and Ego is the Enemy, Hanselman works primarily as a bookseller, publisher, and literary agent.

Lives of the Stoics encompasses the various teachings and applications of philosophy that some of the most notable Stoics have gifted us.

Favorite Quote

"Cleanthes offered the analogy of the way that a trumpet focuses our breath into a brilliant sound… Obstacles and limitations—if responded to properly—create opportunities for beauty and excellence."

Ryan Holiday, Stephen Hanselman
