Echoes through time: the price of equanimity

A drop of oil is spilled, a little wine is stolen; say to yourself, ‘Such is the price at which equanimity is bought; such is the price that one pays for peace of mind.’ For nothing can be acquired at no cost at all.

Epictetus (c.50 – 135), Handbook (12.2)
