Indifference is a power

"Even though Stoicism is far more accessible, not only does it lack the exotic mystique of Eastern practice; it’s also regarded as a philosophy of merely breaking even while remaining determinedly impassive. What this attitude ignores is the promise proffered by Stoicism of lasting transcendence and imperturbable tranquility.

"It ignores gratitude, too. This is part of the tranquility, because it’s what makes the tranquility possible."
