Everything that happens is either endurable or not. If it's endurable, then endure it. Stop complaining. If it's unendurable...then stop complaining. Your destruction will mean its end as well.
Nothing that goes on in anyone else's mind can harm you. Nor can the shifts and changes in the world around you. Then where is harm to be found? In your capacity to see it. Stop doing that and everything is fine. Let the part of you that makes that judgement keep quiet even if the body it's attached to is stabbed or burnt, or stinking withi pus, or consumed by cancer. (p 46)
42. All of us are working on the same project. Some consciously, with understanding; some without knowing it (I think this is what Heraclitus meant when he said that "those who sleep are also hard at work" – that they too collaborate in what happens.) Some of us work in one way, and some in others. And those who complain and try to obstruct and thwart things – they help as much as anyone. The world needs them as well. So make up your mind who you'll choose to work with. The force that directs all things will make good use of you regardless–will put you on its payroll and set you to work. But make sure it;'s not the job Chrysippus speakcs of: the bad line in the play, put there for laughs.
