Stoicism

The Modern Wimp’s Introduction to Stoicism

Maybe it’s a new concept for you or you’ve probably heard of it before (on facebook or some other social networking site).

“Contrary to common perception, being stoic doesn’t mean being emotionless. The real quality of Stoicism is far more masculine than not caring about anything – it’s about knowing when to care, when to be upset, and how to accept the inescapable with your head held higher than you thought possible.”

This site claims that it’s a male thing but don’t worry, it is just its theme : http://www.primermagazine.com/2010/live/introduction-to-stoicism
