Chrysippus Quotes

Liberation: The Spiritual way of not giving a f*ck

If I had followed the multitude, I should not have studied philosophy.
Chrysippus (Quoted by Diogenes Laërtius in The Lives: Book 7)
The universe itself is God and the universal outpouring of its soul.
Chrysippus (Quoted by Cicero in De Natura Deorum)
Living virtuously is equal to living in accordance with one's experience of the actual course of nature
Chrysippus (Quoted by Diogenes Laërtius in The Lives: Book 7)
He who is running a race ought to endeavor and strive to the utmost of his ability to come off victor; but it is utterly wrong for him to trip up his competitor, or to push him aside. So in life it is not unfair for one to seek for himself what may accrue to his benefit; but it is not right to take it from another.
Chrysippus (Quoted by Cicero's De Officiis)
