“How appropriate that the gods put under our control only the most powerful ability that governs all the rest – the ability to make the right use of external appearances – and that they didn’t put anything else under our control. Was this simply because they weren’t willing to give us more? I think if it had been possible they would have given us more, but it was impossible.” – Epictetus, Discourses, 1.1.7-8
