The People In Motion® Philosophy

In Seneca’s essay on tranquillity, he uses the Greek word “Euthymia”, which he defines as “believing in yourself and trusting that you are on the right path, and not being in doubt by following the myriad footpaths of those wandering in every direction.”

“Euthymia” The People In Motion® Philosophy
Seneca, Moral Letters 95.57b-5.
