Text Quotes
From forty to fifty a man is at heart either a stoic or a satyr  (Stoic Quotes) Every stoic was a stoic; but in Christendom where is the Christian?  (Stoic Quotes) Even the most stoic of men will be childlike at least once in a day  (Stoic Quotes) To become a stoic is to endorse the truthfulness of its world view and accept its prescription for how you ought to live, not just to like how it makes you feel  (Stoic Quotes) After a lifetime of nods, frowns and stoic smiles, they were both fluent in emotional shorthand  (Stoic Quotes) I think that is also something he [Barack Obama], in the beginning of his presidency, he couldn’t really explore and couldn’t show. He had to be almost a one-dimensional, stoic leader during that first election  (Stoic Quotes) I’m an atheist, I always thought, ‘This is it.’ If there is going to be a heaven, it should be on earth. I feel much happier than most people. I’m fairly stoic about death, but I’m not keen on dying if it’s going to be long and protracted. I don’t have dark nights of the soul, except occasionally. I’m such a little busy bee  (Stoic Quotes) In my early to mid-20s, a fear of confrontation made it difficult for me to end relationships in a mature or even quasi-sane way. Instead, I would hang on resentfully, praying that my doomed beau would end things first and spare me the displeasure. To add hindrance to hang-up, the men I chose were usually just as stoic as I was  (Stoic Quotes) I love ‘The Sportswriter’ by Richard Ford. Ford really captures for me the bittersweetness of the quietly suffering American man. It’s stoic, sad, and really beautiful.  (Stoic Quotes) Does Christ commend the famous ‘apathy’ of the Stoic or the Buddhist elimination of desire? Far from it. The issue is not just feeling or desire, but right feeling or desire, or being controlled by feeling or desire.  (Stoic Quotes) But then my mother, who’s a very selfless, stoic person from a family of Marines, would tell us that what was good for our father was good for us - he would make more money; therefore, we’d be able to get better educations.  (Stoic Quotes) Christianity is in no way a stoic faith. It fundamentally rejects the stiff upper lip school of thought.  (Stoic Quotes) You want to know how I’m feeling? Just look at me, and I’ll tell you how I’m feeling. Nothing is hidden. I’m all out there. I cry like a baby, I get upset, I stamp my feet. I’m not stoic.  (Stoic Quotes) I think I’m very stoic. Death and dying are things that I’m used to.  (Stoic Quotes) Courage isn’t simply a matter of leading charges: sometimes it consists in speaking up, sometimes in stoic silence, sometimes in forging ahead, sometimes in circumspection, and sometimes in nothing less than preserving our own humanity.  (Stoic Quotes) The Christian stoic who has crushed his feelings is only two-thirds of a man; an important third part has been repudiated. Holy feeling had an important place in the life of our Lord. “For the joy that was set before Him” He endured the cross and despised its shame. He pictured Himself crying, “Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost.”  (Stoic Quotes) Courage isn’t simply a matter of leading charges: sometimes it consists in speaking up, sometimes in stoic silence, sometimes in forging ahead, sometimes in circumspection, and sometimes in nothing less than preserving our own humanity  (Stoic Quotes) The essential American soul is hard, isolate, stoic, and a killer. It has never yet melted  (Stoic Quotes) The Christian is not a Stoic. Neither does he flee into a fantasy world that denies the reality of suffering  (Stoic Quotes) It wasn't even one of those stoic pimples that goes quietly when you pop it; this one was cystic and painful and had roots that seemed to extend into my brain  (Stoic Quotes) From here on out, there's just reality. I think that's what maturity is: a stoic response to endless reality. But then, what do I know?  (Stoic Quotes) Belief in God and a future life makes it possible to go through life with less of stoic courage than is needed by skeptics  (Stoic Quotes) An aristocratic culture does not advertise its emotions. In its forms of expression it is sober and reserved. Its general attitude is stoic  (Stoic Quotes) I practice stoic philosophy. As a human being, you may have emotions, but these don’t need to affect your soul. The two are not one  (Stoic Quotes) Normal people think we’re highly dependent and can’t live without ongoing support, but in fact there are times when we’re stoic heroes  (Stoic Quotes) A bleak, black book, it engenders awe and despair. I have read it in its entirety 4 1/2 times, each time finding its resonance and beauty so great as to demand another reading. As I read, I found myself devastated by the thoroughness of the book’s annihilating sensibility and revived by the beauty of its language, the complexity of its design, the melancholy, horror and stoic sympathy in its rendering of what we used to call the human condition  (Stoic Quotes) See, I don’t expect to win a prize for stoic control and dignity at mourning time. Death deserve tantrums. Beating back shocked indignation, kicks in the groin, stones, classified unacceptable, not to be tolerated, not to be wooed, not to be conspired with. Only then can music, dance, movies, plays, rap be about life. Only then can life be cherished and adored  (Stoic Quotes) So I should say that civilizations begin with religion and stoicism: they end with scepticism and unbelief, and the undisciplined pursuit of individual pleasure. A civilization is born stoic and dies epicurean  (Stoic Quotes) No doubt, much of the joy of a great romance is the moment when these stoic heroes crack open and reveal themselves to their heroines - the only women strong enough to match them.  (Stoic Quotes)
