Zeno of Citium
The founder of the Stoic school of philosophy, Zeno was heavily influenced by the Cynics.
Initially a wealthy merchant, he became interested in philosophy during a trip to Athens and grew to be a highly regarded teacher.
Stoicism is a philosophy dedicated to helping its students live the good life. The ancient Stoics believed the universe had a rational, perhaps divine, structure to it and held that while the laws of physics dictated what happened externally, we were still free to choose how we would react to it. They argued that a rational man should strive to live virtuously, and devoted a great deal of time to the question of ethics.
Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.
