Words of Wisdom #32

“These arguments are not conclusive: <<I am richer than you, so I am better than you>>, <<I am more eloquent than you, so I am better than you>>. These are more conclusive: <<I am richer than you, so my possessions are greater than your>>, <<I am more eloquent than you, so my speech is better than your>>. But you are neither a possession, nor a speech”.

-Epictetus
