There are things that are within our power, and things that fall outside our power. – Epictetus
The first paragraph of the “Manual” or called the “Handbook” written by Epictetus describes that there is a power that is within us. This power is not on the mere surface of brute physical strength as some may think about. Its not the power to outplay another in a game of wits in some sports match. No more it is the power to climb over some financial struggle. Perhaps a power to defeat evil in terms of good sounds seems abit fanatical, a bit over the top.
