“Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants.” 

Epictetus

True riches lie in contentment, not accumulation.

Epictetus, a Stoic philosopher, offers a profound insight into the nature of wealth. His perspective challenges the conventional notion that riches are about accumulating material goods. Instead, he suggests that true wealth comes from cultivating a sense of satisfaction and reducing desires. This approach encourages us to reassess what we consider valuable, promoting a life of simplicity and fulfillment over endless pursuit of material wealth. Epictetus’s wisdom teaches us that by managing our desires, we can achieve a richer and more content life.
