ἀνέχου καί ἀπέχου –
ἀνέχου καί ἀπέχου can be translated into English as “bear and forebear” (my favorite), or also as “endure and renounce.” It is found attributed to Epictetus in a handful of sources.
Kevin was first exposed to Stoicism by a fortuitous twist of fate in a middle school Latin course (clearly one of the cool kids), where he came to be known by the name of ‘Epictetus’ after finding a copy of The Golden Sayings on his family bookshelf. While studying a variety of philosophies and religions since, he always felt a pull back to Epictetus and Marcus, which resulted in his further study and practice in the School.
In his free time, he competes in Scottish Highland games, writes, does graphics design, and studies philosophy.
Kevin is a graduate of the SES Course and the Marcus Aurelius School, a Fellow of the College of Stoic Philosophers, and Tutor at the MA School; and was a student of the now-defunct Chrysippus School of Theology.
