A stoic quote by Epictetus from Discourses II, 3.4-5

We know how to analyse arguments, and have the skill a person needs to evaluate competent logicians. But in life what do I do? What today I say is good tomorrow I will swear is bad. And the reason is that, compared to what I know about syllogisms, my knowledge and experience of life fall far behind.

A Sage is a theoretical perfect stoic - I can only attempt to act as I imagine he would act in my situation.
