A stoic quote by Epictetus from Enchiridion 10

Provoked by the sight of a handsome man or a beautiful woman, you will discover within you the contrary power of self-restraint. Faced with pain, you will discover the power of endurance. If you are insulted, you will discover patience. In time, you will grow to be confident that there is not a single impression that you will not have the moral means to tolerate.

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