(Epictetus was a Greek sage and Stoic philosopher. He was born a slave, and lived in Rome until banishment when he went to Greece and he lived out the rest of his life. His teachings were noted down and published by his pupil Arrian.)

The quote:

“If anyone tells you that a certain person speaks ill of you, do not make excuses about what is said of you. But answer, ‘He was ignorant of my other faults, else he would not have mentioned these alone.’
