I can appreciate the song being sung by the recent string of articles and books which talk about the "Wisdom of psychopaths," but they are a little off key.   What they seem to applaud is mere stoicism.

Part three of my Monday morning series on how I apply some stoic principles to my day to day life.
I've been writing about the notecard in my wallet.  It contains a few short phrases that serve as philosophical reminders about how to live life in the day to day. The third reads, "Know thyself and then dress the part." I li...

"But I just want to be happy!"
