"Heidi" takes us on a journey to the eventful childhood of a good-hearted girl from the Swiss Alps. A warm and loving story, full of touching moments, it reaches children and adults alike. It was written in 1880 and published in two parts: 1. Heidi's years of learning and travel. 2. Heidi makes use of what she has learned. This English translation from 1915 has "an especial flavor, that very quality of delight in mountain scenes, in mountain people and in child life generally, which is one o ...
 
‘I have written a blasphemous book’, said Melville when his novel was first published in 1851, ‘and I feel as spotless as the lamb’. Deeply subversive, in almost every way imaginable, Moby-Dick is a virtual, alternative bible – and as such, ripe for reinterpretation in this new world of new media. Out of Dominion was born its bastard child – or perhaps its immaculate conception – the Moby-Dick Big Read: an online version of Melville’s magisterial tome: each of its 135 chapters read out aloud ...
 
My name is Rabbi Matt Schneeweiss. I am, first and foremost, an Orthodox Jew. My primary area of focus is the teachings of Shlomo ha'Melech (King Solomon) in Mishlei (Proverbs) and Koheles (Ecclesiastes). I also consider myself to be a student of the Stoic masters: Epictetus, Seneca, and Marcus Aurelius. Over the past two decades I have been exploring the relationship between Judaism and Stoicism - where they overlap, where they differ, and how they complement each other. This year I started ...

Dr. Bee is the greatest saucerer in the land. Why his sauces are almost magical. Or so that is what his young apprentice, Clara, discovers when she stirs the super-duper, extra special Christmas honeycomb caramel sauce with an old spoon she finds hidden away behind a cupboard.
 
Today's episode is a sneak peak of what's in store for next season, when we switch from the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius to the Letters of Seneca. Today's reading is from the first letter of Seneca I ever read. It's been on my mind because of a conversation I had with a student about what it means to be a reader - something that Seneca and I have…
 
You will soon die and are not yet simple, untroubled, void of suspicion that anything from outside can hurt you, nor kindly disposed towards all, nor counting wisdom to consist only in just action. ---------- Epictetus - Discourses 3:10 (conclusion) Yirmiyahu 22:16 “He judged the case of the poor and the destitute, and then it was good. Is this not…
 
I recorded this episode yesterday morning, in anticipation of getting the first dose of my COVID-19 vaccine. It's a few minutes longer than the usual episode, but that's because it covers three texts: one from Marcus Aurelius, one from Epictetus, and one from Seneca. ---------- The sources cited in today's episode are too long to cite in their enti…
 
Contemplate continually all things coming to pass by change, and accustom yourself to think that the nature of the universe loves nothing so much as to change what is and to create new things in their likeness. For everything that exists is, in a way, the seed of what will come out of it, whereas you imagine seeds to be only those which are cast in…
 
All is ephemeral, both what remembers and what is remembered. ---------- Koheles 1:11 There is no memory of the earlier generations, and also the later generations that will be, there will not be a memory of them with those that will come later [yet]. Mahari Kara – Koheles 1:11 There is no memory of the earlier generations, for they have already di…
 
Do you ever feel lost when it comes to how to read a wordless book? I’m convinced that some of the very best picture books being published today are wordless. They invite us to slow down, predict what will come next, make connections, and linger over a good story, well-told. Today I’m excited to share some of the best ones with you, as well as a si…
 
Epictetus – Enchiridion Chapter 17 Remember that you are an actor in a play of such a kind as the playwright chooses: short, if he wants it short, long if he wants it long. If he wants you to play the part of a beggar, play even this part well; and so also for the parts of a disabled person, an administrator, or a private individual. For this is yo…
 
With your whole will surrender yourself to Clotho to spin your fate into whatever web of things she will. ---------- Plato: The Republic, Book X ... the distaff rotates on the knees of Necessity … and seated around, at equal interval, three, each upon a throne, daughters of Necessity, in white garments, with wreaths on their heads, Lachesis, Clotho…
 
Words familiar in olden times are now archaisms; so also the names of those whose praises were hymned in bygone days are now in a sense archaisms; Camillus, Caeso, Volesus, Dentatus; a little after, Scipio too and Cato; then also Augustus, then also Hadrian and Antoninus. For all things quickly fade and turn to fable, and quickly, too, utter oblivi…
 
Call to mind by way of example the time of Vespasian: you will see everything the same: men marrying, bringing up children, falling ill, dying, fighting, feasting, trading, farming, flattering, asserting themselves, suspecting, plotting, praying for another's death, murmuring at the present, lusting, heaping up riches, setting their heart on office…
 
Love the art which you were taught, set up your retirement in this, and pass through what is left of life as one who has committed all that is yours, with your whole heart, to God, making yourself neither despot nor servant to any man. ---------- Aurelius – 5:9 Don't be disgusted, don't give up, don't be impatient if you do not carry out entirely c…
 
Young John Maxwell and his dad live in a Nebraska soddy, two and one-half miles from the railroad crossing. But with a freezing rain storm and only a half hour to intercept the afternoon train, that two and one-half mile ride on their little black mare, Ozark, seems like an eternity to John who has to get help for his dying father.…
 
Here is a philosopher without a tunic, another without a book, another here half-naked. “I have no bread,” he says, “and still I abide by reason.” And I do not get the means of living out of my learning, and I abide by my reason. ---------- Epictetus – Enchiridion 23 If at any time it should happen that you turn to external things with the aim of p…
 
If he is a foreigner in the Universe who does not recognize the essence of the Universe, no less is he a foreigner, who does not recognize what comes to pass in it. A fugitive is he who runs away from the reasonable law of his City; a blind man, he who shuts the eye of the mind; a beggar, he who has need of another and has not all that is necessary…
 
A black character is an unmanly character, a stubborn character; bestial, childish, animalistic, foolish, crafty, ribald, fraudulent, tyrannical. ---------- Aurelius - Meditations 4:18 – How great a rest from labour he gains who does not look to what his neighbour says or does or thinks, but only to what he himself is doing, in order that exactly t…
 
Either an ordered universe or a chaotic medley heaped together mechanically but still an order; but can order subsist in you and disorder in the whole? And that, too, when all things are so distinguished and yet intermingled and sympathetic. ---------- Aurelius – Meditations 12:14-15 Either the necessity of destiny and an order none may transgress,…

Today we’re sharing all the details of this year’s…
 
4:26 – You have seen those things, look now at these: do not trouble yourself, make yourself simple. Does a man do wrong? He does wrong to himself. Has some chance befallen you? It is well; from Universal Nature, from the beginning, all that befalls has been apportioned for you and the thread was spun. The sum of the matter is this: life is short; …

Make trial for yourself how the life of the good man, too, fares well, of the man who is satisfied with his portion out of the whole and contented by his own just action and kind disposition. -------------------- Avos 4:1 Who is wealthy? One who is satisfied with his portion. Rambam – Moreh ha’Nevuchim 3:12 … the soul, when accustomed to superfluou…
 
Democritus has said: “Do few things, if you would enjoy tranquility.” May it not be better to do the necessary things and what the reason of a creature intended by Nature to be social prescribes, and as that reason prescribes? For this brings not only the tranquility from doing right but also from doing few things. For if one removes most of what w…
 
Everything is fitting for me, my Universe, which fits thy purpose. Nothing in thy good time is too early or too late for me; everything is fruit for me which thy seasons, Nature, bear; from thee, in thee, to thee are all things. The poet sings: 'Dear city of Cecrops', and will you not say: 'Dear city of God'? -------------------- Avos 2:4 [Rabban G…
 
Epictetus – Discourses 2.18 (excerpt) In the first place, do not allow yourself to be carried away by [the] intensity [of your impression]: but say, “Impression, wait for me a little. Let me see what you are, and what you represent. Let me test you.” Then, afterwards, do not allow it to draw you on by picturing what may come next, for if you do, it…

4:21 – You ask how, if souls continue to exist, the atmosphere has room for them from time eternal. But how does the ground have room for the bodies of those who for so long an age are buried in it? The answer is that, as on earth change and dissolution after a continuance for so long make room for other dead bodies, so in the atmosphere souls pass…

Have a happy Chanukah! -…
 
Epictetus – Enchiridion (Handbook) 3-4 With respect to any of those things you find attractive or useful or have a fondness for, recall to mind what kind of thing it is, beginning with the most trifling. So if you are fond of an earthenware pot, say, “I am fond of an earthenware pot.” Then you will not be upset if it gets broken … When you are abou…
 
4:20 – Everything in any way lovely is lovely of itself and terminates in itself, holding praise to be no part of itself. At all events, in no way does what is praised become better or worse. I say this also of what is commonly called lovely, for instance materials and works of art; and indeed what is there lacking at all to that which is truly lov…
 
4:19 - The man in a flutter for after-fame fails to picture to himself that each of those who remember him will himself also very shortly die, then again the man who succeeded him, until the whole remembrance is extinguished as it runs along a line of men who are kindled and then put out. And if you should assume that those who remember are immorta…

How great a rest from labor he gains who does not look to what his neighbor says or does or thinks, but only to what he himself is doing, in order that exactly this may be just and pure, or in accord with a good man's conduct. 'Do not look round at the depraved morals of others,' but run straight along the line without deviating from it. ----------…
 
Don't live as though you were going to live ten thousand years.
