The philosophy: of Snufkin [pt.4] – Let go of control because ‘It’s exciting’

 

Why, what else but to revere and bless the gods; to do good to men; to bear and forebear and remember that whatsoever lies outside the bounds of this poor flesh and breath is none of yours, nor in your power.

– Marcus Aurelius, Meditations 5:33

This is my favourite ever Snufkin moment and could be my favourite ever moment in television history.

Just a minute… It’s so exciting… Things which you have no control over… You can see a storm coming towards you and you can’t do anything about it.’

SIDENOTE: In a couple weeks I’m also getting the picture of Snufkin there tattooed on my left arm, and what he says there on my right.
