polytheist extractions

Epictetus, Golden Sayings 163

“Piety toward the gods, to be sure, consists chiefly in thinking rightly concerning them—that they are, and that they govern the universe with goodness and justice; and that thou thyself art appointed to obey them, and to submit under all circumstances that arise; acquiescing cheerfully in whatever may happen, sure it is brought to pass and accomplished by the most perfect understanding. Thus thou wilt never find fault with the gods, nor charge them with neglecting thee.” – Epictetus, Golden Sayings 163
