    I see that my son is sick--but not that his life is at risk. Of course, since calling everything into doubt, I haven't established that anything exists besides me and God. The twining strands of fate wove both of them together: your own existence and the things that happen to you. While I have some control over my thoughts of these things, I do not make the things up: they have their own real and immutable natures.

    He clearly and distinctly perceives that the primary attribute of body is extension and that the primary qualities of body are size, shape, breadth, etc. He uses an example of this to clarify: When I have a mental image of a triangle, for example, I don't just understand that it is a figure bounded by three lines; I also "look at" the lines as though they were present to my mind's eye. Instead, he trusted in the grand scheme of things, knowing that logos had a plan for him, and right now his part in that plan was to let people waste his time with superficial arguments and small talk in court. From my great-grandfather, not to have frequented public schools, and to have had good teachers at home, and to know that on such things a man should spend liberally. In order to doubt or to think, there must be someone doing the doubting or thinking. That's what we do to ourselves - or try to - when we rebel against what happens to us

    And the things which conduce in any way to the commodity of life, and of which fortune gives an abundant supply, he used without arrogance and without excusing himself; so that when he had them, he enjoyed them without affectation, and when he had them not, he did not want them. Opposite to the Epicureans, who sought as much pleasure as they could in the here and now, for tomorrow they could die, the Stoics believed in the goodness of things, no matter how bad they were at any given time. In these misuses of freedom of choice lies the deprivation that accounts for error. He also derives a second proof for the existence of God from the fact that, while bodies are essentially extended, God is essentially existent.
