Top Gaius Musonius Rufus Quotes The Stoic Philosopher

Gaius Musonius Rufus ( was a Roman Stoic philosopher of the 1st century AD. He taught philosophy in Rome during the reign of Nero, as a consequence of which he was sent into exile in 65 AD, only returning to Rome under Galba. He was allowed to stay in Rome when Vespasian banished all the other philosophers from the city in 71 AD, although he was eventually banished anyway, only returning after Vespasian's death. A collection of extracts from his lectures still survives. He is also remembered for being the teacher of Epictetus.

Top Gaius Musonius Rufus Quotes


“In marriage there must be complete companionship and concern for each other on the part of both husband and wife, in health and in sickness and at all times, because they entered upon the marriage for this reason as well as to produce offspring. When such caring for one another is perfect, and the married couple provide it for one another, and each strives to outdo the other, then this is marriage as it ought to be and deserving of emulation, since it is a noble union. But when one partner looks to his own interests alone and neglects the other's, or (by Zeus) the other is so minded that he lives in the same house, but keeps his mind on what is outside it, and does not wish to pull together with his partner or to cooperate, then inevitably the union is destroyed, and although they live together their common interests fare badly, and either they finally get divorced from one another or they continue on in an existence that is worse than loneliness.”
― Musonius Rufus

“You will earn the respect of all if you begin by earning the respect of yourself. Don't expect to encourage good deeds in people conscious of your own misdeeds.”
― Musonius Rufus, Musonius Rufus on How to live

“Since every man dies, it is better to die with distinction than to live long.”
― Musonius Rufus

“We begin to lose our hesitation to do immoral things when we lose our hesitation to speak of them.”
― Gaius Musonius Rufus, Musonius Rufus on How to live

“To accept injury without a spirit of savage resentment-to show ourselves merciful toward those who wrong us-being a source of good hope to them-is characteristic of a benevolent and civilized way of life.”
― Musonius Rufus, Musonius Rufus on How to live

“If we were to measure what is good by how much pleasure it brings, nothing would be better than self-control- if we were to measure what is to be avoided by its pain, nothing would be more painful than lack of self-control”
― Musonius Rufus, Musonius Rufus on How to live

“Humanity must seek what is NOT simple and obvious using the simple and obvious.”
― Gaius Musonius Rufus, Musonius Rufus on How to live

“For mankind, evil is injustice and cruelty and indifference to a neighbour’s trouble, while virtue is brotherly love and goodness and justice and beneficence and concern for the welfare of your neighbour—with”
― Musonius Rufus, Musonius Rufus on How to live

“The best livelihood (particularly for the strong) is earning a living from the soil, whether you own your land or not. Many can support their families by farming land owned by the state or private landowners. Some even get rich through hard work with their own hands. The earth repays those who cultivate her, both justly and well , multiplying what she received – endowing in abundance all the necessities of life to anyone willing to work-and all this without violating your dignity or self-respect!”
― Musonius Rufus, Musonius Rufus on How to live

“Generally speaking, if you devote yourself to the life of philosophy, whilst tilling the land at the same time, I couldn’t compare it to any other way of life, nor would I prefer any other livelihood. It is living more in accord with nature-drawing your sustenance directly from the earth-the nurse and mother of us all-rather than from another source.”
― Musonius Rufus, Musonius Rufus on How to live


“Only by exhibiting actions in harmony with the sound words which he has received will anyone be helped by philosophy.”
― Musonius Rufus, Musonius Rufus: Lectures and Sayings

“Husband and wife should come together to craft a shared life, procreating children, seeing all things as shared between them-with nothing withheld or private to one another-not even their bodies. The birth of a human being which results from this union is, to be sure, something wonderful-but it isn't yet enough to account for the relationship of husband and wife-since even outside marriage it could result from any other sexual union ( just as in the case of animals). So, in marriage there must be, above all, perfect companionship and mutual love - both in sickness, health and under all conditions-it should be with desire for this (and children) that both entered upon marriage.”
― Musonius Rufus, Musonius Rufus on How to live

“For what does the man who accepts insult do that is wrong? It is the doer of wrong who puts themselves to shame-the sensible man wouldn't go to the law, since he wouldn't even consider that he had been insulted! Besides, to be annoyed or angered about such things would be petty-instead easily and silently bear what has happened, since this is appropriate for those whose purpose is to be noble-minded.”
― Musonius Rufus, Musonius Rufus on How to live

“Thus it appears that exile helps, rather than hinders body and spirit, by treating them better than they treat themselves.”
― Musonius Rufus, Musonius Rufus on How to live

“The home or the city doesn't depend on women or men alone, but on their union with each other-I find no other association more necessary nor more pleasant than that of men and women. For what man is as devoted to his friend as much as a loving wife is to her husband? What brother to a brother? What son to his parents? Who is as longed for as a husband by his wife, or a wife by her husband, when the other is away. Who would do more to lighten grief or increase joy or correct misfortune? Who judges everything to be shared-body, soul, and possessions-except man and wife? For these reasons, we all consider the love of man and wife to be the highest form of love-no reasonable mother or father would expect to entertain a deeper love for their own child than for the one joined to him in marriage.”
― Musonius Rufus, Musonius Rufus on How to live

“What good are gilded rooms or precious stones-fitted on the floor, inlaid in the walls, carried from great distances at the greatest expense? These things are pointless and unnecessary-without them isn't it possible to live healthy? Aren't they the source of constant trouble? Don't they cost vast sums of money that, through public and private charity, may have benefited many?”
― Musonius Rufus, Musonius Rufus on How to live

“Fear is the cause -not exile. To many people, even to most, despite living safely in their home city, fear of what seem to them the dire consequences of free speech is present. The courageous, in exile or at home, is fearless in the face of all such threats; for that reason, they have the courage to say what they think equally at home or in exile.”
― Musonius Rufus, Musonius Rufus on How to live

“It is widely held that we'll be despised by others if we don't try hard to hurt the first enemies we meet-this is the mark of cold-hearted, ignorant individuals. We say that the detestable person is recognized (among other things) by their inability to harm their enemies-actually, they are much more easily recognized by their inability to help them.”
― Musonius Rufus, Musonius Rufus on How to live

“To many people, even to most, despite living safely in their home city, fear of what seem to them the dire consequences of free speech is present. The courageous, in exile or at home, is fearless in the face of all such threats; for that reason they have got the courage to say what they think equally at home or in exile.”
― Musonius Rufus, Musonius Rufus on How to live

“Most of all, teachers shouldn't only be speakers of helpful words, but their actions should be consistent with them. The pupil's duty is to attend pro-actively to what is said, and to be on guard in case they accept something false without thinking.”
― Musonius Rufus, Musonius Rufus on How to live

“To help us to cheerfully endure those hardships which we may expect to suffer because of virtue and goodness, it is useful to recall what hardships people will endure for immoral reasons. Consider what lustful lovers undergo for the sake of evil desires-and how much exertion others expend for the sake of profit-how much suffering pursuing fame - bear in mind that they all submit to all kinds of toil and hardship voluntarily. It’s monstrous that they endure such things for no honourable reward, yet for the sake of the good (not only the avoidance of evil that wrecks our lives-also the gain of virtue) we're not ready to bear the slightest hardship.”
― Musonius Rufus, Musonius Rufus on How to live

“Also nourishing is food from domestic animals which we don’t slaughter. The most suitable of these foods, though, are the ones we can eat without cooking: fruits in season, certain vegetables, milk, cheese, and honeycombs. These foods also are the easiest to obtain. Even those foods that require cooking, including grains and some vegetables, are not unsuitable; all are proper food for a human being.”
― Musonius Rufus, Musonius Rufus: Lectures and Sayings

“Food from plants of the earth is natural for us, grains and those which though not cereals can nourish humans well-also food (other than meat) from domesticated animals. The most useful foods are those which can be used immediately without fire-since they are also most easily available-fruits in season, some green vegetables, milk, cheese, and honey.”
― Musonius Rufus, Musonius Rufus on How to live

“Just as plants receive nourishment for survival, not pleasure-for humans, food is the medicine of life. Therefore it is appropriate for us to eat for living, not pleasure, especially if we want to follow the wise words of Socrates, who said most men live to eat: I eat to live”
― Musonius Rufus, Musonius Rufus on How to live

“Thus whoever destroys human marriage destroys the home, the city-the whole human race.”
― Musonius Rufus, Musonius Rufus on How to live
