Epictetus Quote – Having Few Wants

Epictetus, a stoic philosopher said that “Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants.”

We often find ourselves feeling the need to have great possessions, but if we have fewer wants, we are able to focus more deeply on achieving those wants. Because what is having great possessions when you are unable to achieve your goals? True wealth comes not from possessions, but from achieving our goals.
