Get a daily quote from Stoicism's 3 principal leaders - Marcus Aurelius, Seneca, Epictetus, and others.
Stoicism doesn’t concern itself with complicated theories about the world, but with helping us overcome destructive emotions and act on what can be acted upon. It’s built for action, not endless debate.
It had three principal leaders. Marcus Aurelius, the emperor of the Roman Empire, the most powerful man on earth, sat down each day to write himself notes about restraint, compassion and humility. Epictetus endured the horrors of slavery to found his own school where he taught many of Rome’s greatest minds. Seneca, when Nero turned on him and demanded his suicide, could think only of comforting his wife and friends.
But it is not only those three—Stoicism has been practiced by kings, presidents, artists, writers and entrepreneurs. Both historical and modern men illustrate Stoicism as a way of life.

Good except for notification problem
The app is clean and I enjoy the quotes. I’m having two problems with notifications, though (in version 1.0.4). First, even though I set a time when I’d like a notification, I still get two per day: one with the first part of the quote, and another generic notification that simply tells me to check out today’s quote. I’ll get the second notification even if I open the app after getting the first. It was annoying, so I turned all notifications off. Second, if you’re going to put some of the quote in the notification, then why not expand to the entire quote when I use 3D Touch to expand it?
Don’t force two notifications on me
I like that I can set a notification time. That way I can start my day with a quote. But the mandatory noon notification is annoying. By then I’ve already read it. I’d give five stars if it weren’t for this glaring, and judging by the other comments obviously ignored, problem.
The “time” of daily notification setting does not work. Regardless of alert time selected/chosen it alerts at Noon. Also no way to contact developer hence this review and hoping he/she reads it...
