With the àbstine” t-shirt, your free time will be accompanied by a sense of healthy fatalism. As valid today as ever, it was the motto of Greek philosopher, Epictetus (50 – 138 d. C.) that encapsulated the central idea of Stoic philosophy: keep from everything which is not within your power and accept what happens, since everything that happens is necessary and providential. The outcome of a training session, of a race, of an adventure, does not depend entirely on us. The almostthere community takes on sport and everyday life with this spirit in mind. Do your absolute best, in the most appropriate and suitable manner, but don’t set yourself impossible objectives. And always accept the outcome.
