A rational control of the passions and living in accordance with nature
Seems like little room for compassion to steer one's life.
I would say humaness should be experienced. Living a life such as this is the model for a Mr. Spock existence.
My mother was stoic. I often wonder if this was because of her birth year 1928, A few favorite sayings of hers were ‘gather ye rosebuds whilst ye may’ and ‘the world is so full of wonderful things we should all be as happy as kings’ . She would say “ we forget sometimes that people get sick and never recover, it is, after all ,a part of life”. She faced any hardship head on with verve, fairness, compassion and generosity were strong traits of hers.
