Epictetus told me: 'Prepare your mind. You should go.
Go to him, though maybe you will not find him at home;
Even if he does not expect you, does not accept.
Getting closer, think: in your face, his door will be slammed.
Go and think: he opens his door, but pays you no heed.
Think, you see: to somebody else, he carries his lips.
Think, I knew before you were born: you should go this road.
Leave behind your things. Just prepare your mind, calmly. Go!'
