Tao of the Day  
We enslave ourselves
whenever we make our happiness dependent on
something that's not within our power to achieve.

Epictetus!! That is the name of my test character on Rag.

For my part, 'achieve' most often meant 'seduce'. Which I sucked at, really hard, being a geek and all. And the guy is right on.
