Ancient Inspiration:

“If a person gave your body to any stranger he met on his way, you would certainly be angry. And do you feel no shame in handing over your own mind to be confused and mystified by anyone who happens to verbally attack you?”

— Epictetus — Enchiridion 28, translated by Elizabeth Carter
