Notes:
1: Treatment depends on the degree of anger and on the personality of the individual.
2: Anger affects all peoples and not just individuals but sometimes entire nations.
3: Despite all its terrible faults, many still believe anger to be a virtue.
4: Anger dominates one’s mind and removes one’s freedom; a man in the grip of anger acts like an animal.
5: To help avoid becoming angry, remind yourself frequently of its vices. How far more glorious it is to be impervious to insults than to revenge them.
6: “There is no greater proof of magnanimity than that nothing which befalls you should be able to move you to anger.” Avoid scattering your attention on many projects or taking on things beyond your ability, doing so leads to anger.
7: Be neither petty nor yet reckless in your projects. Before beginning, estimate your power and the power needed to complete it. Failure moves the hot blooded to anger, the cold blooded to sorrow.
8: Associate with good tempered people, we copy our habits from those around us. Avoid or check disputes before they become rooted and grow.
9: Cut out things that aggravate you, like law courts and politics. You can adjust your life such that you are less exposed to anger.
10: We don’t all take offense in the same way. Determine what your weak point is and guard against it.
11: Don’t go looking for things to take offense at. It is possible to turn offenses into something to be laughed at.
12: Many de..

Notes:
1: Anger is not above the control of reason
2: Some motions like shivering are beyond our control. But anger can be put to flight by wise maxims; for it is a voluntary defect of the mind.
3: Passions begin with impulses. We cannot avoid the impulse, but we can prevent them becoming fully fledged passions. It is a conscious choice to allow it to develop or not.
4: Impulses and emotions differ. Emotions are brought into existence by deliberate mental acts.
5: Anger if too readily indulged it can eventually develop into a permanent character trait of cruelty.
6: Joy at good actions is glorious, anger at bad actions is base. The Wise man will become irascible if always angered by bad deeds.
7: If you’re angry at evil deeds your mood will depend upon others, you will also never cease to be angry since there’s so much evil in the world
8: The mob is fraught with vices
9: If you want to be as angry as men’s crimes require, you will not be angry but go mad with rage.
10: People committing sin is to be expected, it’s foolish to be angry at things you expect. Be not an enemy to but an improver of sinners.
11: Anger is not to be praised for inducing fear. Fear affects feeble minds and there is nothing great in it.
12: It is possible to overcome anger. The mind can carry out whatever orders it gives itself.
13: There’s no need for us to defend anger. Get rid of it. The wise man does his work without the help of any evil passion, es..

The Enchiridion or Handbook of Epictetus is a short manual of Stoic ethical advice compiled by Arrian, a 2nd-century disciple of the Greek philosopher Epictetus.
Although the content is similar to the Discourses of Epictetus, it is not a summary of the Discourses but rather a compilation of practical precepts. Eschewing metaphysics, Arrian focused his attention on Epictetus's work applying philosophy in daily life. The primary theme is that one should accept what happens:

Moral letters to Lucilius
The Epistulae morales ad Lucilium is a collection of 124 letters which were written by Seneca the Younger at the end of his life, during his retirement, and written after he had worked for the Emperor Nero for fifteen years.

Translated by Richard Mott Gummere
https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Moral_letters_to_Lucilius/
(These Moral Letters are also the same letters which Tim Ferriss promotes in the Tao of Seneca)

Notes:
“I assume the spirit of a man who seeks where he may make trial of himself where he may show his worth:”
“I want something to overcome, something on which I may test my endurance”

Notes:
“Let not the eyes be dry when we have lost a friend, nor let them overflow. We may weep, but we must not wail.”
“For I have had them as if I should one day lose them; I have lost them as if I have them still”
“Fortune has taken away, but Fortune has given.”
“But will you tolerate men who are most careless of their friends, and then mourn them most abjectly, and do not love anyone unless they have lost him?”
“You have buried one whom you loved; look about for someone to love. It is better to replace your friend than to weep for him.”
“In former days I ought to have said: "My friend Serenus is younger than I; but what does that matter? He would naturally die after me, but he may precede me." It was just because I did not do this that I was unprepared when Fortune dealt me the sudden blow.”

“Let us therefore so set our minds in order that we may desire whatever is demanded of us by circumstances, and above all that we may reflect upon our end without sadness. “
“We must make ready for death before we make ready for life. Life is well enough furnished, but we are too greedy with regard to its furnishings; something always seems to us lacking, and will always seem lacking.”

“How small is the amount which will satisfy nature? A very little will send her away contented. It is not the natural hunger of our bellies that costs us dear, but our solicitous cravings”

The title "Planned Chaos" comes from Mises's description of the reality of central planning and socialism, whether of the national variety (Nazism) or the international variety (communism). Rather than create an orderly society, the attempt to central plan has precisely the opposite effect. By short-circuiting the price mechanism and forcing people into economic lives contrary to their own choosing, central planning destroys the capital base and creates economic randomness that eventually ends in killing prosperity.

(These Moral Letters are also the same letters which Tim Ferriss promotes in the Tao of Seneca)

Notes:
“Why is it that folly holds us with such an insistent grasp? It is, primarily, because we do not combat it strongly enough, because we do not struggle towards salvation with all our might; secondly, because we do not put sufficient trust in the discoveries of the wise, and do not drink in their words with open hearts; we approach this great problem in too trifling a spirit”

“What hinders us most of all is that we are too readily satisfied with ourselves”

“Thus it follows that we are unwilling to be reformed, just because we believe ourselves to be the best of men”

“Each man, according to his lot in life, is stultified by flattery”

“if you seek joy in the midst of cares, these objects for which you strive so eagerly, as if they would give you happiness and pleasure, are merely causes of grief.”

“applause and the popularity of enthusiastic approval which are gained, and atoned for, at the cost of great mental disquietude”

“Reflect, therefore, on this, that the effect of wisdom is a joy that is unbroken and continuous …You have, then, a reason for wishing to be wise, if the wise man is never deprived of joy. This joy springs only from the knowledge that you possess the virtues. None but the brave, the just, the self-restrained, can r..

“We must therefore rouse ourselves to action and busy ourselves with interests that are good, as often as we are in the grasp of an uncontrollable sluggishness.”

“You may therefore be sure that you are at peace with yourself, when no noise readies you, when no word shakes you out of yourself, whether it be of flattery or of threat, or merely an empty sound buzzing about you with unmeaning din”

“For the man who has fled from affairs and from men, who has been banished to seclusion by the unhappiness which his own desires have brought upon him, who cannot see his neighbour more happy than himself, who through fear has taken to concealment, like a frightened and sluggish animal. – this person is not living for himself he is living for his belly, his sleep, and his lust, – and that is the most shameful thing in the world. He who lives for no one does not necessarily live for himself.”

“The place where one lives, however, can contribute little towards tranquillity; it is the mind which must make everything agreeable to itself.”

I made this to both practice reading Spanish myself and provide something for learners of English or Spanish. Let me know if you find it useful and I will make more.
I realise I made a few mistakes in the Spanish reading, but that was to be expected :P

“For what else are you busied with except improving yourself every day, laying aside some error, and coming to understand that the faults which you attribute to circumstances are in yourself?”
“We blush to receive instruction in sound sense; but, by Heaven, if we think it base to seek a teacher of this art, we should also abandon any hope that so great a good could be instilled into us by mere chance.”
“Learning virtue means unlearning vice.”
“But although virtues, when admitted, cannot depart and are easy to guard, yet the first steps in the approach to them are toilsome, because it is characteristic of a weak and diseased mind to fear that which is unfamiliar.”

Notes:
“no one can live happily who has regard to himself alone and transforms everything into a question of his own utility; you must live for your neighbour, if you would live for yourself”
“…how bitter and perplexed it is for those who have put their trust in opinion rather than in nature.”
“I should deem your games of logic to be of some avail in relieving men's burdens, if you could first show me what part of these burdens they will relieve”

(These Moral Letters are also the same letters which Tim Ferriss promotes in the Tao of Seneca)

Notes:
“Kindly remember that he whom you call your slave sprang from the same stock, is smiled upon by the same skies, and on equal terms with yourself breathes, lives, and dies. It is just as possible for you to see in him a free-born man as for him to see in you a slave”

“Treat your inferiors as you would be treated by your betters”
“I propose to value them according to their character, and not according to their duties. Each man acquires his character for himself, but accident assigns his duties”
“That which annoys us does not necessarily injure us; but we are driven into wild rage by our luxurious lives, so that whatever does not answer our whims arouses our anger”
“they insist that they have received injuries, in order that they may inflict them”
“This, among other things, is a mark of good character: it forms its own judgments and abides by them”
