Stoicism has become part of modern dialect as a way to refer to stony calm in the face of pressure and adversity, but the term actually refers to a broad and thorough philosophical system, and 'Everyday Stoic' brings that original meaning to bear. The app, which is available for iOS, gives users a daily dose of stoic philosophy via quotations from some of the leading minds behind the belief system.

Stoicism is one of the lasting philosophies from the Ancient Greeks. It was influenced heavily by the teachings of Socrates, and its leading thinkers include the likes of Seneca and Epictetus. Later, in Roman times, it was adopted by the emperor Marcus Aurelius, and his writings on the subject influenced how it's perceived in the modern lexicon and in society's collective imagination.
