Epictetus III, 15

Epictetus (circa 55-135 AD) tells how you should live if you want to become a great champion.

You have to be disciplined, eat under compulsion, stay away from cookies, you are obliged to train on fixed hours, in the heat and in the cold. You cannot drink cold water or wine when it occurs to you. You have to hand yourself over completely to your coach like to a doctor.
