Marcus Aurelius. I say: Fear not! Life still Leaves human effort scope. But, since life teems with ill, Nurse no extravagant hope: Because thou must not dream, thou need'st not then despair.
Matthew Arnold, Empedocles on Etna. T O many the frost of custom has made even these imposing annual ceremonies cold and lifeless. You have chosen your Genius, have passed beneath the Throne of Necessity, and with the voices of the fatal sisters still in your ears, will soon enter the plain of Forgetfulness and drink of the waters of its river.
Ere you are driven all manner of ways, like the souls in the tale of Er the Pamphylian, 2 it is my duty to say a few words of encouragement and to bid you, in the name of the Faculty, God-speed on your journey. In the first place, in the physician or surgeon no quality takes rank with imperturbability, and I propose for a few minutes to direct your attention to this essential bodily virtue.
Perhaps I may be able to give those of you, in. Imperturbability means coolness and presence of mind under all circumstances, calmness amid storm, clearness of judgment in moments of grave peril, immobility, impassiveness, or, to use an old and expressive word, phlegm.
It is the quality which is most appreciated by the laity though often misunderstood by them; and the physician who has the misfortune to be without it, who betrays indecision and worry, and who shows that he is flustered and flurried in ordinary emergencies, loses rapidly the confidence of his patients. In full development, as we see it in some of our older colleagues, it has the nature of a divine gift, a blessing to the possessor, a comfort to all who come in contact with him.
You should know it well, for there have been before you for years several striking illustrations, whose example has, I trust, made a deep impression. As imperturbability is largely a bodily endowment, I regret to say that there are those amongst you, who, owing to congenital defects, may never be able to acquire it. Education, however, will do much; and with practice and experience the majority of you may expect to attain to a fair measure. The first essential is to have your nerves well in hand.
Even under the most serious circumstances, the physician or surgeon who allows "his outward action to demonstrate the native act and figure of his heart in complement extern," who shows in his face the slightest alteration, expressive of anxiety or fear, has not his medullary centres under the highest control, and is liable to disaster at any moment.
I have spoken of this to you on many occasions. Far be it from me to urge you, ere Time has carved with his hours those fair brows, to quench on all occasions the blushes of ingenuous shame, but in dealing with your patients emergencies demanding these should certainly not arise, and at other times an inscrutable face may prove a fortune. In a true and perfect form, imperturbability is indissolubly associated with wide experience and an intimate knowledge of the varied aspects of disease.
With such advantages he is so equipped that no eventuality can disturb the mental equilibrium of the physician; the possibilities are always manifest, and the course of action clear. From its very nature this precious quality is liable to be misinterpreted, and the general accusation of hardness, so often brought against the profession, has here its foundation.
Now a certain measure of insensibility is not only an advantage, but a positive necessity in the exercise of a calm judgment, and in carrying out delicate operations. Keen sensibility is doubtless a virtue of high order, when it does not interfere with steadiness of hand or coolness of nerve; but for the practitioner in his working-day world, a callousness which thinks only of the good to be effected, and goes ahead regardless of smaller considerations, is the preferable quality.
Cultivate, then, gentlemen, such a judicious measure of obtuseness as will enable you to meet the exigencies of practice with firmness and courage, without, at the same time, hardening "the human heart by which we live.
Let me recall to your minds an incident related of that best of men and wisest of rulers, Antoninus Pius, who, as he lay dying, in his home at Loriam in Etruria, summed up the philosophy of life in the watchword, Aequanimitas. How difficult to attain, yet how necessary, in success as in failure! Natural temperament has much to do with its development, but a clear knowledge of our relation to our fellow-creatures and to the work of life is also indispensable.
One of the first essentials in securing a good-natured equanimity is not to expect too much of the people amongst whom you dwell. It must needs be that offences of this kind come, expect them, and do not be vexed. Curious, odd compounds are these fellow-creatures, at whose mercy you will be full of fads and eccentricities.
The similarity would be intolerable, if a happy egotism did not often render us forgetful of it. Hence the need of an infinite patience and of an ever-tender charity toward these fellow-creatures; have they not to exercise the same toward us?The virtue and value of equanimity is extolled and advocated by a number of major religions and ancient philosophies.
From Fr. Meaning "evenness of temper" in English is from s. Srila Prabhupada translates this as: Perform your duty equipoised, O Arjuna, abandoning all attachment to success or failure. Such equanimity is called yoga. In order to possess the virtue of Samatvamhe will also need to dedicate himself to steadying the mind every moment of his yoga career This is the term used by Patanjali in his Yoga Sutras 1. It is related to the idea of Vairagya or "dispassion". The Upeksha Yoga school foregrounds equanimity as the most important tenet of a yoga practice.
In many Yoga traditions, the virtue of equanimity can be one of the results attained through regular meditationcombined with regular practice of pranayamaasanas and mental disciplines, which clear the mind and bring one inexorably toward a state of health and balance. Neither a thought nor an emotion, it is rather the steady conscious realization of reality's transience.
It is the ground for wisdom and freedom and the protector of compassion and love. While some may think of equanimity as dry neutrality or cool aloofness, mature equanimity produces a radiance and warmth of being. The Buddha described a mind filled with equanimity as "abundant, exalted, immeasurable, without hostility and without ill-will.Calculus Made Easy - Silvanus P. Thompson - Mathematics - Sound Book - English - 1/6
Equanimity can also be cultivated through meditation  . Many Jewish thinkers highlight the importance of equanimity Menuhat ha-Nefesh or Yishuv ha-Da'at as a necessary foundation for moral and spiritual development.
Samuel Johnson defined equanimity as "evenness of mind, neither elated nor depressed. The waters of life flow over the self-will, and nothing is as elastic and irrepresible as the self-will of which it will be pressed upon and acquiesce to the incentives of resistance. His providence directs the vexatious shower of rain, and the ill-timed visitor, as certainly as it rules the issue of life and death. Subdue the self-will so that the weight of each affliction doesn't increase with any encouragement.
Christian forbearance is the realization that all of man's current experiences with sin will one day yield the positive results God intends. Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful. Immediate responses or knee-jerk responses are in direct opposition to forbearance, thus this isn't easy to master.
Commonly it is found that the fleshly mind and impulse is quicker response than the response of forbearance. The principles of forbearance is to be without hasty accusation, fault-finding Gal. We should not over-react to a brother's offense by making a "mountain out of a mole hill.This edition doesn't have a description yet. Can you add one?

Perhaps I may be able to give those of you, in whom it has not developed during the critical scenes of the past month, a hint or two of its importance, possibly a suggestion for its attainment. Imperturbability means coolness and presence of mind under all circumstances, calmness amid storm, clearness of judgment in moments of grave peril, immobility, impassiveness, or, to use an old and expressive word, phlegm.
It is the quality which is most appreciated by the laity though often misunderstood by them; and the physician who has the misfortune to be without it, who betrays indecision and worry, and who shows that he is flustered and flurried in ordinary emergencies, loses rapidly the confidence of his patients.

I was able to research hotel facilities such as car parking and kettles in rooms using trip advisor. That was really the only info missing to aid my planning.
I felt that we were in safe hands and that should we have needed advice and support, it would've been there. Thank you for an excellent service. The three of us had a memorable journey through Norway, stayed in great accomodation and enjoyed great breakfasts.
The travel was well spaced with plenty of time to move to the next step of the journey. Caitlin and Siim, United States Hidden Gems of Iceland, August 2016 I cannot say enough good things about our tour with Nordic Visitor. Barry and Carolyn, United States Express Iceland, August 2016 This was our first trip with Nordic Visitor and we expect that it won't be our last. Ingrid, United Kingdom Family Fun in South Iceland, August 2016 We were very impressed with the service.
Bobbi, United States Adventures Around Iceland, July 2016 This is not the type of vacation we normally take - we have generally gone on Caribbean Cruises, but our son was reading a brochure about Iceland and had heard some of his classmates from school talk about Iceland and he thought he'd like to do this for a summer vacation. Martin, United Kingdom Complete Iceland, July 2016 All the accommodation was of a high standard,the day tours were brilliant and very well guided and the food was of a high standard.

Ibrahim, Saudi Arabia Majestic Highlights of Norway, July 2016 Our tour was a self guided tour. Accommodations were top notch truly. As for the rental, I wanted a fancier, convertible car (to enjoy the weather), but after actually going there, I noticed not many are available or on the road.
The Toyota Yaris did the job wonderfully and did save me a lot of money (filled twice only despite the long distance I drove it). Sean, United States South and West in Detail, July 2016 This was our second trip using Nordic Visitor (Norway, 2015) and we feel the service has been consistently top notch.
