It is an error to regard him as inhuman, as lacking in feeling. What he rejects is negative feeling: what he seeks to overcome is animal wrath, lust, hatred; what he affirms is positive feeling of the best kind--delicate, sensitive, aesthetic, compassionate, and refined. Thus his stoic imperturbability is not rigor mortis.
