One day Zeno, a stoic philosopher in ancient Greece, caught a slave stealing from him. He ordered the slave to be whipped.

The slave, who was a bit of a philosopher himself, asked, “Zeno, how can you have me whipped? It was fated that I should steal.” 

Zeno responded, “And it was fated that you would be whipped.”
