Thirdly, Zeno's assertion that ' our chief goal in life is to live in agreement with nature'. But there are difficulties with what nature might be understood as being and not being, for it to accord with a morally meaningful position. At least that appears to be a common contention of other thinkers of the time.
Fourthly, that 'ratio' rationality or reason is the only thing that can be called good. What we have control over and what we can be held responsible for are our inner moral impulses (presumably in accordance with Stoic ' nature'). Stoics should rely only on the inner as the compass of the soul and not by any external contingencies (the vagaries of life and 'fate').
