Let me google that for you... oh look! sto·ic ˈstōik/ noun 1. a person who can endure pain or hardship without showing their feelings or complaining. 2. a member of the ancient philosophical school of Stoicism. adjective 1. another term for stoical. 2. of or belonging to the Stoics or their school of philosophy.
