Marcus Aurelius Antoninus (120-181) is counted among the Stoic philosophers. Stoicism was based on the idea that people or events affect (not effect) one only to the extent that one allows them to.
Thus his writing, like that of the other Stoics, is filled with manifestations of this notion. You'll have to be more specific about which one you seek.
In the absence of such specificity, I offer the observation of another Stoic, Epictetus:
"It is not the things that happen which concern men, but their opinion of the things that happen."
Shakespeare restated it as, "There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so."
