Marcus Aurelius

Marcus Aurelius

Roman emperor
Every moment think steadily as a Roman and a man to do what thou hast in hand with perfect and simple dignity, and feeling of affection, and freedom, and justice; and to give thyself relief from all other thoughts. And thou wilt give thyself relief, if thou doest every act of thy life as if it were the last, laying aside all carelessness and passionate aversion from the commands of reason, and all hypocrisy, and self-love, and discontent with the portion which has been given to thee.More Marcus Aurelius quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
And finally remember that nothing harms him who is really a citizen, which does not harm the state; nor yet does anything harm the state which does not harm law [order]; and of these things which are called misfortunes not one harms law. What then does not harm law does not harm either state or citizen.More Marcus Aurelius quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
All men are made one for another: either then teach them better or bear with them.More Marcus Aurelius quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Doth perfect beauty stand in need of praise at all? Nay; no more than law, no more than truth, no more than loving kindness, nor than modesty.More Marcus Aurelius quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Were you to live three thousand years, or even thirty thousand, remember that the sole life which a man can lose is that which he is living at the moment; and furthermore, that he can have no other life except the one he loses...More Marcus Aurelius quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
