Marcus Aurelius

Marcus Aurelius

Roman emperor
He who flies from his master is a runaway; but the law is master, and he who breaks the law is a runaway. And he also who is grieved or angry or afraid, is dissatisfied because something has been or is or shall be of the things which are appointed by Him who rules all things, and He is Law, and assigns to every man what is fit. He then who fears or is grieved or is angry is a runaway.More Marcus Aurelius quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Now departure from the world of men is nothing to fear, if gods exist: because they would not involve you in any harm. If they do not exist, or if they have no care for humankind, then what is life to me in a world devoid of gods, or devoid of providence? But they do exist, and they do care for humankind: and they have put it absolutely in man's power to avoid falling into the true kinds of harm.More Marcus Aurelius quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
No man is happy who does not think himself so.More Marcus Aurelius quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Get rid of the judgement ... get rid of the 'I am hurt,' you are rid of the hurt itself.More Marcus Aurelius quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Am I doing anything? I do it with reference to the good of mankind. Does anything happen to me? I receive it and refer it to the gods, and the source of all things, from which all that happens is derived.More Marcus Aurelius quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
