Wisdom of Marcus Aurelius

  •  If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.
  •  It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live.
  • Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one.
  • When you arise in the morning think of what a privilege it is to be alive, to think, to enjoy, to love ...
  • Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.
  • You have power over your mind - not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.
  • The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.
  • Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them. 
  • Be content to seem what you really are.
  • Anything in any way beautiful derives its beauty from itself and asks nothing beyond itself. Praise is no part of it, for nothing is made worse or better by praise.
  • And thou wilt give thyself relief, if thou doest every act of thy life as if it were the last.
