Marcus Aurelius on Life
"Remember that man lives only in the present, in this fleeting instant; all the rest of his life is either past and gone, or not yet revealed. This mortal life is a little thing, lived in a little corner of the earth..."
"To live each day as though one's last, never flustered, never apathetic, never attitudinizing - here is the perfection of character."
"All things are in process of change. You yourself are ceaselessly undergoing transformation and the decay of some of your parts and so is the whole universe."
"If he sinned, the harm is his own. Yet perhaps, after all, he did not!"
