More from Marcus Aurelius...

"When force of circumstance upsets your equanimity, lose no time in recovering your self-control and do not remain out of tune longer than you can help. Habitual recurrence to the harmony will increase your mastery of it."

"To see the things of the present moment is to see all that is now, all that has been since time began and all that shall be unto the world's end; for all things are of one kind and one form."

"No one can stop you living according to the laws of your own personal nature, and nothing can happen to you against the laws of the World-Nature."
