“I know the feelings of my heart, and I know men.
I am not made like any of those I have seen;
I venture to believe that I am not made like any of those who are in existence.

If I am not better, at least I am different.
Whether Nature has acted rightly or wrongly in destroying the mould in which she cast me, can only be decided after I have been read.”
― Jean Jacques Rousseau, Confessions

The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts. Marcus Aurelius


How soon will time cover all things, and how many it has covered already. Marcus Aurelius


Remember: Matter. How tiny your share of it.
Time. How brief and fleeting your allotment of it.
Fate. How small a role you play in it. Marcus Aurelius

Marcus Aurelius Quotes
The first step: Don’t be anxious. Nature controls it all.

The second step: Concentrate on what you have to do. Fix your eyes on it. Remind yourself that your task is to be a good human being; remind yourself what nature demands of people. Then do it, without hesitation, and speak the truth as you see it. But with kindness. With humility. Without hypocrisy.

Don’t be overheard complaining… Not even to yourself.

Do not be perturbed, for all things are according to the nature of the universal; and in a little time you will be nobody and nowhere.

True good fortune is what you make for yourself. Good fortune: good character, good intentions, good actions.

Let not your mind run on what you lack as much as on what you have already.

Objective judgement, now, at this very moment. Unselfish action, now, at this very moment. Willing acceptance, now, at this very moment – of all external events. That’s all you need.

How ridiculous and how strange to be surprised at anything which happens in life.

You’re subject to sorrow, fear, jealousy, anger and inconsistency. That’s the real reason you should admit that you are not wise.
