Marcus Aurelius Quote: “He who pays no attention to what his neighbor does, says or thinks, preferring to concentrate on making his own actions appropriate and justifiable, better uses his time.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “Find joy in simplicity, self-respect, and indifference to what lies between virtue and vice. Love the human race. Follow the divine.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “A little flesh, a little breath, and a Reason to rule all – that is myself.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “Be content to seem what you really are.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “A man must stand erect, not be kept erect by others.”

Marcus Aurelius Quote: “Humans have come into being for the sake of each other, so either teach them, or learn to bear them.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “Whatever may happen to you was prepared for you from all eternity; and the implication of causes was from eternity spinning the thread of your being.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “Your manners will depend very much upon the quality of what you frequently think on; for the soul is as it were tinged with the colour and complexion of thought.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “Whatever anyone does or says, I must be emerald and keep my colour.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “You are a little soul carrying about a corpse, as Epictetus used to say.”

Marcus Aurelius Quote: “Never value anything as profitable to thyself which shall compel thee to break thy promise, to lose thy self-respect, to hate any man, to suspect, to curse, to act the hypocrite, to desire anything which needs walls and curtains.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “Take the shortest route. The one that nature planned – to speak and act in the healthiest way. Do that, and be free of pain and stress, free of all calculations and pretension.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “Think of yourself as dead. You have lived your life. Now, take what’s left and live it properly. What doesn’t transmit light creates its own darkness.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “We are born for cooperation.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “Spend your brief moment according to nature’s law, and serenely greet the journey’s end as an olive falls when it is ripe, blessing the branch that bare it, and giving thanks to the tree that gave it life.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “When jarred, unavoidably, by circumstance revert at once to yourself and don’t lose the rhythm more than you can help. You’ll have a better grasp of harmony if you keep going back to it.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “Time is a sort of river of passing events, and strong is its current; no sooner is a thing brought to sight than it is swept by and another takes its place, and this too will be swept away.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “Body. Soul. Mind. Sensations: the body. Desires: the soul. Reasoning: the mind.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “Were you to live three thousand years, or even thirty thousand, remember that the sole life which a man can lose is that which he is living at the moment; and furthermore, that he can have no other life except the one he loses...”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “The perfection of moral character consists in this, in passing every day as the last, and in being neither violently excited nor torpid nor playing the hypocrite.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “Look to nothing, not even for a moment except to reason.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “One universe made up all that is; and one God in it all, and one principle of being, and one law, the reason shared by all thinking creatures, and one truth.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “And in the case of superior things like stars, we discover a kind of unity in separation. The higher we rise on the scale of being, the easier it is to discern a connection even among things separated by vast distances.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “We ought to do good to others as simply as a horse runs, or a bee makes honey, or a vine bears grapes season after season without thinking of the grapes it has borne.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “I will march on in the path of nature till my legs sink under me, and then I shall be at rest, and expire into that air which has given me my daily breath.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “Yet living and dying, honour and dishonour, pain and pleasure, riches and poverty, and so forth are equally the lot of good men and bad. Things like these neither elevate nor degrade; and therefore they are no more good than they are evil.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “How powerful is man! He is able to do all that God wishes him to do. He is able to accept all that God sends upon him.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “Perhaps there are none more lazy, or more truly ignorant, than your everlasting readers.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “The universal order and the personal order are nothing but different expressions and manifestations of a common underlying principle.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “Flinch not, neither give up nor despair, if the achieving of every act in accordance with right principle is not always continuous with thee.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “If any man can convince me and bring home to me that which I do not think or act aright, gladly will I change; for I search after truth, by which man never yet was harmed. But he is harmed who abideth on still in his deception and ignorance.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “The soul is dyed by the thoughts. Dye it then, with a continuous series of such thoughts as these – that where a man can live, there – if he will – he can also live well.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “Remind oneself continually of one of those who practiced virtue in days gone by.”
Marcus Aurelius Quote: “Deem not life a thing of consequence. For look at the yawning void of the future, and at that other limitless space, the past.”
