" Begin the morning by saying to thyself: I shall meet with the busybody, the ungrateful, arrogant, deceitful, envious, unsocial. All these things happen to them by reason of their ignorance of what is good and evil.
But I, who have seen the nature of the good that it is beautiful, and of the bad that it is ugly, and the nature of him who does wrong, that it is akin to me, not only of the same blood or seed, but that it participates in the same intelligence and the same portion of the divinity, I can neither be injured by any of them, for no one can fix on me what is ugly, nor can I be angry with my kinsman, nor hate him.
For we are made for co-operation, like feet, like hands, like eyelids, like the rows of the upper and lower teeth.
To act against one another, then, is contrary to nature; and it is acting against one another to be vexed and to turn away.
Do not act as if thou wert going to live ten thousand years. Death hangs over thee.
While thou livest, while it is in thy power, be good. "
- Marcus Aurelius (121 -180 AD) -"Meditations"
Emperor of Rome (160 -180 AD)
