From Marcus Aurelius

From Marcus Aurelius

“When Thou Art Offended with Any Man’s Transgression, Presently reflect upon thyself; and consider what thou thyself art guilty of in the same kind. As that thou also perchance dost think it a happiness either to be rich, or to live in pleasure, or to be praised and commended, and so of the rest in particular. For this if thou shalt call to mind, thou shalt soon forget thine anger; especially when at the same time this also shall concur in thy thoughts, that he was constrained by his error and ignorance so to do: for how can he choose as long as he is of that opinion? Do thou therefore if thou canst, take away that from him, that forceth him to do as he doth.”

Excerpt From Marcus Aurelius: Emperor of Rome Marcus Aurelius. “Meditations.” Book Ten, #30.
