From Marcus Aurelius 2

From Marcus Aurelius

“There are obvious objections to the Cynic Monimus’s statement that ‘things are taken by the view taken of them;’ but the value of his aphorism is equally obvious, if we admit the substance of it so far as it contains a truth.”

“Remember that All Is but Opinion and Conceit, for Those Things are plain and apparent, which were spoken unto Monimus the Cynic; and as plain and apparent is the use that may be made of those things, if that which is true and serious in them, be received as well as that which is sweet and pleasing.”
