From Marcus Aurelius

From Marcus Aurelius

6. “Practice that also wherein thou hast no expectation of success. For even the left hand, which for every other function is inefficient by reason of a want of practice, has yet a firmer grip of the bridle than the right. For it has had practice in this.”

  • Excerpt From: Emperor of Rome Marcus Aurelius. “Meditations.”

Book #12

“6. Practice even what seems impossible. The left hand is useless at almost everything for lack of practice. But it guides the reins better than the right. From practice.”
