Book 6 Marcus Aurelius

Book 6 Marcus Aurelius

As seen here

“2. Make no difference in doing thy duty whether thou art shivering or warm, drowsy or sleep-satisfied, defamed or extolled, dying or anything else. For the act of dying too is one of the acts of life. So it is enough in this also to get the work in hand done well.”

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

Short form?

“Just do the right thing.”

“2. Just do the right thing. The rest doesn’t matter.
Cold or warm.
Tired or well-rested.
Despised or honored.
Dying or busy with other assignments.
Because dying, too, is one of our assignments in life. There as well, to do what needs doing.”
