Marcus Aurelius V.19

“19. Things have no hold on the soul. They have no access to it, cannot move or direct it. It is moved and directed by itself alone. It takes the things before it and interprets them as it sees fit.”

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

“Outward things can touch the soul not a whit; they know no way into it, they have no power to sway or move it. By itself it sways and moves itself; it has its own self-approved standards of judgement, and to them it refers every experience.” (19)
