Marcus Aurelius (meditations)

Marcus Aurelius (meditations)

  1. “The lover of glory conceives his own good to consist in another’s action, the lover of pleasure in his own feelings, but the possessor of understanding in his own actions.”

Ἔξεστι περὶ τούτου μηδὲν ὑπολαμβάνειν καὶ μὴ ὀχλεῖσθαι τῇ ψυχῇ: αὐτὰ γὰρ τὰ πράγματα οὐκ ἔχει φύσιν ποιητικὴν τῶν ἡμετέρων κρίσεων.”

Book VI

  1. “Ambition means tying your well-being to what other people say or do.
    Self-indulgence means tying it to the things that happen to you.
    Sanity means tying it to your own actions.”
Book 6.51
