Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Quotations

-Look within. Within is the fountain of good, and it will ever bubble up, if thou wilt ever dig.

-Think not so much of what you have not, as of what you have.

-The art of living is more like wrestling than dancing.

-How much more grievous are the consequences of our anger than the acts which arouse it.

-The universe is a single life comprising one substance and one soul.

-To live each day as though one’s last, never flustered, never apathetic, never attitudinizing, here is the perfection of character.

-Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present.

-Time is a sort of river of passing events, and strong is its current; no sooner is a thing brought to sight than it is swept by and another takes its place, and this too will be swept away.

-Waste no more time talking about great souls and how they should be. Become one yourself!

-If you are pained by external things, it is not they that disturb you, but your own judgment of them. And it is in your power to wipe out that judgment now.
