from the emperorPosted: May 19, 2012
I have always thought Marcus Aurelius was a great man.
And although we now know more science and facts than anyone from AD 180, be careful of discounting the past. Temper your facts with wisdom. For are we really wiser than the man who can say:
Our life is what our thoughts make it.
Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
May your thoughts paint a masterpiece for you to live to.
And as great an man as Aurelius was, he was human for his son Commodus
became a terrible ruler. It is hard enough to live our own lives.
