Observe constantly that all things take place by change, and accustom thyself to consider that the nature of the Universe loves nothing so much as to change the things which are, and to make new things like them.
Marcus Aurelius (121 - 180)

Thou wilt find rest from vain fancies if thou doest every act in life as though it were thy last.
The act of dying is one of the acts of life.
How much more grievous are the consequences of anger than the causes of it.
Contributed by: Brian
When thou art above measure angry, bethink thee how momentary is man's life.
No form of Nature is inferior to Art; for the arts merely imitate natural forms.
How ridiculous and unrealistic is the man who is astonished at anything that happens in life.
Love the little trade which thou hast learned, and be content therewith.
You exist but as a part inherent in a greater whole. Do not live as though you had a thousand years before you. The common due impends; while you live, and while you may, be good.
Do every act of your life as if it were your last.
