The act of dying is one of the acts of life.
Marcus Aurelius (121 - 180)

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.
Be not careless in deeds, nor confused in words, nor rambling in thought.
Forward, as occasion offers. Never look round to see whether any shall note it. . . . Be satisfied with success in even the smallest matter, and think that even such a result is no trifle.
Do every act of your life as if it were your last.
