And thou wilt give thyself relief, if thou doest every act of thy life as if it were the last.
Marcus Aurelius (121 - 180)
Contributed by: Zaady
When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.
Look beneath the surface; let not the several quality of a thing nor its worth escape thee.
Think not disdainfully of death, but look on it with favor; for even death is one of the things that Nature wills.
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.
Men are created one for another, either then teach them or bear with.
Life is a warfare and a stranger's sojourn, and after fame is oblivion.
The art of living is more like wrestling than dancing; the main thing is to stand firm and be ready for an unforeseen attack.
The object in life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.
The universe is change; our life is what our thoughts make it.
