Quotes by Marcus Aurelius

Emperor, Roman philosopher and writer, born in Rome (Italy), died in Vindobona (Austria)

Remember that neither the future nor the past pains thee, but only the present. But this is reduced to a very little, if thou only circumscribest it, and chidest thy mind, if it is unable to hold out against even this.
Marcus Aurelius

    What is my ruling faculty now to me? And of what nature am I now making it? And for what purpose am I now using it? Is it void of understanding? Is it loosed and rent asunder from social life? Is it melted and mixed with the poor flesh so as to move together with it?
    Marcus Aurelius

      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.
      Marcus Aurelius
