Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.
One of the great Roman emperors, Marcus Aurelius (121 – 180 AD) was also a wise and stoic philosopher. His legacy has continued throughout the many centuries since ehis death.
My favourite philosopher
An astonishing man. Did you see the other quote of his I have out up?
It must have been before I began to follow you. Can you please send me the link?
Surely the first Marcus? I think if pushed I’d have to go with this quote
Thanks – have commented on post
Imagine being so brilliant that people are quoting you centuries later?
Yes – and understand him. I once set an advanced cryptic crossword for The Times Listener based on his ‘all is flux……’
That must have been amazing!
Thanks – it did go down rather well
Bruce Goodman has correctly pointed out that the ‘all is flux…..’ was Heraclitus, not Marcus. doh!
A great quotation from Caesar Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Augustus thanks!
I guess with that many names he got used to writing from a young age 😉
What a wonderful quote 🙂
