Quotes by Marcus Aurelius

How much more grievous are the consequences of anger than the causes of it.

Anger cannot be dishonest.

The art of living is more like wrestling than dancing.

When thou art above measure angry, bethink thee how momentary is man's life.

Anything in any way beautiful derives its beauty from itself and asks nothing beyond itself. Praise is no part of it, for nothing is made worse or better by praise.

The best revenge is to be unlike him who performed the injury.

To refrain from imitation is the best revenge.

Loss is nothing else but change, and change is Nature's delight.

Be content with what you are, and wish not change nor dread your last day, nor long for it.

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.
