Six Marcus Aurelius quotes

From "Meditations"
  1. If it is not the right thing to do, never do it; if it is not the truth, never say it.
  2. In the management of your principles, take example by the pugilist, not the swordsman. One puts down his blade and has to pick it up again; the other is never without his hand, and so needs only to clench it.
  3. To be in process of change is not an evil, any more than to be the product of change is good.
  4. Think of yourself as dead. You have lived your life. Now, take what's left and live it properly.
  5. Waste no more time arguing what a good man should be. Be one.
  6. You may break your heart, but men will still go on as before.
