Newsletter #36 : Words of Wise by Stoics

How long are you going to wait before you demand the best for yourself?


Waste no more time arguing what a good man should be. Be One.

Marcus Aurelius

Begin at once to live, and count each separate day as a separate life.

Whatever can happen at any time can happen today.

All cruelty springs from weakness.

True happiness is to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future, not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is sufficient, for he that is so wants nothing. The greatest blessings of mankind are within us and within our reach. A wise man is content with his lot, whatever it may be, without wishing for what he has not.
