Quotes - Marcus Aurelius

And I know I shouldn't, but I always picture him as the old guy who played him in Gladiator. Then again, it doesn't matter.
Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present.

How much time he saves who does not look to see what his neighbor says or does or thinks.

Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.

Nothing has such power to broaden the mind as the ability to investigate systematically and truly all that comes under thy observation in life.

Death is a release from the impressions of the senses, and from desires that make us their puppets, and from the vagaries of the mind, and from the hard service of the flesh.

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.

There are three classes into which all the women past seventy that ever I knew were to be divided: 1. That dear old soul; 2. That old woman; 3. That old witch.

You have power over your mind - not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.

Your life is what your thoughts make it.

I feel like watching movies tonight. Maybe a Hewlettfest.

And OMG ONE DAY! *does the dance of squeeing fangirl, then hangs head in shame*
