Marcus Aurelius: Death, Power & Beauty

Marcus Aurelius quotes

“The sexual embrace can only be compared with music and with prayer.”

“Death smiles at us all; all we can do is smile back.”

“The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts.”

“Remember that very little is needed to make a happy life.”

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

“The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.”

“It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live.”

“Don’t go on discussing what a good person should be. Just be one.”

“If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.”

“Everything that happens happens as it should, and if you observe carefully, you will find this to be so.”

Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.”

“Do every act of your life as though it were the very last act of your life.”
