Marcus Aurelius on Life and Death

Born on this day in 121 AD, Marcus Auerlius was Emperor of Rome from 161 to 180 AD. He was considered the last of the so-called “five good emperors” and he was a great stoic philosopher. Here said:

When you arise in the morning think of what a privilege it is to be alive, to think, to enjoy, to love…

Here is a rule to remember in future, when anything tempts you to feel bitter: not ‘This is misfortune,’ but ‘To bear this worthily is good fortune.’
