Marcus Aurelius

I saw a woman being incredibly rude to the bus driver today. I was like ich, gross. I don't know if y'all like Marcus Aurelius.
“When you wake up in the morning, tell yourself: The people I deal with today will be meddling, ungrateful, arrogant, dishonest, jealous and surly. They are like this because they can’t tell good from evil. But I have seen the beauty of good, and the ugliness of evil and have recognized that the wrongdoer has a nature related to my own–not of the same blood or birth, but the same mind, and possessing a share of the divine. And so none of them can hurt me.”
Oh and he was a badass emperor. If you like that, check out the whole book on amazon:

I mean, geez just look at how good the first page is...
