Marcus Aurelius Antoninus

Because your own strength is unequal to the task, do not assume that it is beyond the powers of man; but if anything is within the powers and province of man, believe that it is within your own compass also. - Marcus Aurelius Antoninus

The true worth of a man is to be measured by the objects he pursues. - Marcus Aurelius Antoninus

Look beneath the surface; let not the several quality of a thing nor its worth escape thee. - Marcus Aurelius Antoninus

Time is a sort of river of passing events, and strong as its current; no sooner is a thing brought to sight than it is swept by and another takes its place, and this too will be swept away. - Marcus Aurelius Antoninus

Live not one's life as though one had a thousand years, but live each day as the last.  - Marcus Aurelius Antoninus
