  1. I read somewhere that “Meditations” came from Marcus Aurelius’ journal in his later years. It was only later that others shared his wisdom.
    He would have been a great blogger!
    Thank you for sharing Vincent his simply profound message.

  2. Yes, I’ve heard that, too, Val.
    It’s interesting that such philosophy and equanimity would emerge from someone who was busily fighting wars during the decade these were written.
    When he wrote these a couple thousand years before the Internet, fortunately there was some kind of paper. I doubt he would carried around such wisdom on stone tablets. 😉
