“Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
“A flower blooming in the desert proves to the world that adversity, no matter how great, can be overcome.”
“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.”
“Freedom is the name of virtue: Slavery, of vice…. None is a slave whose acts are free.”
“Begin the morning by saying to yourself, I shall meet with the busybody, the ungrateful, arrogant, deceitful, envious, unsocial. All these things happen to them by reason of their ignorance of what is good and evil. … I can neither be injured by any of them, for no one can fix on me what is ugly, nor can I be angry with my kinsman, nor hate him.” -Marcus Aurelius
