Test Of Time

A  L  O  H  A !

“The best revenge is to be 
unlike him who 
performed the injury.” 
            Marcus Aurelius

“The soul becomes dyed with 
the colour of its thoughts.” 
             Marcus Aurelius

“If someone is able to show me 
that what I think or do is not right, 
I will happily change, for I seek the truth.
 It is the person who continues self-deception 
and ignorance who is harmed.” 
                     Marcus Aurelius

Lately I have been reading
words that stood
the test of time.
Some terms are archaic,
written in antique rhyme,
But truth calls to truth
regardless of the times.
It's good to refresh perspective,
leave passions of the moment behind.
So often we already own the gem
we're furious to find.

Thank YOU
                Wisely, cloudia


“If it is not right do not do it; 
if it is not true do not say it.” 

“Very little is needed to make a happy life; 
it is all within yourself in your way of thinking.” 

“The object of life is not to be on 
the side of the majority, but to 
escape finding oneself in 
the ranks of the insane.” 
            Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

George Washington, first US President quoted Marcus Aurelius. 
 "President Bill Clinton said that Meditations is his favorite book,and United States Secretary of Defense James Mattis carried his own personal copy of The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius throughout his deployments as a Marine Corps officer in the Persian Gulf, Afghanistan and Iraq."
