Wisdom from the Past – Marcus Aurelius.

I have been nominated by https://aguycalledbloke.blog/ for a very interesting challenge “Ancient Authors”

See link below:


The rules are simple, as always:

  • Choose the author or philosopher (it should be one from the Ancient Times). Don’t know anyone? Google it, It shouldn’t be so hard. 
  • Choose 3 quotes of this author/philosopher. The country of origin – doesn’t matter (Egypt, Greece…Italy). Add any info or explanation if you like. 
  • Share those quotes and nominate 3 to 6 people. 
  • The title for the post? Choose something cool.

OK my choice of Ancient Wise One is the great Marcus Aurelius.

He was actually a Roman Emperor  but unlike other Roman emperors you may have heard of, like Caligula and Nero, he wasn’t a debauched power crazed deviant. He was actually a philosopher and very learned man who then became an Emperor and was an extremely beneficent and wise man.

As always, you do not have to take part if you don’t want to or are too busy. You can also save it for when yo1u have a free moment, if you’d rather.

And that will probably do. However if you see this, and fancy having a go then consider yourself nominated!

All the best

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.

  1. Excellent quotes my friend and in the words of your chosen “Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.” What ever you yourself have chosen to do today, do it well 🙂
