Daily Stoicism: Marcus Aurelius

Have True Liberty and Unvariable Steadfastness:

Do not esteem anything at all but right and reason. Also, no matter what ailments may come of you, whether a loss of family or disease, remain the same man. Be both vehement and remiss; do not be fretted and offended by your peers inability to understand your discourses. No matter how highly you are regarded by others you must not overly esteem yourself. You will achieve the highest freedom when you are self-reliant
