YOUR life is a warfare, and a mere pilgrimage.

MARCUS AURELIUS. MEDITATIONS. Book ii. 15.

THOU hast taken ship, thou hast sailed, thou art come to land: go out, if to another life, there also shalt thou find gods, who are everywhere. If all life and sense shall cease, then shalt thou cease also to be subject to either pains, or pleasures.

MARCUS AURELIUS. MEDITATIONS. Book iii. 4.

THE art of true living in this world, is more like a wrestler's than a dancer's practice. For in this they both agree, to teach a man, whatsoever falls upon him, that he may be ready for it, and that nothing may cast him down.

MARCUS AURELIUS. MEDITATIONS. Book vii. 33.
